Paul Ritch is a Parisian producer and DJ who has since 2006 been a prominent gear in the machine of techno and electronica. Ritch’s minimalistic approach to crafting deep, thought provoking electronic music is the key to his essence; yet the atmosphere he bestows is a surefire dance-floor sirens’ song. And this Friday we will hear him at the best Eastern European techno club!
With over thirty distinct releases appearing on a dozen different labels in the past decade, producer and DJ Paul Ritch has made a steady ascent to the top of the electronic music pyramid – a fact that is proven by his being one of the top 100 charting artists through Resident Advisor.
Ritch’s work has broken through thanks to a consistent quality of musicianship and – in his capacity as label curator for the Quartz label – an ability to easily connect with like minds. Ritch’s most recent “hot list” of favorite albums runs the gamut from Flying Lotus to Arca to Swans, providing a subtle hint as to his own wide range of production skills. Such a playlist suggests that Ritch is every bit as comfortable working with music of fine-grain detail and limitless tone color as he is painting from sparser, more mesmerizing swatches of sound – in this way, he is emblematic of electronic dance music’s shift away from the restrictions of “with-us-or-against-us”, “one-or-the-other” formal approaches like minimalism or progressivism, and towards a more versatile optimalism. With this attitude of acceptance towards “stretching out” and increasing sonic vocabulary in order to similarly increase the range of emotional and physical responses. His latest project, moniker Kaczmarek, comes with his new album named IIIIIIIIIIIIII, that will be released on October 30th via Ritch’s fresh imprint KCZMRK.
