Martin Maischein and David Foster resurrect their cult techno project Teste to present a fresh 2xLP on L.I.E.S through an unusual concept, a truly stirring journey to the unique world of harsh noises. Industrial atmosphere at its best.
Teste was still-born in the early nineties in Hamilton. One of their most prominent tracks from these times was “The Wipe” released in 1992 and served as a template for the ensuing sonics of contemporary techno.
All of the tracks on this release are sourced from decaying tapes (VHS, 4-track, DAT, MD) some of which were encoded to early digital formats to add another layer of artefacts and grit.
