Image: 1582184 This is an extremely limited product packaged in a clear PVC sleeve. Contains a hand-numbered single piece 12” vinyl LP featuring 8 tracks, together with the full 13-track CD album and an exclusive 12” print of the album artwork as created by acclaimed Russian illustrator Igor Yanovsky.

“Sprouted and Formed” is the inaugural album from enthralling electronic duo Rawtekk. Hailing from Hamburg in Germany, Rawtekk initially caught the attention of Med School with the sublime “Snowflakes” which features on the 2011 edition of the label’s popular “New Blood” compilation series, and they have also released on labels such as Subtitles and Noisia’s Division Recordings and collaborated with fellow Hamburg resident and close friend Phace (Neosignal).

Fast forward to 2013 and Stefan and Christine return to Med School with their first ever full-length long-player which effortlessly combines precision engineering with elegant song-writing sensibilities.

Kicking things off, “A Magnanimous Kind’s Will” is a beautiful, dreamy utterance with a distinctive take on dubstep. This is followed up by introspective drum & bass cut “Photone Recruits”, which appeared on Hospital’s summer “Hospitality 2013” compilation and the excellent “No More Vaccine”. The eerie melancholy of “Anywhere” rounds things off on the side A.

Flipping over and we have another collection of beauties, first the intruiging “Halo” and “Working Man”. Next we have gnarly D&B number “To Be A Space Monkey” and last but not least the spaced-out beatless melodies of “Ventricle”.

“Sprouted and Formed” is a captivating story told through a range of soundscapes and emotions… profound and haunting, surreal and cinematic, brutish yet sensitive, bringing together complexity and simplicity.

Rawtekk will be presenting “Sprouted & Formed” live at Fabric in London on Friday 5th July. For more info head to or
