moebius & beerbohm - Double Cut
Remastered from the original tapes, Double Cut is the second album by electronic music legend Dieter Moebius and bassist Gerd Beerbohm, originally released in 1984. For this collection of recordings, the two musicians honed in on the most elemental aspects of their music - in particular its rhythmic constituents. From our current historical vantage point it's not too hard to think of Double Cut as a premonition of what was to yet come in the field of electronic music. As the album develops through 'Narkose' and especially the twenty-two minute epic, 'Doppelschnitt', you get the sense that this is a form of proto-techno, exploring the minimalist rhythmic concerns that have defined the genre's most essential ingredients in all its incarnations, from Detroit to Finland to Berlin. Beginning with the dark, motorik autobahn sounds of 'Mnimotion', the album seems to become increasingly radical, and certainly, by the time 'Doppelschnitt' fires up it'll feel like you've been transported from 1984 right up into the 21st century. The vintage analogue synth edits that lend this 4/4 monolith detail are perhaps the only real indication that this isn't a contemporary work - it's quite a revelation.
