The 10 Best Rhythm & Sound Tracks

Rhythm & Sound is one of several projects linked to the mysterious Berlin dub-techno duo Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus. They released a series of 10″ records on Burial Mix and 12″ records on Rhythm & Sound, both labels distributed by Hardwax.

Von Oswald and Ernestus’ Rhythm & Sound recordings are much more dub-influenced and less techno-orientated than the duo’s previous, and more legendary, dub-techno recordings as Basic Channel and Maurizio.

Where those earlier recordings synthesized a Detroit-influenced style of minimal techno with dub-reggae bass lines, the late-’90s Rhythm & Sound productions emphasized the dub-reggae aesthetic.

Here are our favourites from their outstanding discography, where the deep, FX-driven warmth of Jamaican dub meets the ice cold, machine patterns of techno.

  1. Maurizio is a project name. Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald are both behind this project. Maurizio is not Moritz von Oswald’s solo project.
