Boomkat Product Review:
Excellent debut EP of mesmerising, driven hardware jams by Farbwechsel boss S. Olbricht and his buddy Alpár. The 'Silf' EP is much cleaner and more charming than the last we heard from Olbricht on his 'Deutsche Amerikanische Tragödie' for Opal Tapes. Perhaps that's due to the influence of Alpár or maybe he just got some tape head cleaner - we're not sure - but these tracks are far more suitable for club use. There's still a ferric fuzz, but it doesn't dominate proceedings as much, instead providing a buoyant cushion for the acidic lattice and thrumming, skyward incline of 'Satellite Phone Blinks Red Light', and a lending a hazy aura to the bright arpeggios and rolling drums of 'Asian and Mexican Billioners (Fast version)'. Best of all is the rugged jakk trakk, 'Shadows On White Limestone Monuments', which stands up next to any of L.I.E.S of Bunker's baddest rogue machine jams, and also appears as shiftier, moodier Route 8 remix beside the Tevo Howard-esque 'A Naked Woman Presenting Her Rear To A Muscled Biker (with Jacques Beurlet Électroniques Bande)', and the sultry tuck 'n shuffle of 'Puerto Rican Erotica'. Recommended!
