Boomkat Product Review:
2017 reissue on Scripted Realities, after previous editions on Independiente, and the original CCO.
Although Ulrich has released a considerable amount of tracks under a host of names and for a host of labels (some of them would really surprise you..if only you knew!), this is the first collection of tracks that Ulrich has felt strongly enough about to put his real name to. Having first heard the tracks that make up 'Passing Trains...' some months ago, we couldn't quite believe that Ulrich wasn't already a household name. This is one of those albums that touches everyone who's listened to it - simple, uplifting, reminiscent of a variety of things that you can't quite put your finger on. Names like Herrmann and Kleine, Boards of Canada, Arovane...all come to mind - influences, for sure, navigating Ulrich on course to creating one of the most complete and downright addictive electronic LP's we've heard in time on end. OK, so we're biased, but we'd really like you to share in this - old drumboxes, synths, breakbeats, so much warmth - the purest kind of innocent, almost naïve warmth, bright, sunniest sunshine. The word is, sure enough, starting to spread about Mr Schnauss....here's an invitation to find out for yourself what all the fuss is gonna be about.
