Ancient Methods Rec. represents the German Industrial/Techno label founded by Ancient Methods back in 2007.

Ancient Methods first emerged in 2007, dropping the first in what went on to become a series of self-released 12-inches. Since the German pair made their production debut, they've continued to lay down an aggressive and uncompromising brand of techno that recalls the likes of Richard Devine, British Murder Boys and Porter Ricks, all while regularly taking their menacing live show around Europe for festival slots. The Ancient Methods' live act is in line with the sound the majority of their releases have pushed: relatively slow and heavy on bass and distortion.

Formerly a two piece act, Ancient Methods is the current solo concern of a Berlin-based artist who has worked alongside Adam X, Kareem, Regis and whose music is similarly relentless in tone. Originally an Industrial/Techno duo of Conrad Protzmann & Michael Wollenhaupt aka Baeks & Trias, it is now a one man project with Michael Wollenhaupt since the duo have recently separated and Conrad Protzmann left the group.

Since middle 00′s Ancient Methods has released a bunch of internationally acclaimed records mainly on its own label (Ancient Methods) and RSB. Wollenhaupt has worked with such noticeable musicians as Adam X, Kareem, Regis.

It is possible to trace the sequence of AM releases to a gradual resurgence in the popularity of a certain type of techno, but to do so would only partially explain what the German duo are about. Like other producers, DJs and labels associated with a shift towards harder, purist sounds, AM take influence from the tough end of the '90s techno spectrum and there is a repetitive sensibility at play in each track. It would be wrong to presume that they share the exact same qualities of a loopy Klockworks record or the Jeff Mills-influenced atmospherics of Norman Nodge, though.

Granted, AM have a predilection for dense, metal-plated rhythms, but it usually just acts as a starting point.

* ** Ugandan Methods, a joint project by Ancient Methods and Regis, first surfaced in 2009 with Map Output - 1/2. Ugandan Methods presented a more spacious and less frenzied sound than Ancient Methods' previous showings, yet one that remained grounded in raw industrialism and throwback purism. Their most recent release largely sees that aesthetic continue over three tracks, each with its own distinct vision.
