Out now and soon vinyl too on July 10th is the album “Mood – WSNWGBTZ001” by Rødhåd aka producer Mike Bierbach. ‘WSNWGBTZ001’ stands for ‘WSNWG – Back to zero’ in case you wondered, WSNWG being the label this album was released on. It’s Bierbach’s first ambient experimentalist release, comprised of his own solo archival material mostly from 2017/2018.
You’ll discover field recordings, droning loops and soundscapes on this 18-track album. You can check it out below. Good stuff.
From techno to ambient
Known in contemporary Techno circles, Mike Bierbach has been DJing as a relatively unnoted local in Berlin for 10 years before launching his party-series-turned-label Dystopian in 2009. Dystopian has hosted most of his releases, but in 2018 he founded a new label WSNWG that serves as a home for collaborative productions, excavated in sessions at his East-Berlin studio with his peers such as Lucy, Alex.Do, & Antigone.
