German techno icon Steve Bug recently a new single named ‘Montafon’.
This new banger of his marked two decades of his renowned Poker Flat Recordings and establishing the newly formed Sublease Music label.
Now, Steve Bug has revealed the idea behind the track in his latest interview.
When asked about the inspiration behind this highly anticipated release, German techno maestro replied:
After my new studio was finally set up, I was hungry to write new music. In the past couple of years I haven’t been able to start even half as many tunes as I already have in 2021. Every now and then I open projects to see if I still dig it, and if I can finish what I’ve started.
I always felt that Montafon, even the early version of it, was a super strong tune. It did take a bit of time to finalize it, but I still think it’s a very strong tune. To find the right arrangement wasn’t easy, and I had to record the bass like 10 times until I thought it was right. The track reminds me of a long hiking trip in the Montafon area. It was a long, challenging hike, in a beautiful environment with more than one peak. But not sure anyone else can see it!
