Sometimes, you have a sparking idea, a thought which takes
shape within seconds. This is exactly what happened when I
received a demo by Patlac in spring 2017. The year before, we
had signed the lovely „Random Walks“ for our summer
compilation „BBQ Techno 6“, so we were already in touch,
but what we received from him this time was different,
advanced and something we could not resist. A selection of
titles, all of them as though they had been made to stay
together and a blueprint for our Livingroom Techno sound
idea. It was clear for me right from the start, that the next
Livingroom Techno would not be a compilation, but an album,
our frst Livingroom Techno album.

Over the past months, we have refned the idea and more
titles were added to get what we have today: „Blinded“ -
probably the most homogenous album we have ever released.
„Blinded“ is a love letter, describing the feeling of Patlac’s
hometown, the city of Hamburg, or better said the metro line
U3, Hamburg’s oldest city line and the train which takes Patlac
to his studio every day. The ringline with a gap, which goes
overground most of the time and passes impressive scenarios
including the Landungsbrücken, Elbphilharmonie or the green
area of Winterhude had a huge infuence on the tracks and
set the mood Patlac wanted to create with this album.

On the way to his studio and back, Patlac listened to the
resulting tracks and loops via his phone over and over again. It
was his musical companion while looking out the window,
watching the city go by, analysing the changing light situation
from winter to summer, from day to night, cut off only by the
blinding refections of the passing silver metallic trains or the
city lights, forcing him to gently close his eyes, creating an
almost meditative moment. All of this melted together to
become „Blinded“ - a journey, discovering deep and
sophisticated corners between the poles of house, techno and
electro. Music to dance to or simply to listen to, it is relaxed
and moving at the same time. A true Livingroom Techno

Hamburg-based photographer Katja Ruge sets the mood with
her contributed beautiful artwork photo, showing her blurred
and colourful interpretation of „Blinded“.

We hope you will enjoy this piece of music!
