Boomkat Product Review:
Sublime solo side by the Berlin electronica stalwart and Moritz Von Oswald trio player. A dream of German synth and sequencer sophistication, 'Tranzparenz' is a timeless modern masterclass in reduction revelling in the purity of synthetic tone and studio discipline. After more than 20 years making electronic music - mostly in collaboration; Sun Electric (with Tom Thiel), MvO Trio, NSI (with Tobias Freund) and alongside Ricardo Villalobos for ECM - its the first time Loderbauer has assigned himself to a solo flight and we wish he'd done it sooner. These ten tracks are a sterling addition to the canon of classic German electronic composition, from the mournful beauty of 'Eleg' to the exhilarating Teutonic trance optimism of 'Jea' and the oily colour movements of his alien electro-acoustic soundscape, 'Kontur' or the hypnotic, phasing repetitions of 'Giant Hug' and 'Sseq'. The whole album should be mandatory listening for anyone on a headphone stroll thru Berlin. Highly recommended!
