Born in Hannover and formerly a hip-hop producer, the mysterious Vril first surfaced in 2010 with an EP of boomed-out dub techno that inaugurated Giegling's now defunct Staub series label and tickled the fancy of Herr Dettmann who licensed "V3? for an appearance on his 2011 Conducted mix for Music Man. Last year's Flux EP for Semantica meant Vril was one of the few artists integral to Giegling that has appeared on a label outside of the Weimar-based operation, and the producer's dalliances further afield will continue with the Vortekz EP for Delsin. The three-track EP arrives hot on the heels of Delsin's 100th release celebrations and sees the label start 2014 with a bang. Amusingly, Delsin have revealed that Vril's material caused some of the expensive mastering equipment at that "well known mastering company in Germany" to crash during the mastering sessions - the first such instance in over 20 years of business.
