Conversation around the Field usually begins with From Here We Go Sublime. Axel Willner’s 2007 debut still holds up, and it’s something of a high-water mark for minimal techno’s mainstream appeal—a balmy, slyly melodic spin on what’s often standoffish music, it garnered praise from the music press and earned him festival slots the world over. The Swedish producer’s recent music is more aggressive and less immediate, drawing from his background in punk and drone by delving into darker sounds and live-band arrangements. Last year’s Infinite Moment is among his best work.
