Boomkat Product Review:
1080i electro-pop genius from the indomitable Uwe Schmidt aka Atom ™. Veering sharp right from the resplendent neo-classicism of 'Winterresise' and the lobby vibes of 'Grand Blue', he's obviously having a lot of fun with 'HD', shaping up as some of the poppiest material since his last Señor Coconut outing. The sound design is, expectedly, second-to-none, but more importantly his playful sense of humour and knack for a choon are in full effect, whether he's taking on The Who's 'My Generation', or paying tribute to Prince with Jamie Lidell on the hyperfunky Linndrum flair of 'I Love U (Like I Love my Drum Machine)'. Elsewhere, there's the uncannily Kraftwerk-esque 'Strom', mental DSP blues on 'The Sound Of Decay', the major-label-bashing 'Stop (Imperialist Pop)', and a haul of class electro/house cuts such as 'Riding The Void' and 'Ich Bin Meine Maschine'. Sheer class, highly recommended.
