Zeitgeber ist das neue Project von Lucy (Stroboscopic Artefacts-Chef) und Speedy J (Electric Deluxe-Chef und Technolegende)
Zeitgeber is a German word that, loosely translated, means "synchronizer." It's also the new project of Electric Deluxe head Speedy J and Stroboscopic Artefacts' boss Lucy. Both artists make some of the most forward-thinking techno
around, but Zeitgeber sees them pushing together even further into uncharted territories. Freed of dancefloor considerations, the duo have constructed an album that breathes with life and rewards close listening. That's no surprise when you consider the artists involved. Speedy J has been around from techno's very beginnings. Based in Rotterdam, his Electric Deluxe label has consistently released techno that has gleefully tugged at the constraints of the genre. Lucy, on the other hand, is a newer name to most techno fans, but his Stroboscopic Artefacts label has quickly made a name for itself as one of the leading purveyors of the stuff. That's by design, however. Because when Zeitgeber do let the light in, it's all the brighter.
