Victoriaville Records represents the Berlin based music label launched in 2009 and run by Stefan Goldmann.

Techno and house have always been about imagining the future and feeling the excitement of change. If anyone has lived up to this aspiration in recent years, this is Stefan Goldmann. With almost every new single and project he has brought a new edge to the table, creating some of the most memorable tracks of recent years. The dirt of “The Maze”, the melodic craze of “Sleepy Hollow” or the off-center choirs of “Lunatic Fringe” have injected new excitement into dancefloors and shown new directions to DJs and producers alike.

Stefan Goldmann’s MACRO label has been called “the leading avant-techno label”, so it is no wonder he has crossed over massively into art music too with an approach that is so essentially techno. Creating special one-off live shows for festivals and institutions has become as much part of his presentation as DJing in clubs or at Macro label nights in Berlin, London, Paris and Tokyo alongside label mates like KiNK, Elektro Guzzi, Peter Kruder or Raudive. For Berlin’s Berghain club he has conceived the Elektroakustischer Salon nights, writes a bi-monthly column for the club’s program flyer and can be seen DJing at the legendary Sunday afternoon sessions at Panorama Bar.

The first release on Victoriaville is from the owner himself with ‘’ART OF SORROW``: And the hits keep on coming. Stefan Goldmann continues his excellent run of productions with this 12-inch for his brand spanking new Victoriaville imprint. It's unclear why Goldmann wanted to put this particular release on here instead of Macro, but we're not complaining as these two tracks are yet another example of his inimitable and compelling talent.

"Art of Sorrow" is dark and cinematic with a busy bassline that underlines its ominous groove. The major piece of action, however, is the blast of strings and organ that ring out every so often to announce the arrival of something new—the kick, the modulating bassline, your brain melting all over the floor. Like much of Goldmann's work, there's a sense of menace throughout. And it's this anticipation that sets Goldmann apart from 99.9% of producers working today in techno. Who else aside from Ricardo Villalobos or Bruno Pronsato do you listen to and actually have no idea where each track is going to lead?

It's hard to believe, for instance, that we'd hear Goldmann trying on dubstep for size. But "Radar Opaque" doesn't sound much like 2562, Martyn or Skream. Probably the closest comparison? T++, whose similarly unpredictable compositions may hit the right tempo and beat structure for the genre, but do everything else differently. It's a brutal work, as muscular as any dubstep tune you'll ever hear. It's unclear when "Radar Opaque" was made, but like everything he produces of late, it's pretty much timeless.
