Minimal techno from Albert Dock

20140707_224141Liverpool, England.
The Albert Dock area has undergone a great deal of regeneration lately, and indeed the regeneration of Liverpool has been the subject of at least two of our reimagined sounds in the recent past.

Here, though, German sound artist Heiko Jay has selected the late-night, relaxed sounds of Albert Dock’s pier head when there are very few boats and very little life outside the natural, droning ambience of the place itself.

His subtle reimagining starts off with a speaker-threatening, menacing sub-bass drone that builds into a clicking drum track timed with the gently rolling waves, becoming a slice of subterranean dance music for fans of glitchy, Kompakt-style minimal techno.
