Boomkat Product Review:
It's been some time since we've heard from Ekkehard Ehlers - well, six years since his last proper solo album, anyway - and it's good to have him back. Still best remembered for his magnificent 'Plays' series, this new set, entitled Adikia, isn't quite as exuberant as those iconic records, though the first three or four tracks of forensically detailed clicks and cuts eventually give way to the swelling, almost Arthur Russell-esque chamber orchestration of '5' and the tortured '7', which sounds like a lonely, wine-sozzled opera singer crying into his cold pasta, lamenting the wife that's left him ('8' sounds like the same sorry figure captured four torrid hours later). The more you listen to Adikia, the more you're reminded what a unique talent Ehlers is - this is music that hovers elegantly between the realms of avant-garde electronics and modern classical without falling prey to the cliches or generic gestures associated with either; and unlike so much of the music that it's doomed to be filed alongside, this stuff has energy and animus and pain to it - it gets right under your skin.
