Boomkat Product Review:
Uwe Schmidt picks up where his acclaimed 'HD' album left us, presenting closing track 'Ich bin meine Maschine' backed with techno remixes by himself, Boys Noize and Function. Apparently inspired by cybernetician Heinz Von Foerster, the original track plays on the meaning of Kraftwerk's oft-cited "Ich bin eine Maschine" quote, tweaking and reconstructing its vocoder timbres to say "I am my machine" against a backdrop of fluid, abstract electro-boogie. The remixes amp the dancefloor potential with deft, powerful results. Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize condenses the groove to a boulder-rolling techno groove, and Function serves the big rooms with a new anthem in his exemplary 4/4 version. Funkiest of all is Atom TM's own Linear remix, feraking the vocoder vocal and reducing the groove with a super tight mix of Latin tuck and progressive, hi-tech German engineering.
