Having established a firm reputation for creating standout productions Pleasurekraft’s musical evolution has moved towards a much tougher, atmospheric blend of melodic techno in recent years, comprised of big room drums, soaring breaks, and smart, unpredictable vocals. This self-dubbed ‚cosmic techno‘ sound has garnered support from a range of techno heavyweights, including Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Nicole Moudaber and many more.
The debut album „Friends, Lovers, & Other Constellations“ was released on Feb 23, 2018 on Kraftek Music, featuring 11 originals predominantly showcasing this ‚cosmic techno‘ sound.
The mission statement for the album: to prove that there is more to dance music than just a 4/4 beat, cliche drug references, and party themed vocals. The tracks range from political themes like on „Corpse Reviver #1“ & „Gospel of Doubt“ featuring Casey Gerald, to cosmic exploration as on „Lagrange Point“ to more existential subject matter on records like „Interiors“ & „Last Transmission (From a Dying Constellation).“
