The two longest tracks »Shift« (13:15) and »Wellen« (14:49) hi-light simultaneous the main points of the new Produkt-CD Stretch. While »Shift« picks up the thread of the slow-mo techno tracks of the previous CD Float, the peaceful, almost melodic »Wellen« and »Stretch«, the electric and totally hypnotic titeltrack, enter a new musical direction for Produkt. Produkt has always stood for hypnosis, but this time everything is much more composed and concentrated than on its predecessor. This impression will be intensified through the short sound structures, which connect the tracks and remind us, that rastermusic is really made of two labels. The second label is noton, which is famous for totally unorthodox, avant garde sound creations. The label is named after the founder noto, who is causing a sensation in international avant-sound-circles and in »Shift« he also completes the members of Produkt.
