Fusing improvisational chaos, serious technical chops and an insatiable urge to create very strange sounds, Chrononautz are making some of the most exciting and original techno, though their unrestrained music goes far beyond mere functionalism. Holding no truck with either over -produced sheen or lumpen functionality, Chrononautz display a sense of uninhibited raw dynamism that, when combined with an uncanny musical telepathy, also brings explosive results in whichever underground sweatbox they happen to attend to.

Associate of Berlin's Furanum Records, pretty much retired from techno nowadays. He will occasionally dust off rather impressive record collection, though and showcase an eclectic fusion of an old school, industrial or even funky sound. Once well recognised promoter and dj in Southern Poland, on a mission to introduce underground electronic music of '90s and '00s to as many as possible.
Sabes started his adventure with electronic music from mixing acid and hard techno. Later, influenced by industrial sound of '90s and music technology course, he produced a couple of albums that are best described as an energetic blend of blasting beats, complex sequencer patterns, unsettling samples and crushing power noise textures. His sound keeps evolving, and his recent explorations oscillate around a more polished techno soundscape with plenty of those industrial influences.

Here's a little mix from him to show you what to expect:
