This XOpak is your VIP backdoor entrance to the sound of the underground techno club scene. Handcrafted by Berlin-based mastermind producer and sound designer ATEQ (Florian Lepa), it offers pure minimal techno and dub perfection, ready to spark inspiration and fuel your productions.

Raised in raves that - in true Berlin fashion - sometimes start on Friday and end on Monday, ATEQ knows clubbing is a marathon, not a sprint.

“pure minimal techno and dub perfection”

The same goes for his productions - it's hypnotic meditations on pummelling kick drums, textured snares, crisp hi-hats, and inspiring percussion, handcrafted and melded in pitch-perfect symbiosis.

"Sub Liminal" delivers transcending soundscapes paired with unique samples crafted from ATEQs organic and meticulous sound design process, where he lets his modular synthesizers and drum machines oscillate and blend into equally captivating and unique sounds.

Artist bio


ATEQ's love for electronic music started at an early age when he discovered Jean-Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk. Ever since he's explored the artistic outer rims of music creation and sound design.

The Berlin native (real name Florian Lepa) is somewhat of a "best kept secret" of the German capital's influential underground electronic scene, playing clubs, and releasing music via his own label "Pale Product". If you know ATEQ, you know.

His singular mix of techno, dub, and minimal electronic music draped in hypnotic, cinematic soundscapes creates visual worlds for the listener. Lepa draws inspiration from his background as a visual artist and the interaction and synergies created in audiovisual mediums.

He constantly chases happy accidents, letting modular synthesizers and drum machines react with one another, capturing the controlled chaos and later sifting out the gold. "This way, nothing is ever the same, and I can always find inspiration," he concludes.
