Deer - Derailleur main image

This track was released on an EP called ‘Track Delay’. The blurb for this EP goes:

“Ekwal's first release is a collection of 4 tracks by ‘Deer’ aka Martin Hirsch, featuring a blend of field recordings and experiments in techno and electro. While the first three tracks explore various aspects of the four-on-the-floor paradigm, the last cut, ‘Stationary’, features an excerpt from a living room livejam with Source Records founder ‘Move D’. The ‘Track Delay EP’ was mastered by John McCaig at PanicStudios, Seattle. Deer has previously released as ‘random noise productions’ on Neo Ouija and Hippocamp. His website can be found at http://www.regicide.org.”

Discogs comments:

“As ‘Deer’ Martin Hirsch produces freestyle, Detroit-influenced House and Techno which draws on found sounds, organic synths and engaging emotional tensions.

His focus is on groove and finely detailed fragments, trying to create an acoustic space that equally suits headphones and the dance floor.”

Hirsch is the German word for Deer, and Deer seems to largely perform in Eastern Germany - so my guess is that Martin Hirsch is German.

You can hear the track on last.fm - and download it if it catches your fancy.
