POLE — Boston debut!
May 2, 2012
POLE (aka Stefan Betke) is one of the most important and influential electronic music producers of the last 15 years. His first three albums ("1", "2", & "3"), released from 1998 to 2000 and packaged in monochromatic blue, red, and yellow sleeves, are classics of abstract dub techno, marrying fantastically deep bass with crispy crackles and pops. In 2011, after an extended period of relative quiet, Betke released a beautiful pair of new Pole 12"s, "Waldgeschichten" 1 & 2, that marked a return (with subtle variations) to the original Pole formula. A new album is due out in 2012. Amazingly, his performance at the Goethe-Institut will mark his Boston debut!
