Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell, and David Sumner (a.k.a Function) will release a new EP as LSD, titled Third Process, out February 17.

Third Process forms the third installment of the trio’s Process series, and follows two double packs on Ostgut Ton and the first release on their self-titled LSD imprint last year.

We’re told to expect “a fierce three-track techno pack,” with futuristic drum programming and mind-melting melodies “for maximum dancefloor impact.”

LSD focuses on the psychedelic aspects of techno while emphasizing the cross-pollination of each member’s style and rhythmic sensibility. The project’s seeds were planted during a mutual gig at the Moulin Rouge, Paris in July 2015 in support of Function’s Berghain 07 mix. There, the trio exchanged thoughts on a collaboration that would blur the line between DJing and live performance, with each member manipulating separate elements and tracks to unpredictably construct and deconstruct the whole.
