Boomkat Product Review:
Monkeytown’s Gajek feeds forward the free musik spirit of Berlin ’71 into ’17, a roving sophomore album that sublimates rave tropes along etheric, kosmiche and mercurial noise vectors following his debut, Restless Shapes . Check for highlights in the polymetric roil of Das Ewige Fest and the bestial abstraction entitled Vom Hammel.
“Moving through polyphonic pulses, layers of grooves and sounds, zooming in and out of ever evolving patterns of concentration and decomposition, the ten tracks of Gajek's '17 are electrifyingly futuristic clubmusic true to the almost five decades old motto of Berlin's Zodiak Free Arts Lab: „Total freie Musik“ - totally free music. Paying tribute to electronic pioneers like Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Florian Fricke - while staying clear of historical mystification - Gajek revisits the abstract clarity and improvisational audacity of 1970s electronics from a perspective firmly rooted in the digital now – this is not '71. Today, motoric rhythms emerge and elapse from postdigital aural scapes, intense and sublime, linking the thermodynamic to the ephemeral. Beyond the echoes of past utopias, '17 discovers present signs for possible tomorrows.”
