GAS

WRITTEN BY
Mike Powell

Wolfgang Voigt

Active from the middle of the '90s to the turn of the century, producer Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project was a blurry embrace between not-exactly-techno and not-exactly-ambient. Speaking in a heavy German accent at the Red Bull Music Academy in 2008, Voigt said that the aim of Gas was to combine "the idea of getting lost somewhere in the forest with no certain address...with the idea or the impression you might have when you go to dark techno clubs" — a blending of the organic and primitive with the man-made and futuristic that runs through almost everything Animal Collective has ever made, audio, visual or otherwise. Bonus: Voigt co-founded seminal minimal techno depot Kompakt, which put out one of of Panda's many singles leading up to Tomboy.
