about

Hakan Sunar (Spiritual Machinery):

"I think a good techno track should have a bit of a concept added to it. Obviously, due to the nature of techno music, there isn't much melody or chord progression going on in a techno track. So you have to use the sounds to create emotions. But if you just throw in a bunch of cool sounds that don't really relate to anything I tend to loose my interest.

I find songs that pulls me into an imaginary world to be more exiting.

Take Johann Strauss's "An der schönen, blauen Donau" for instance.

You can really see how the birds fly out of the reeds and the sun shines in the water as the boat slowly sails out on the river.

You can achieve pretty much the same thing with sounds, and non or very little melody, too.

Like in Kraftwerk's "Morgenspaziergang" or in Einstürzende Neubautenä's early works.

This is also what I tried to do in "Bugs In The Box" as well as in this track.

E.K.G is an abbreviation for Elektrokardiogram (en electrocardiogram). What I tried to do in this track was to give the listener some sense of being connected to an EKG (ECG) machine - and, as the song progress, a bit of urgency.

The track was later remixed by Vlatko Georgiev who's mix was more slick and intense then the original version. At the end we decided to release his remix as the original version."


E.K.G is also available on Apple store, Amazon and Spotify.
