Though a permanent fixture in discerning record bags, one of techno’s most distinctive voices has been only a fleeting presence in record shops and a virtual nonentity on the club circuit. This ultimate drifter, however, seems to be settling into some kind of limelight. Kicking off the year strong with the heavy-hitter “Nonneo” for Absurd’s Acid Test series, Tin Man shows no interest in letting up, with at least two more albums and tantalizing remixes slated for release. In advance of his appearance at The Bunker Unsound Edition in Brooklyn, LWE checked in with the man behind the mask, Johannes Auvinen, to find out what the heck we did to deserve this sudden bounty, why he won’t be settling into a multi-release deal anytime soon, and what sounds and places inform his inimitable body of work. He also contributed to LWE a mix of his own tracks that provides a jaw-dropping preview of his material.
