Lorenz Brunner, aka Recondite, is a producer of lean but intricate and melodic techno who hails from Rottal-Inn, a rural district in Bavaria. He debuted with a 12", limited to 200 copies, in February 2011 on his own Plangent label. Two additional EPs came later that year. After a fourth EP the following August, he issued "DRGN" on Scuba's Hotflush label. Brunner's 2012 was relatively quiet, though it was the year he released his first album, On Acid, for Acid Test. His active 2013 involved short-form releases for Dystopian, Midnight Shift, and Trolldans, as well as Ghostly International, where the album Hinterland -- his deepest, most emotional work to that point in his career -- was issued that November.
