Biography

Astor Bell’s eastern outpost is Wunderblock, a collaboration project out of Moscow, Russia. Three masterminds met up to create something new, all adding their different spice to the soup. Michael Teploff is known for his Ill Doggy releases on Salo Records, Berlin and as one half of Multipliar (the other half being Anton Kubikov aka SCSI-9) on the infamous Cologne imprint Trapez. Here he has teamed up with ambient producer Igor Ivanov and local DJ Vladimir Kochenov to push his own limits.

The result coming out of this creative pool is not only proof of outstanding handicraft skills, but also the combination of several disparate sources of influence, far beyond the expected minimal heroes. Pioneer composers within art music as well as film scores and visual artists have all played an indirect role in forming the Wunderblock sound - an eclectic mix of minimal techno, house and dub with a touch of ambience and a jazzy feel. The use of not only synths and drum-machines, but also live instruments like acoustic and electric guitars, live percussion and wind instruments, adds to the organic flavour.

Wunderblock released their debut EP Act! here on Astor Bell and are currently working on a full length album and preparing their live performance.
