Steve Rachmad aka Sterac talks ‘Secret Life of Machines’
STERAC aka Steve Rachmad has reached back to the first album 100% Pure ever released in 1995 – the classic milestone in the history of Detroit Techno ‘Secret Life of Machines’ and has given it a whole new lease of musical life for release this summer, complemented with a rollout of headliner remixes by Ricardo Villalobos, Joris Voorn, 2000 and One, Heiko Laux, Joel Mull, Christian Smith, Marc Romboy, Samuel L Session, Vince Watson, Klartraum and Nadja Lind.
A composition of nine beautifully sultry tracks from the melodic techno flow of ‘Axion’ to the sheer brilliance, beauty and soul of ‘Astronotes’ – each paving the way to the defining sound of ‘Secret Life of Machines’. The timelessness and delicious smoothness of Secret Life of Machines forged a path immediately in the Techno landscape. A path that now Sterac aka Steve Rachmad and 100% Pure have chosen to revisit, together with their remixing friends Ricardo Villalobos, Joris Voorn, 2000 and One, Heiko Laux, Joel Mull, Christian Smith, Marc Romboy, Samuel L Session, Vince Watson, Klartraum and Nadja Lind.
Now considered as one of the European fathers of Detroit Techno, Steve Rachmad adds ”It has to be classed as the most significant release of my career …until now that is… As 2000 and One said, ‘good things come in threes’, which is why we have decided to release this very special project in three phases – firstly my remakes of a selection of the originals, then my remixes and then a club class line-up of remixes’’.
