Stephan Panev is currently way down the album recording rabbit hole. This is the main reason why the one responsible for our existence took his time to deliver KOMPONENTI bound work.
The so called “Strobe Sequence I” is obsessingly dancefloor hungry set of tools. The two original works have a bit of a bipolar approach between each other – both dedicated on the one light source every basement should have – a strobe light.
It’s also hard not to notice the nasty attitude found in basically every time Prone reworks something.

SPK004 is here. Masterfully brought to life by Modeo, who is someone you should keep an eye out in 2013 and the years to come.
Industrial sounds and atmospheres layered on top of the hard hitting broken beats in the two originals.
“Nebt” being the title track is also the heaviest of the pack, while the Prone Rework comes with a straight 4/4 beat to make it right again – not in conventional way.
The last but not least, “Spine” – a razor sharp blade of noise – check yourself for wounds when convinient.

Josef Gaard & Stephan Panev have managed to share quite a few mutual projects for the last few years. The meeting point is This Ain’t Music – a small label based in Berlin acting as a creative hub between them. This is the very reason why Stephan Panev made sure that he will eventually become the second KOMPONENTI artist and t0 end up releasing SPK003. This is the podcast he recorded for the occasion.
SPK003 comes from Josef Gaard and packs 3 raw techno cuts for your dancefloor. The two original tracks represent Josef’s sound at his best – drone excursions with a uncompromising groove base .
‘Siren’ is an industrial walk in the dark corners of the music, a track that never really drops the pressure.
‘Diviner’ on the other end provides a different approach on top of a slow beat, exactly what you need to change the pace on the dancefloor.
The pack wouldn’t be complete without a Prone Rework, and Prone delivers – a stripped down but heavy hitting revision.

For the second release Prone delivers a defining collection showcasing his rather broad vision of Techno.
“Collapse” sets the mood for the whole experience thanks to the larger than life sound & a kick drum that steals the show.
Followed by “Hunted” – a relentless Techno tool ready to reap whenever unleashed.
The third mood swing comes in the form of “Butane” – the one you can count on when you end up on the right end of a warehouse party – the DJ booth.

SPK001 comes from Prone. Remember the name – we already have his next release in the works as well as a few remixes. The two slices of audio here should be considered as ground zero for the KOMPONENTI sound. In time you will know what we mean.
Stephan Panev firmly believes that one of the proudest moments in our history as mankind is the remix concept. Hence why we will always make sure to provide you with all kinds of revisions in our releases.
The first one is special because it is by a long time collaborator – Josef Gaard. We are proud to have him on board here.
