We don’t know a lot about Anstam. No one does. That’s part of the appeal. Here’s what we do know: Anstam is a duo. They're responsible for a now legendary trilogy of 12″ releases in 2007-9 – ‘Brom’, ‘Aeto’ and ‘Cree’ – that assimilated the hardest, most dystopian flavours of dubstep, grime and junglism into a disciplined, techno-savvy framework that betrays their Berlin provenance. They recently re-emerged with a devastating new track, Albert’ – featured on a split 10″ with Phon.o for Modeselektor’s Fifty Weapons imprint.
FACT mix 246 maps out the Anstam genome patiently and comprehensively. What’s the common thread linking this music? Well, in the main it’s moody-as-fuck music for soundsystem heads; cerebral and investigative but invariably packing a ruff punch. We’re tremendously excited to be able to share this exclusive mix from Anstam with you - electronic music doesn’t get much more vital or visceral. And hell, it’s worth it just to hear the breakdown on ‘Metropolis' again.
