Boomkat Product Review:
German jazz house unit Feindrehstar unload a full album for Musik Krause. Previous treats from their 'Knochenbrechers Ball' 12" are included, alongside a wide range of grooves cleverly blurring the distinctions between synthetic and organic, new and old. The electronic element adds the sort of dancefloor weight you need from a Musik Krause record while their skilled ensemble, consisting of brass, keys, drummers and guitars play with a consummate agility and colourful swing vibe nodding to everyone from Mulatu Astatke to the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. These ten tracks straddle broken beats, house, jazz and hiphop, and usually all at once. Fans of Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova should check.
