Another Knot 11. Lost and Found (Found Mix) PAN welcomes back Objekt for Cocoon Crush, his first LP since 2014’s Flatland. In Cocoon Crush, Objekt diverges further still from his musical influences to craft the purest manifestation of his own musical personality to date: an intriguing and enigmatic album whose reference points are hard to pin down, in which ghostly synth passages weave through mind-bending, weighty drums, and ASMR-triggering foley collages scrape and sparkle. Through meticulous sculpting, Objekt traces a rich and impressionistic journey through claustrophobia, hope, guilt, anxiety and joy, nested in layers of sonic detail which reward with every listen.

That’s metamorphosis, man - one day, you’re this fat little worm guy with like 30 stubby appendages crawling along on a leaf that you’re probably also eating, then you’re instinctively walling yourself up into a little slimy egg thing, and finally you re-emerge in your true form: beautiful, wings slick with goo, relatively lanky.
The two producers continue to offer up their own singular visions of electronic music’s future-Stingray with his propulsive, Detroit-inspired sonic warfare, and Objekt with hyper-textured, IDM-inspired renderings of contemporary club sounds. On a rare Red Light Radio set together, the duo serve up an hour of blistering, widescreen technoid atmospheres and slithering electro heat that’s sure to keep your headphones locked to your head until the end.

With his second album, Berlin’s TJ Hertz leaves techno behind in favor of hyperreal sound design charged with a narrative sensibility. by: Philip Sherburne. Objekt Shakes Up His Alien Techno in Secret Snake.
Even when Objekt runs through a peculiar and challenging experimental dip around the 50-minute mark - only to return to a blend of vibrant techno - it's done with so much precision and thought that it's fully woven into the mix. Kern Vol. 3 remains as the strongest entry in the young series, thanks to Objekt's vision and expert concern for quality control. Dance & Electronic.
Objekt - Flatland Like many impressive artists, TJ Hertz seems to rarely be impressed with himself. Take, for instance, his first records. All nine minutes and twenty-five seconds of Objekt's 'CLK Recovery' are thrilling," we wrote in our blurb for the A-side of Hertz's second EP, one of RA's top tracks of 2011. Hertz's debut album is stylistically unleashed in a way that makes his early records sound conservative. Like the curls of synthetic material on its cover, it's tangled and glossy, abstract but also weirdly tactile. On one hand it's so rich with detail that it can be hard to wrap your head around, but it's also generous to the listener, delivering at every turn.
