Boomkat Product Review:
Wolfgang Voigt has never been afraid to explore the outer reaches of techno, and ‘Kafkatrax’ (a collection of the three recent EPs also on Profan) is maybe his most peculiar record to date. Like ‘Freiland Klaviermusik’, you get the feeling that techno is simply Voigt’s framework, his canvas on which to express himself, and ‘Kafkatrax’ is the perfect example of his expression. The starting point was a series of recitations of the writings of Kafka, but after being chopped, treated and re-pitched they simply become gibberish chatter, unrecognizable from their source material. This background thrum proves to be the unifying theme from track to track, as Voigt layers his trademark stark 4/4 rhythms over clanging detuned hits and bubbling voices. I’m not going to say ‘Kafkatrax’ is an easy listen, but it is yet another beguiling and often confusing work from one of electronic music’s true originals. Listen, take your time and these tracks will slowly unravel – what might sound cold and uninviting can slowly become something undeniably arresting.
