Boomkat Product Review:
Stunning new release by To Rococo Rot member Stefan Schneider after his highly acclaimed solo debut on London's Soul Static Sound label in February this year. Engineered and coproduced by Bernd Jestram (Tarwater), and mastered by Bo Kondren (Calyx Desktop), the sound of 'Sleep, Engine Sleep' has already moved-on from its predecessor. Gone is the fixation with cold, almost machine-like interpretations of minimalism. Instead, the sound of Mapstation has been infused with Warmth, fuzz, pulsating rhythms and above all intimate melodies that retain a unique ambience and contain a kind of crack-dub that would not have sounded out of place on the recent Scape sampler. Very nice indeed.
