To celebrate their 20th anniversary, German techno duo Pan-Pot have announced their new project ‘FORTE’.
The long form selection of new music will be available on November 17, totalling in 10 originals. In the runup, a track will be released every two weeks, with this week’s announcement coinciding with the release of second single taken from the LP, ‘BOND’.
Taking a groovy approach to techno, ‘BOND’ blends swinging drums and shifting percussives with a lead organ and searing bassline to meander through peaks and troughts, accompanied by a loopy vocal hook.

Inclusive of ‘BOND’, each new track seeks to present individuality and tell their unique story with influence taken from Pan-Pot’s sound evolution over the years.
“‘FORTE’ – meaning strong – translates all the good and bad times we have had, in a way that reflects on our sound,” the duo explain. “It’s a journey of reflection, reinvention and inspiration from our travels around the world and the people we have met along the way.
“The tracks emulate the past, present, and future, in a range of styles, but most importantly they are all tracks which we love and enjoy playing,” they continue. “We wanted to create our own original music again, and this project has been long in the making to celebrate 20 years of Pan-Pot.”
