Berlin-based French musician David Letellier, aka Kangding Ray, played in bands as a guitarist and drummer prior to taking up production of electronic music.
His debut album for Raster-Noton, Stabil (2006), was a sharp, glitchy set that incorporated acoustic and sampled-and-looped elements. Its 2008 follow-up, Automne Fold, was markedly more song-oriented -- a potential gateway into the Raster-Noton label's less traditionally accessible releases. The 2010 EP Pruitt Igoe, which featured remixes by Alva Noto and Ben Frost, found him sculpting his broken, distorted rhythms into something closer to danceable, and the 2011 full-length OR was a masterful blend of club rhythms and chilling post-industrial atmospheres. In 2012, Kangding Ray began releasing material on the Berlin-based Stroboscopic Artefacts label (the explosive Monad XI EP and a split 12" with Pfirter), as well as a more streamlined techno 12" for Raster-Noton called The Pentaki Slopes. Another Stroboscopic EP, Tempered Inmid, appeared in 2013. His fourth full-length, a diverse set of tracks called Solens Arc, was released by Raster-Noton in 2014, followed by Cory Arcane in 2015. In 2017, Stroboscopic released his album Hyper Opal Mantis. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
