We're back with the next edition of XLR8R+, and this one's curated by Patrick Gräser, better known as Answer Code Request.

Answer Code Request is a resident of Berghain and a signee to the club’s affiliated Ostgut label. In true Answer Code Request form, he headlines this edition with a dark slice of breaks-driven techno fresh from his Berlin studio—and his first new material since 2018’s Gens album.

To accompany him, Gräser has selected Ryan James Ford, a Berlin-based American; and Adlas, one of the most recent signees and a producer to keep your eyes on. Each track takes a small step away from the peak-time slots, with pad-driven harmonies and swirling synth lines, making for three slabs of cerebral if a little melancholic techno.

To accompany the release, Gräser has delivered an exclusive sample-pack containing sounds from his XLR8R+ contribution and a recent iteration of his live set. The pack features 30 samples that include kicks, bass, pads, atmospheres, and loops.

Artwork comes from Luca Christakopolous (a.k.a mesobroke).

Mastering is by Kamran Sadeghi.
