Boomkat Product Review
**180g wax** Remastered reissue of a gorgeous 1981 solo flight by Dorothea Raukes, then member of Düsseldorf's Streetmark. The melodic and gently rhythmic appeal of 'Deutsche Wertarbeit' plays acutely at odds with the album's rather stern-looking typographic sleeve art and even the project's moniker itself. Emerging from a member of a fairly well-known prog/krautrock group at the time, it's actually quite poppy, especially in the burbling rhythms, hooks and vocoder vocals of 'Guten Abend, Leute', the beaming sequencer joy of 'Deutscher Wald' and the perfectly uplifting groove of 'Auf Engelsflügen', whilst the other parts tend towards a sort of skilled consolidation of the so-called Berlin and Düsseldorf schools of synth music with the pulsing beauty of 'Intercity Rheingold' and the expansive vision of 'Der große Atem', and 'Unter Tage' ascends celestial realms a la Jean Michel Jarre.
