Used Parts Galaxy :: Pole (repeat) 20th Jul 2020

Pole, aka musician, producer and mastering engineer Stefan Betke, has released the remastered reissue of his debut album releases, 1, 2 and 3, collated as a box set and out now on Mute. Taking his name from a defective analogue Waldorf 4-Pole filter, the broken machine’s distinctive crackles gave Pole the starting point for his equally simple and subtle sound layers. Rhythmic textures and warmly pulsing bass lines join in play and from Pole 2, there’s a slow shift towards Minimal Dub. Our feature work on this edition, Pole II in full.
