Man/Machine: Since their self titled debut album, Vienna’s Elektro Guzzi made an impact on the scene no one could have imagined. Being the first ever REAL techno live band, they took the scene by storm with their unparalleled stage appeal and future-forward sound. Rocking clubs like Berghain and Fabric as well as numerous festivals (including Sónar, Time Warp, Spring 10, ADE and Mutek), it was the headstart of 2010. Playing constantly live at countless gigs, plus live and studio appearances with Patrick Pulsinger and Stefan Goldmann, Elektro Guzzi’s music was set on fast forward evolution mode. “Extrakt EP” captures the latest state of Elektro Guzzi’s incredible live sound, recorded in London with the outstanding capabilities of Brendon ‘Octave’ Harding, the trusted engineer of dub legend Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and mixed by mega-producer Patrick Pulsinger. The four cuts capture Elektro Guzzi’s raw side, turning out dark sexy grooves with an almost indie edge - probably their most danceable and DJ friendly studio material to date - specifically produced for the vinyl format. This EP is the track-format warm up for Elektro Guzzi’s NEW LIVE ALBUM CD “Live P.A.", coming up in APRIL 2011 on MACRO! Live performances coming up at Mutek festival (Montreal), Berghain (Berlin), Electron festival (Geneva), Dancity festival (Foligno) and maaaaaaaany more!
