Boomkat Product Review:
Over the space of only a half dozen releases Max Loderbauer and Tobias Freund's Non Standard Institute has reached near mythical status, with their blend of analog beat workouts and next-level sound formations making for one of the most distinct and inspired sounds in electronic music circa 2008. This latest 4-tracker is quite possibly their best too, with long and effortlessly complex tracks taking you through the machinations of drum machines and sound effects slipping in and out of function to create a sound that's almost impossible to pin down. The long list of equipment used sheds little light on the many rewards this excellent record has to offer, but makes for a fun read nonetheless with things like the Doepfer a-100, sam-16, TR 808 and even a TR 909 borrowed from Dan Bell getting credit for the beautiful noises contained within. These twelves never last long - get on this baby while you can. Highly Recommended.
