Boomkat Product Review:
Few artists straddle techno and the avant-garde so capably as Stefan Goldmann. A revered producer, sound artist, DJ and curator, his work spans deconstructions of Fennesz beside records for Perlon, Cocoon, and Macro - the label he co-runs with Finn Johannsen - and with this in mind, his music invariably has a unique mixture of sound design and grooving function. '17.50' is his first solo album of house and techno variants in some four years and instinctively melds strange, outernational scales with infectious rhythm programming and electro-acoustic abstraction in a manner quite unlike any others. Over nine tracks his sonorities suggest a near eastern influence, from the curling melodies and tonal timbres, while the rhythms are rooted in traditions of Berlin and the wider German techno/house scene, from the harmonised distortion of opener '17.50' and the acrid, microtonal shuffle of 'Carrion Crow' to the percolating bob of 'Rigid Chain', via odd country & eastern timbres on 'The Outness Queens' to the Matthew Herbert-like kink and swing of 'Manila Grind', thru the killer dynamic syncopations of 'Adem' and the skewed melodic oddness of 'Kampong Pressure'. Ultimately it's a record that fans of everyone from Reinhold Friedl to Autechre, Villalobos and Accidental records can really appreciate, and there's not too many we can say that about.
