soul center - General Eclectics
Soul Center is Thomas Brinkmann's fonkier alter-ego, a persona he's periodically revisited to unload his weirder inclinations since 1999. While experimental leaning, Soul Center tracks are keenly focussed on the groove, providing a more merry adjunct to more atmospheric and rigid releases under his own name. The giddy German shuffle of 'Walk With Me' from his Curle 12" is a big highlight here, also exemplifying the bandy strut found in the unstable tech-house of 'Hal2010', and really played out in the Billee Bob-esque hi-tek funk of 'Boot Box'. Keeping the vibes simmering, 'Don't Fake The Cake' is almost like a Smith 'N Hack exercise in disco funk edits while 'Pig Peg' also retains a strong sense of Detroit style perk reminding of a computerised Claude Young. The album closes on a run of more typical Shitkatapult fare, all stomping rocky-techno madness for the 'floor, but those other tracks are about as explicitly funky as it gets in German techno, and well worth your attention.
