Funkstörung Reunites, Announces New LP
The German IDM duo returns with a self-titled album for the Modeselektor-helmed Monkeytown label.
Nearly a decade has passed since Funkstörung released its last studio album, The Return to Acid Planet, but German producers Christian de Luca and Michael Fakesch have finally emerged with news of a forthcoming, self-titled LP which will arrive via Monkeytown this summer. Describing the production process for Funkstörung, the veteran duo explains, “By now we don’t have to prove to anyone that we know how to program complex beats, breaks, and glitches (which became obsolete with new technology anyway)… to us it was more important to write good songs.” In addition to the announcement, the producers have shared a free download of edited album cut “Laid Out,” which features a breathy vocal contribution from Funkstörung’s “good friend” Anothr — a mysterious artist from the duo’s hometown of Rosenheim, Germany.
While we await for the full details of the upcoming Funkstörung LP to arrive, and ahead of the record’s official release on July 31, an edit of the pair’s “Laid Out” production can be streamed and downloaded below.
