Boomkat Product Review:
Opening your album with a field recording of woodpeckers isn't the most likely of statements from one of Europe's leading micro house producers, yet that's precisely how Heimische Gefilde kicks off. Sure enough, every other track here is a short interval piece featuring location recordings of various woodland sounds. When you combine this with the comedy sleeve featuring Mr Eulberg looking nerdy at his vintage mixing desk somewhere in a forest, you get the impression his tongue is firmly in his cheek. Any such notions are firmly dismissed by the wealth of impeccably constructed techno you get in between the more Bill Oddie-friendly moments though with deft productions like 'Klangteppichverleger Wolle' and 'Die Alpenstrandläufer Von Spiekeroog', both tracks demonstrating a remarkable degree of sophistication and subtlety as warped beats crown warm, lulling pads and the most essential and spare of melodies. That's not to say this man can't turn his hand to outright bangers when he wants to. Last seen on a Trapez Ltd. 12", 'Gasthoff "Zum Satten Bass"' sounds as monstrous as ever and with even greater depth, the Gabriel Ananda co-production 'Harzer Roller' is quite the tour de force.
