What better way to sign off on celebrating 20 years together as a duo than to release a brand new album – Pan-Pot’s third studio album ‘FORTE’ recently arrived via their own Second State imprint, and it’s some of their best work outright. Since coming together in the early 00’s, the Berlin-based pair have released their music on some of club music’s finest record labels, including Mobilee Records, Watergate Records, and Bedrock. Since launching Second State back in 2014, they’ve risen


to the forefront of the European techno circuit, and have championed tracks from heavyweights like Amelie Lens, Gary Beck, and Harvey McKay. ‘FORTE’ does everything you would expect from a Pan-Pot album, and then some, holding techno at its core, the record also dips its toe into rave, acid, and trance sounds in places, and brings an unflawed production quality that keeps the energy going strong from start to finish.

Where to start:
UTOPIA: Trance meets techno in the best way possible
NOVA: Rave-tinged techno track with massive synths
ARC: Dense, rolling basslines and trippy vocal work
