Boomkat Product Review:
For the fiftieth release on her all conquering Berlin label, Ellen returns to home base with Paul Kalkbrenner, who has recorded with the label right from its inception. Paul knows his way around, the title cut loops up a miasma of keys, sustained over an upful chugging feelgood techno riddim. "Vineta" touches a more sublime nerve, fingerclicks, again the looping feel, but a more balearic feel pervades, with mouth watering strings, building up to a crispy but far from gung ho release. "Dampf" employs backwards cymbals and a minimal house rhythm until mighty sub bass makes its presence felt in no uncertain terms. All set up then for the mighty off kilter shuffletime of "Salz and Pfeffer", an indirect homage to TNT period Tortoise, and a severe tester with its raggamuffin beats and two stepping riddim. Bpitch are set to go supernova, and Kalkbrenner is definitely on board.
