Boomkat Product Review:
The German Techno legend also known as Soylent Green, Eight Miles High and Alter Ego presents the very first album under his own name. It's surprising considering he's been doing this for over 15 years now, but the finely stripped rhythms and emotive clarity throughout 'Fatty Folders' perhaps best represent his personal conception of House and Techno most accurately, and befitting of his birth name. It includes tracks form both of last years slick singles for Dial, opening with the elegant glide of 'How To Spread Lies' and closing to gorgeous melancholy of 'Piano Piano' and also touching on the kinky bump 'n shake of 'Bahia Blues Bootcamp'. Among the eight new tracks, we find sophisticated highlights in the rugged boogie of 'Deo' and the heart-melting kosmiche flutters of 'Krautus' or the effervescent electronic melodies of 'Softice', all drawing the finest silver thread between mercurial Latin shimmy, classic German electronics and American House; the cornerstones of his aesthetic. A very warm recommendation to lovers of quality modern House music.
