“What happens when you bring together two percussionists who are well-established in the electronic music scene and commission them to produce four tracks exclusively with percussion instruments – with the only requirement being not to deliver any overtly thought-out nerd music? The answer has been provided by Sven Kacirek and Thomas Klein on this SELEKT release.
Thomas Klein, drummer of the band KREIDLER and solo artists under the moniker SØLYST, and Sven Kacirek, solo artist and "collaborator" with Nils Frahm, Stefan Schneider and others, are two percussionists who are well-established in the electronic music scene. On the third release of our SELEKT series they present four tracks exclusively with percussion instruments.
Although the two musicians each speak their own distinct rhythmic language, with only a few data transfers between Hamburg and Düsseldorf they have conjured up four compact tracks, which despite the instrumental limitations are surprisingly diverse in terms of sound, groove and depth.”
