Rawtekk are a duo hailing from Hamburg who have carved out a niche for themselves making music which takes in elements of d&b, wave, idm, pop and dubstep with a surreal yet sophisticated edge. Otherwise known as Stefan and Christine Westphal the pair joined forces in 2011, bringing Stefan’s production expertise in experimental electronica, minimal techno and dnb together with Christine’s singing and songwriting skills.
Rawtekk have made a name for themselves in the scene through their releases on labels such as Subtitles, their previous release on Med School’s “New Blood 011″ album – “Snowflakes” and their close work with Phace. Their recent remix of Neosignal – “Angst” put them in the spotlight before they signed to Med School in Spring 2013.
Outside of producing tracks, they also specialize in producing commercial spots, soundlogos, imagefilms and they are developing sample libraries and demo songs for Steinberg’s Cubase, Halion, Halion Sonic and Sequel 1-3. In 2011 they received the award for the best commercial music in Germany (for this HERE).
In 2013, Rawtekk unleashed their debut album“Sprouted and Formed” on Med School which effortlessly combines precision engineering with elegant song-writing sensibilities. As we look to the future, the duo are busying themselves with their magical live show and there’s plenty more in the pipeline.
Fall deep down the rabbit hole with Rawtekk's 'Here's To Them' LP, a fascinating blend of innovative sound-scapes and twisted dance floor compositions.
Boasting years of experience in the world of professional sound design, Rawtekk's latest creation is a sonic masterpiece - a flawless follow-up to their stunning debut release on Med School back in 2013.
Opening track, ‘The Hatch’, offers the rawest of introductions as Rawtekk welcome you to their world. A swarm of disorder lets rip in ‘Here’s To Them’, chainsaw synths and head-banging chaos in ‘Harbour’ and tear-out, neuro drum-drillings fill ‘Extinction’.
Take a breath with the contrasting tranquility of ‘K.I.A.’, get gripped by the hauntingly delicate, ‘My Love’, and drift away with the wonderland whisperings of ‘Restless’, layered over a rumbling bassline.
‘Here’s To Them’ is spider-web of electronic exploration, delivering a sinister, cinematic experience that is guaranteed to inspire the darker side of the imagination.
