OAKE is emerging Berlin duo Eric Goldstein and Konstanze Bathseba Zippora, who together alchemize their own variant of dark, atmospheric techno inspired by British post-Industrial acts and the occult.
OAKE’s ominous, decaying soundscapes are cut through with stuttering, hypnotic percussion and sibylline vocals. Their debut EP Offenbarung was released on Downwards in April 2013 and followed later that year was a second 12" Vollstreckung. In December 2014, the duo unleashed their first full length LP Auferstehung ("resurrection") on Downwards.
Auferstehung has been received as a grand and mysterious work of art, despite working in an industrial lineage, it also "recalls the ethereal beauty of Cocteau Twins or Julee Cruise's work for David Lynch much thanks to Bathseba's otherworldly vocals, resulting in a dense, atmospheric album of real cinematic tension, one that leaves you painting the scenery in your mind (RA review).”
