We welcome back the Cologne artist of excellence André Kraml.
After his Cosmic Sandwich remix on MBF, his legendary track “Safari” and many electronic releases on the Cologne label Firm, he has returned with a real dance floor churner.
Spiced with samples and effects he assembled through his work for cinema sound track production, this deep and heavy pounding piece of deep techno is a unique one.
With his a-side track “Black Water” André makes the connection to psychedelica as well as dropping a melodic sequence similar to Derrick May's “Strings of Life” in the middle of the track engulfing later in to a radiant Krautrock synthscape... this track is an amazing experience.
“Koerbchen” is a short episode like funk track we would expect rather from Dirtybird Christian Martin than from a Cologne musician. Well done!
“Der Springende Punkt” could be described as a meditative techno track if there was not André's liking for deep techno and mighty production.
Mexican artist Pinto has reworked “Black Water“ into a heavy“ beat freak that is very much in tune with the tracks on this 12”.
Additionally Patrick Lindsey delivers a stunning remix of "Black Water" when he puts the jack in the box and changes perspectives constantly. Jack is back as we say!
And new discovery at Traum ThermalBear has done a rework of “Der Springende Punkt” which actually turns out to be quite a track on its own.
With this remix he has created a clubby remix for Trapez, a night crawler, bassline driven, with dark sounding strings and a hell of a punchy beat, it is the most advanced and new school sounding in the track list of this EP.
