Function reveals sophomore album on Tresor in late November, ahead of Atonal premiere

by the partae
Made of recordings between 2016–2019, "Existenz" is a step away from the corporeal techno of the last years, as a reaction to traumas Function had during all his life. "Existenz" is about religion, sexuality, healing, and liberation. "Existenz" features collaborative tracks with house icon Robert Owens. "Existenz" is following Function solo album debut out via Ostgut Ton back in 2013, and an album in collaboration with Vatican Shadow via Hospital production in the following year.  Impressed by pop art, rave and gay scenes, and early memories of block-parties in New York, Function founded the seminal Infrastructure label back in 1998 and has been a regular collaborator with legends like Regis and Damon Wild, releasing also on their labels Downwards and Synewave since the early days. He is now collaborating with London's techno milestones Luke Slater and Steve Bicknell for their LSD project. Together with Regis and Silent Servant, Function is one of the founding members of the legendary Sandwell District collective.  Tresor just shared a video teaser of "Existenz" sourcing from New York's cable-television era of the '80/90s, and showcasing very short excerpts of the album in the background.
