Boomkat Product Review:
Over the last couple of years this has been one of the most requested and sorely-missed releases on CCO. Following The release of Herrmann and Kleine’s magnificent ‘Our Noise’ LP a couple of weeks back, ‘Transalpin’ is now finally repressed! On first release in 1999 the simplicity and unique joyous sound of H+K was yet to be discovered by countless followers of this inspired collaboration between Thaddi Herrmann and Christian Kleine. A gentle, playful hybrid of slightly distorted breakbeats and delicate electronic sounds that formed the setting for so much of what was to follow not only within both artist’s own work, but within that of the scene as a whole. In short : electronic pop music at its most inspired.
