TWELVEEIGHT | 2020-06-19  
The 2018 Meakusma Festival in eastern Belgium saw the first ever joint live performance by Dman and Roger 23. »222« sees the recorded rehearsal takes for that performance edited and enhanced, conjuring up an album that consciously swerves in and out of concrete and dreamlike states, updating 90s-like ambient house and techno with a cavernous and conceptual stance.

Over the course of twelve tracks and two locked grooves, »222« brings concrete ideas to conclusions that are as coincidental as they are intentional. It is this dichotomy that drives the album, its experimental nature touching upon simplicity and complexity in equal measure. Infused by a desire to fully execute ideas or have the ideas reach their own conclusion, »222« has an explicit album structure, giving space to long stretches of echo-laden experimental soundscapes and beats that are introspective yet forward, while its short tracks break open the mold and reset attention. This is an album made by two forces of underground club music in Germany. Their shared knowledge informs it with a sense of history while at the same time updating and commenting on that same history. It uses house and techno as a portal into more experimental terrain.
