Fabian Wegmeth – VISION IV – Never Adore (Vision Ekstase, VE004)
Stuttgart-based artist Fabian Wegmeth debuts on his Vision Ekstase label this May with four hypnotic techno cuts entitled ‘VISION IV – Never Adore’.
German artist Fabian Wegmeth is a widely known face throughout his home city of Stuttgart. Fabian has been regularly DJing and organising events at the city’s techno hotspot Lehmann Club since 2018 and co- founded the exciting label and event series Vision Ekstase with his friends David Lohlein, Symon and Rove Ranger, who all hold previous releases on the imprint. Fabian represents this new generation of techno artists, and his earlier releases on Android Muziq and Counterpulse all display his prowess for producing glistening techno sonics. ‘VISION IV – Never Adore’ is his debut release on his Vision Ekstase imprint after a short hiatus due to the pandemic and now returns with a four-track EP that Fabian describes as ‘a driving, hypnotic journey’.
‘Panting On Her Knees’ gets this release moving with icy high-hats, fierce bass grooves and menacing fx before ‘In Search Of Pain’ lay focus on fizzing elements, shimmering rhythms and haunting synths that continue to spiral throughout.
On the flip, ‘Slide Out Of My Hands’ makes way for pounding kicks, dark, twisted soundscapes and shadowy low frequencies. Fabian then masterfully rounds off this explorative techno EP with ‘Never Adore’ featuring stabbing laser gun-like modulations, eerie atmospheres and powerful elements which harmonise with one another impressively.
