Boomkat Product Review:
Features: Peter Grummich, Markus Guentner, Wolfgang Voigt as All, Klimek, Jorg Bürger as Triola and Ulf Lohmann. Klimek's underestimate at your peril, latest gorgeous twelve "Milk and Honey" kicks off the CD of this latest armchair thriller from the Köln nerve centre of Kompakt, and its attendant host of lovely labels, party rockers and deckchair worrying chilled ambient. Actually, Kompakt's year end, year beginning compilations always seem to benchmark the no beats scene, like a good afternoon reasoning in a hammock. This is simply delightful stuff, All's subtle rhythm under "Alltag 5" lending a certain edgy dynamic to the chilled stasis of the drift atop it. We've waxed lyrical and at length about Markus Guentner and Ulf Lohmann's work in these pages before, and when tunes this good are coming out with pleasing regularity, bliss is in the house. Triola has the same harmonic melodic envelope of sound, but carrying an immanent expectancy which seems to characterise this always excellent series. Looking good for the nineteen naughtythree, with more zing than bling.
