Boomkat Product Review:
Move D (aka David Moufang) and Benjamin Brunn come across like some kind of minimal tag-team on 'Let's Call It A Day' - bringing their individual styles to bear on a collaboration that is neither clinical nor fussy. Meeting at Resource Studio in Heidelberg to record 'Let's Call It A Day', the pairing of Moufang and Brunn exist very much in the spaces between the machine's heartbeats - taking an evident cue from the tracing paper schematic of Raster Noton then feeding it through their own vision of stripped beauty. Ensuring that proceedings don't get mired down amongst insular clicks and edits, 'Let's Call It A Day' very much has it's eye on the overtly animated end of the genre - wherein the crystalline beats and pinprick compositions are bathed in rich chord structures that blur the potentially stark environs to pleasing effect. Allowing the dubby techno heritage to bubble throughout, opening track 'C-Sick' bounces around the speakers with necromantic intent - drawing in wisps of electronics and creased beats to form a whole that is energetic without breaking a sweat. Next up is 'On The Magic Bus', wherein any memories of vomit stained journeys through town on a decrepit double-decker are bleached clean by a crawling web of fidgety resonance and looped beats that install themselves deep within the cranium and refuse to leave. Very much ensuring a human touch is left throughout, Moufang and Brunn's fingerprints are clear to see - as the likes of 'Grains', 'A' and '?' temper the silicon with majestic and sprawling sun-set soundscapes. Detailed, grand and human to the core, 'Let's Call It A Day' proves just how intoxicating binary can be.
