Wunderblock is an experimental techno project from Moscow, Russia. Three masterminds met up to create something new, all adding their different spice to the soup. Michael Teploff is known from the late 90's for his Ill Doggy project (Salo Records, Berlin), and as one half of Multipliar (together with Anton Kubikov a.k.a. SCSI-9 on the infamous Cologne imprint Trapez). In 2008 Michael has teamed up with producers Igor Ivanov and Vladimir Kochenov to push his own limits.
The result coming out of this creative pool is not only proof of outstanding handicraft skills, but also the combination of several disparate sources of influence, far beyond the expected techno heroes. Pioneer composers within art music as well as film scores and visual artists have all played an indirect role in forming Wunderblock sound - an eclectic mix of techno, house and dub with a touch of ambience and a jazzy feel. The use of not only synths and drum-machines, but also live instruments like acoustic and electric guitars, live percussion and wind instruments, adds to the organic flavour.
In 2013 Wunderblock Records label was launched, and now it’s fully packed with high quality underground techno releases, vinyl [WRLTD] and digital [WR], that are supported by the top techno DJ’s worldwide. Now the label roster includes such producers and remixers as Synthek, Mas Teeveh, Deepbass, Takaaki Itoh, Brendon Moeller, Arnaud Le Texier, Hail Blk, Energun, Shkedul, Vertical Spectrum, Relic Radiation, Splinter [UA], Arcuation, Vegim, Corvum, Scam., Korben Nice, DE Vs. Troit, Beat Movement, Steam, Alex Schultz, and more.
After powerful debut at Berlin's legendary landmark Tresor Club, Wunderblock with their hyperintensive techno sets started to rock dancefloors in Europe. In 2016 the Label have launched the series of the Showcases, that began at Moscow's Konstruktor Club and at Berlin's Arena Club, with planned sequels in Italy and Georgia, and back in Moscow and Berlin.
