The low down
Hunter/Game are going to be releasing their album Adaptation on 5th Feb, on the rather massive Kompakt records.
For me, their work as Landside and the two EPs they released last year outshines any of their other production so far, but listening to album tracks like “Silver” or even just the album intro “Walking Unobserved” I’d say more of Kúra’s Nordic-feeling production has rubbed off on them than they maybe think.
Known for dramatic dance tunes that previously found their way onto labels such as Innervisions, Last Night On Earth or global event brand / record imprint Just This, Italian duo Hunter/Game has evolved its sound into a uniquely expressive, yet subtly arranged variant of techno – music that confidently takes centre stage, but never puts the sonic means before its aesthetic goal. Honing a satisfying punch and mesmerizing melodies.
So if that sounds like “your bag” and you’ve got a penchant for super-slick polished Italian techno then start saving those pennies now, the vinyl is on the way.
