Martin Gretschmann, aka Acid Pauli is getting ready for the release of his second album, 'BLD'.
The German producer has an impressive back catalogue of EPs which span back to 2005, and his debut album 'Mst' came out on Nicolas Jaar’s Clown and Sunset imprint in 2012.
The LP is dropping on March 24 via his label Ouïe and features eight tracks of intensely textured synth-laden electronica.
Pauli said: "My new album 'BLD' comes from an idea I've been carrying around for years, which was to mix a DJ set only consisting of techno and house breaks, the parts which lack the main beat, the kick drum. The result was to sound more like ambient, but it has a very unique thrill, thanks to these breaks always striving for the moment where the kick drum returns. The suspense is basically ramping up constantly.
"Nicolas Jaar was so stoked about the idea after I told him about it, that he said: 'Make an album out of it'. And that, in turn, convinced me."
