Kollective Turmstrasse

If there's one thing separating the ordinary producer from the sublime producer, the emphasis placed on sound is surely it. In this context, Christian Hilscher and Nico Plageman, (known collectively as Kollektiv Turmstrasse) undoubtedly fit in to the latter section.

Renowned for their productions on a number of seminal German labels, the duo's sound is hard to define, with their latest LP, Rebellion der Träumer, serving to exaggerate the fact. Despite embarking on a production career in the mid 00's, they've left it up to now to release what is their debut LP. An attentive listen soon proves it's been worth the wait.

Kollective Turmstrasse - Rebellion Der Traumer Album is out now on Connaisseur Recordings. Listen/ Buy at Beatport
