Tresor Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

Along with Ostgut Ton, Tresor Records is the label that has defined the sound of Berlin techno more than perhaps any other. Sound-wise the pair are two sides of the same coin. While Ostgut productions are often spacious and dubby, Tresor Records tend...read more »

Helena Hauff
Kern Vol. 5 - Exclusives + Rarities

Tresor has a knack for selecting some of the finest techno/electro DJs of our time for their magnificently curated ‘Kern’ series. Kern Vol. 5 follows mixes from Objekt and DJ Stingray with a thrilling mix from Hamburg-based DJ and producer Helena Hauff. This lady is an absolute demon on the decks... The 2CD includes her full mix, while the vinyl edition includes highlights with exclusive, previously unreleased tracks from Hauff & Morah, Umwelt, Machino, Galaxian and L.F.T. plus rarities from Esoterik, DJ Godfather & DJ Starski, and Andrea Parker and David Morley. HOT!!!

Drexciya
Hydro Doorways

The “Hydro Doorways” EP was originally released in 2000. It's long out of print and in dire need of a reissue. Here it is! This compliments of the Neptune's Lair LP and could be described as a sister release. Gerald Donald and James Stinson were at the height of their game when this baby was originally released and fans of techno unite in their love of all things Drexciyan. Genius lads!

Drexciya
Digital Tsunami

Sadly ‘electro’ is now all too often synonymous with mostly terrible stuff -- electroclash, electro swing, etc. Well, Drexciya was electro at its best - hard, dark, and fast. As a new wave of young producers are obviously going back to these roots -- a quick listen to Objekt’s Flatland, one of the best records of 2014, is testament to this -- it’s nice to see Tresor reissuing this on 12”. Keep an eye out for Tresor’s upcoming reissue of Drexciya’s double-LP ‘Harness the Storm’, too.

Rod Modell
Captagon

Techno man Rod Modell is back with a full length album for that there Tresor. On Captagon Modell has refined his craft. Tracks change impercitably but still manage to hit hard. On top of this the producer is capable of tackling a variety of tempos, his minimalism surviving everything he throw at it. What can I say but "oooofff!"

Abdul Qadim Haqq
The Book of Drexciya Vol. 1

The first five chapters of Abdul Qadim Haqq’s Drexciyan odyssey, developed out of the mythology created by Detroit techno outfit Drexciya and concerning an underwater nation populated by the babies of pregnant African women who were thrown off of slave ships, are commemorated in this 76-page hardcover graphic novel. 

Sleeparchive
Trust

Sleeparchive is the project of East Berlin resident Roger Semsroth who has also recorded as Skanfrom and Television Set. His latest album explores his techno credentials on a series of tightly wound techno loops with cascading synths and deep dark atmospheres. Certainly the spectre of Terrence Dixon is alive in some of these pieces. Further groundbreaking work from an under the radar master.

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

One of the most revered techno acts of all time, Drexciya were mysterious, near anonymous and blended futuristic beat work with Afro influences resulting in a kind of underwater dance music. Harnessed the Storm was their second full length album and is one of their most intense works blending sci-fi influenced electro with uncompromising rhythms. Truly legendary. 

Minimal Violence
DESTROY ---> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <--- TRUST Phase One

Minimal Violence release the first of three EPs scheduled for the next year all bearing the same unwieldy title DESTROY ---> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <--- TRUST. On Phase One, the Vancouver based duo take their ferocious, techno-based noise to new and thrilling extremes over four brilliant tracks.

Surgeon
Force + Form

Often regarded as Anthony Child's best work, 'Force + Form' collects four meaty slabs of industrial tainted techno together. Cold, minimalist and repetitive bangers which sound like they've been beamed down from aliens from the future. If you're looking for a place to start with the more challenging and harsher tones of techno, then this is a perfect album for you. Surgeon's DJ sets have become legendary too, so if you can catch him at some gritty underground club somewhere, make sure you do so.

Function
Existenz

Function delivers Existenz, his first solo LP since 2013’s Incubation. Known largely as a techno savant, Existenz actually locks into a more cerebral and considered sound than some of Function’s previous releases. There are, for instance, a fair few new age and hypnagogic influences to be found throughout the album, a flex that pushes this particular plane of Existenz towards the sound of Answer Code Request’s recent LP for Ostgut Ton. Robert Owens and Stefanie Parnow guest.

James Ruskin
Point 2

Just short of two decades since its initial release, James Ruskin's 'Point 2' is reissued - re-energising the catchy loops and crispy drums that captured hearts back in the early naughties, with a couple of previously unreleased tracks thrown in to boot. It's a hard slab of pure techno, inspired by the minimal Detroit sound and influential in the UK underground.

James Ruskin
Siklikal EP

As prolific as ever, James Ruskin offers yet another exciting release - this time in the form of the 4-track 'Siklikal EP'. Hectic synths and jittery beats are sprinkled generously across the release, further evidencing the producer's adventurous nature. Fit for both the dancefloor and candle-lit bedroom listening.

Sleeparchive
Revised Recordings

Sleeparchive returns to Tresor after six years away. To celebrate the occasion the one born Roger Semsroth has come through with a bumper collection of tools on new EP Revised Recordings. The high-octane techno tracks ‘Frost’, ‘Wood’ and ‘Trust (V.2)’ are classic Tresor fare - think Jeff Mills and Robert Hood. The EP also includes the six ‘Sleep Cycles’ locked grooves, all of which can be blended together in a variety of intriguing ways. Revised Recordings is one for the adventurous DJ in you.

Robert Hood
Master Builder

Detroit techno innovator Robert Hood released his classic album Internal Empire in 1994. It was a classic of minimal techno. It is being reissued to celebrate its 25th anniversary. To add extra weight to those celebrations there's,  a re-cut of the album’s single, Master Builder. On Tresor.

Psyk
A Moment Before

You know what they do down in Tresor. They do techno. Psyk does just that here on his second full-length album, brought into the world by the label arm of Berlin’s Tresor. Psyk is working at a high level here on A Moment Before, with tight control over stripped-back material. Nine tracks over four sides of vinyl.

Robert Hood
Internal Empire

When truly groundbreaking records are made, they sound as fresh 25 years after their initial release as they did back in the day. This is most-certainly true of Robert Hood’s minimal techno masterpiece Internal Empire. The album has been remastered and re-cut on CD and 180g vinyl and will be released through its original label, Tresor.

Infiniti
Skynet

Juan Atkins put out Skynet under his Infiniti moniker twenty years ago, so seeing as the thing’s birthday was coming up Tresor have decided to reissue the LP. You know the drill with Atkins - impeccably crafted minimal techno grooves, vaguely cosmic synth work, the occasional high-NRG excursion (‘Skyway’). Terrence Dixon’s all over this record too. Lovely old job.

Porter Ricks
Shadow Boat EP

Returning after a whopping 17 year hiatus, Porter Ricks are back. The duo return with Shadow Boat EP, a deeply nuanced comeback that explores unfathomable ambience. Glitchy and gurgling synths ebb away across the 3-track offering, which concludes at the pulsating, dancefloor-ready Harbour Chart.

XOR Gate
Conic Sections

Tresor present yet another alias from Heinrich Mueller - real name Gerald Donald. The legendary Detroit producer has been behind some of the most impressive, immersive and cutting-edge electronic music to emerge from the motor city; Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Arpanet,Der Zyklus, Glass Domain, Intellitronic, Japanese Telecom, Rudolf Klorzeiger, Z Therapy, Abstract Thought, Daughter Produkt, Flexitone, Gedankenexperiment, L.A.M., NRSB-11, Zerkalo, Zwischenwelt. This new project is a single 30-minute piece which was originally commissioned by ArtCenter South Florida in Miami. If you skipped geometry class, fear not as Donald's sounds require no understanding of his concepts to be enjoyed. Sit back as three dimensional shapes plot new trajectories as they emerge from the speakers.

Manni Dee
The Residue

After a few years dropping EPs on labels like Perc Trax, Leyla and Earwiggle, Manni Dee makes the jump to Tresor for his debut LP. The Residue is an uncompromising listen that intends to mirror the dystopian state of modern London life in sound. EBM, industrial, acid and hardcore influences crop up all over this LP and come as Manni Dee’s soundtrack to the grim realities of gentrification and atomisation that are part-and-parcel of life in the Big Smoke these days. Fortunately for him (and us) he’s still managed to make this thing bang.

Surgeon
Force + Form Remakes

Late 90’s hard techno business from master of this-sort-of-thing Surgeon. Force + Form Remakes accompanies the reissue of the album, with Surgeon himself providing two brand new spins on the material, as well as a take from Mick Harris, formerly of Napalm Death. As firm and heavy as ever from Mr Child. 12” on Tresor.

Surgeon
Basictonalvocabulary

Tresor are going about reissuing a few classic LPs from hard techno master Surgeon. 1997’s Basictonalvocabulary is the sophomore album from the Birmingham DJ/producer and also the first full-length he cut for the Berlin label. With its relentless drum programming, booming bass and busy lead lines Basictonalvocabulary would help define the sound of both Surgeon and Tresor for years to come. An essential cop.

Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald
Transport Remixed

Was the superstar team-up of Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald not impressive enough for you already on their album Transport? Well then, better throw another big-deal producer in on the remix duties: Carl Craig! Carl has produced a 20-minute remix that is too large for this 12” vinyl, so the wax contains an edit, plus a further remix of that remix… Along with download code for the full business. On Tresor.

Berlin techno experts Tresor dig all the way back to 2000, when Terrence Dixon’s debut full-length album was first released. Of course, this is premium Detroit material for dancefloor propulsion, from a master producer on the rise. As well as the whole of From The Future pressed to two LPs, this reissue also adds a bonus 7” with two tracks never before released.

Kern Vol.3 mixed by Objekt

Kern is the in-house mix series of Tresor, the famed Berlin techno haven. Objekt provides Volume 3, a slick-mixed collection of his favourite DJ tools: think Shanti Celeste, Monojunk, Clatterbox. The whole mix is available on CD, or you can get either ‘The Exclusives’ or ‘The Rarities’ from the selection as standalone 12”s.

Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald present Borderland
Transport

The Borderland project combines key producers from the two international hubs of techno, Detroit and Berlin. The prospect of the two styles merging is a prospect to make beat-heads quiver, and this collaboration between Moritz von Oswald and Juan Atkins will not disappoint. Transport is a full-length, 7-track record of their inventive studio explorations, out on Tresor.

Marcelus
Vibrations

French producer Marcelus drops his debut full-length album on Berlin’s legendary Tresor imprint. Vibrations pushes through an array of techno styles, with strange textures and counter-rhythms allowed to join the soundspace: though never straying from that crucial 4/4 for long. This is proper techno stuff on a proper techno label, so the album comes spread over 3 LPs for maximum DJ usability.
