In 2009 a series of five anonymously produced ink stamped vinyl recorded releases appeared in the global techno scene under the mysterious guise TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE. The series released exclusively on vinyl. The sound of TW is a unique signature of sci-fi laden techno music with gaps of time, space & bass in between sound & rhythm. Within a month’s time of its conception Volume 2 of the series appeared and a huge buzz was soon amassed on the project. Accusations on who was the artist behind the project ran wild. People all over the techno scene had made theories to who was behind it. The project quickly received huge support from many of the world’s most renowned techno shops such as Rub A Dub , Hardwax, Juno & Decks. Word traveled fast through the wormhole and it was soon reported that globally respected djs such as Chris Liebing, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Matthew Herbert, Ryan Elliot, Andrew Galluzi, Surgeon, Function, Frankie Bones, DJ Deep & Radioslave were all supporting the sound of TW. With the series fast approaching into further galaxies with the appearance of Vol 3 techno cult blogsite MNMLSSG tracked down TW via Twitter. A sonar ping was sent back to the popular blog and soon a TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE mix appeared anonymously on the site, receiving rave reviews. As the series transgressed to Vol 5 by the year end of 2009 the mystique of anonymity continued to grow.
To usher in the very start of 2010 TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE would release the sixth volume of the series. At the same time 20 year veteran techno artist/dj Adam X originally from NYC and now residing in Berlin would be invited to partake in a feature called PLAYING FAVORITES on Resident Advisor, the worlds biggest electronic music website. As Adam’s feature read towards the end he would subtly take claim as the producer behind TW.
While traversing the wormhole, Adam has crossed paths with Chris Liebing and his CLR imprint. In Summer 2010 CLR released TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE VOL. 1-5 in digital format for the first time ever with all five volumes being digitally remastered in the highest of quality. TW has found itself remixed from some of the best in the scene: Surgeon, Marcel Dettmann, Sleeparchive, Function, Chris Liebing, James Ruskin, Peter Van Hoesen, Terence Fixmer, Kevin Gorman, Tommy Four Seven & Brian Sanhaji.
A mix CD put together by Adam X and compiling Volume 1-5 was published in 2010.
Traversable Wormhole continued to release TW6-10. Then in 2012 came another Mix CD released by CLR.
In addition to the mix CD, Adam X decided to have the Sonic Groove family remix TW tracks from the last EPs and put this special blue vinyl edition out on his own. The EP includes: Worldline (Orphx Remix),
The Wormhole Nexus (Monolith Remix), Subliminal Warp Drive (Northern Structures Remix) and
Universal Time (Dasha Rush Remix)
After that transition was lost lost...
In 2016, after a four year silence while traveling through the galaxies, TW returned with two new sound transmissions signaled back to earth. SUBLIGHT VELOCITIES & SEMICLASSICAL GRAVITY are released in vinyl format on Hospital Productions and digitally as TW11.
