Boomkat Product Review:
Florian Meyer aka Don’t DJ back on the 3rd foot for BH, following up the Musique Acephale LP and interim aces such as the wicked Paradon’t hook-up and slingshots for EM Records, Fullfridge Music, with two devilishly polymetric steppers.
Like all of Don’t DJ’s music, Wiederganger stands far out from he crowd thanks to its totally unique meter, which comes as close as any to meshing the complex intricacies of traditional African tribal percussion into grid-locked electronic music. Basically this guy has some sort of skeleton key that unlocks any beat he touches, and this fluid hydroelectric stepper is just one sterling example.
Zwischending on the flipped takes a subtler approach with finely calculated hi-hat/rimshot on a steady bumping bass. It’s electro-house in effect, but with a pendulous gait and peppered with micro shimmies that you won’t find in 99% of records you’d also call electro-house.
