The Berlin techno stalwart blends hard-edged contemporary techno and avant-garde sonics, from Bjarki to Eartheater.

The Romanian-born, Berlin-based producer Cosmin TRG creates ghostly techno that fuses shuffling drums with eerie synths, snatching bits of vocals-as-instruments and strains of Detroit and Chicago classicism. Recent years have seen Cosmin TRG’s sound in a state of constant flux, with releases on labels like Tempa, Hemlock, Hotflush, Rush Hour and Modeselektor’s 50WEAPONS. Although they say certain styles of music are native to certain cities, this Academy alumnus proves otherwise — his music draws distant parallels with ’90s Warp, ’00s London and the thundering sounds of contemporary Berlin.
