STL will make a welcome return to Echocord this May with a three-track EP called Take Your Seats.

Stephan Laubner, known to most as STL, is highly regarded for his unique twist on dubbed out house and techno sounds. He’s previously put out music on Smallville Records, Perlon, and his own Something, among others. He last appeared on Copenhagen’s Echocord with 2015’s Message Of Sound Parts 1 and 2, and also two other EPs that year. This will be his first release of 2019. 

“Lost Harbour” leads the package with textural field recordings, crunchy distorted rhythms, and an amalgamation of snaking bass and synth and piano lines “Mr Sinister” switches the vibes over to menacing bass swells, fluttering subs, gritty percussion, before “Sensimilla” edges into more ethereal territory with spiraling dub chords, shuffled hats, and winding atmospherics.
