Pole - Fading
Pole is the project of ground-breaking electronic musician Stefan Betke. The new album 'Fading' is the first since 2015’s 'Wald'.
As with every new Pole record, it’s part of a continued forward trajectory but it also connects to a pre-existing sonic framework. “Every Pole record connects to recordings that I've made before,” Betke says, “in order to stay in this kind of vertical development.
The ideas from 1, 2, 3 up to now are connected. I keep the interesting elements, languages and vocabulary that I designed and add new elements.” Fading follows the physical released on Mute of remastered versions of his iconic albums 1, 2, 3 to much acclaim.
As Pole puts it: “My new music will sound very warm, has a lot of bass and stands in a strong relation to my musical history.”
As the next step in the evolution of a legendary producer, Stefan Betke founded a new artist label named “pole.” Made for the music of pole, this new imprint will keep Betke’s large back catalogue available, as well as give his forthcoming releases an autonomous structure for experimentation and creativity.
For over a decade, Stefan Betke has been working as a label owner, publisher and mastering engineer, contributing his experience to the development of electronic music. The artist label “pole” is intended to create a place where pole´s original and unique sound can be developed further, and combined with new production methods and ideas.
“My new music will sound very warm, has a lot of bass and stands in a strong relation to my musical history.”
