Boomkat Product Review:
Amsterdam electro specialist Interstellar Funk generates his debut album of hardware-hewn grooves and piquant melodies for Dekmantel
‘Into the Echo’ is an effortless yet studious distillation of Olf Van Elden aka Interstellar Funk’s electronic touchstones, from the spectrum of ‘80s synth-pop to Italo disco, library-like commercial experiments, and electro, proper. He capably takes on the album format’s potential for portraying widescreen feels and impressionistic narrative with ten parts that describe a journey from furtive noir in the uncannily titled ‘Moscow Ghost’, to Legowelt-like sonic fictional functions in the credit sequence of his closing title tune. Lissom electro like ‘Crystal Whispers’ leads into feathered FM synthesis on ‘Dreamers (Part 1)’, and puckered Lowlands disco noir in ‘Psycho Panner’ and ‘The Helium Queen’ rendered in full bodied form.
Icy scene setters such as ‘Northern Winds’ keep the story unpredictable, along with the oddity of ‘Octave Echoes’ which sounds like somethgin Stroom may have dug out from 30 years ago, and ‘Crickets At Night’ would appear to be a reworking of one of those recordings of crickets slowed 1000% to reveal their strange choral singsong.
