Product Description

A sublime collection of music, the 2003 CD by Richard Dorfmeister & Rupert Huber is full of uptempo beats with a downtempo feeling, grooves in soft satin, spliff tunes with lyrical extravagance, & piano-pieces in a dub style. There's musical diversity gal

While Richard Dorfmeister will always be remembered along with Peter Kruder for the now-classic 1998 downtempo record The K&D Sessions, both Kruder and Dorfmeister have given over substantial time since then to Peace Orchestra and Tosca, their respective "side projects." Dehli9 isn't quite in the class of Tosca's best work (namely, 1999's Suzuki), but it's still hypnotically impressive, using cyclic beats, lazy electronics, and a few choice vocalists to induce an active dream state. "Rolf Royce," featuring Stephan Graf Hadik Wildner's druggy vocal swoops, pits long melodic phrases against a staccato bassline to create a nice flow, while Earl Zinger's laconic style matches up well with the jazzier textures of "Wonderful." Fans of minimalism will want to investigate a bonus CD included with the record from Tosca's other member, fellow Austrian and like-minded beathead Rupert Huper. Based on an earlier piece from Huper titled "12 Easy-to-Play Piano Pieces," it's a somber, icily beautiful song cycle. Like late afternoon sunshine on a hazy winter's day, Dehli9's elegant and haunting mixture lingers in the background, barely holding onto the day as whatever light seeps through slowly fades to shadow. --Matthew Cooke

Customer Reviews

This CD has some great music on it.
S. Blodgett
I've always expected the best when I see Tosca on the cover but this exceeded my expectations.
Momchil Boyadjiev
Tight drum programming, laid back with strings, flutes, piano and the good old Tosca vibe.

Tosca's newest effort almost seamlessly continues their last effort, Suzuki, which is a good thing. The sound is very similar, the most notable change being a wider range of vocal accompaniment, but other than this, there wasn't enough to make this album higher on my list than Suzuki. If you liked their last, you'll most likely be happy with this purchase; but if you haven't heard the former, pick it up first.
Moving on, the packaging of Dehli9 is great: it has a very nice canvas cover enveloping two CDs of music. The first is the actual CD, and the second is filled with minimalist piano music that really doesn't ever pick up, but works well as haunting soundtrackish background music. I wouldn't pay for this CD alone, but it's a welcome addition. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that the last track of the CD ("La Vendeuse des Choussures des Femmes part 1") doesn't end with part 1. Tosca leaves you with a nice thank-you gift, letting you pick up part 2 online.
The music really hasn't evolved much since Suzuki, but it hasn't fallen, either. Just pick it up and chill.

The vocal disc is pretty good, although maybe not quite up there with the K&D Sessions. The other reviews sum it up just fine.

But if you like ambient music (and some of the comments below prove that not everyone does) then by all means give the second, ambient disc a shot. These piano pieces are haunting, chilling, moody, dark and downright gorgeous. I play the vocal disc maybe once for every twenty times I play the ambient one.

As others say here, it's the perfect music for a cold dark afternoon or evening; a wonderful soundtrack to a brooding mood. An absolute must-have, in my opinion. I'm a hard-core Enophile, but this is right up there with Eno's Ambient 2 (the Plateaux of Mirror), and that's saying something.

I bought this cd yesterday and have listened to it about 6 times already. It was well worth the wait for another cd from them. I think Suzuki is there best offering to date. If your a fan of tosca, K & D, peace orchestra then you will really like this cd, if you are more inclined to be a fan of Tosca alone then you might go either way. The second cd is mostly piano. It flows like one long song of smoked out, chilled piano sessions. I think the second cd is cool on its own but would not recomend it if it was sold seperatly. The main cd has a good live vibe to it and sounds more like a band than previous cds. There is a good amount of vocal work by a variety of featured artists that really work well with the Tosca formula. There are a few songs that sound like they could have been written from the Suzuki sessions. I think anyone waiting this long for a Tosca cd will be pleased with the cd, despite the wait...

This was a bit of a letdown for me. Having grown to love electronic music with the help of Mr. Dorfmeister and co., it's actually quite a shame to see what Tosca has been reduced to. Their first album, "Opera," had great depth in it's raw and somewhat gritty grooves. "Suzuki" was almost as good, skirting accessibility while remaining true to the deep Viennese feel. If it weren't for the second disc on this album, they would be totally lost.
The first single to come off of the album, "Wonderful," is complete cheese. After the first listen, it becomes hard to take with it's cheeky keyboards, upbeat tempo, and poppy flute lines. Earl Zinger contributes his vocals to it, which doesn't help in the least. He speaks of "ketchup in his throat" and just being groovy in general, and does anyone really want to hear about that? Not really.
The rest of the album is fairly blank. "Me and Yoko Ono" pulls no surprises, consisting of a straight, programmable beat and boring keys. Even the "sexy" vocals bug me. They stop making sense after a while. The rest of the tunes are mostly faster "deep house" songs that you can't really distinguish from each other. Sure, they're DEEP, but just not that good.
The second disc, comprised of sparse piano arrangements created by Rupert Huber (one half of Tosca), just barely saves the whole album. The feel of Vienna that sweeps all of Kruder and Dorfmeister's work is raw and more present than ever. Dorfmeister takes control of the pieces, adding effects and dimension to every corner and curve. "Einschlaf" and "Wien In E." are probably the best, sounding very gentle but pulsing with added swoons of children's choir and intentional white noise. Very spacey indeed.

Well, if you peruse the Amazon review and the rest of the reviews about this album, they more than cover the territory of the musical content. This CD has been a great relaxation album for me--in traffic when I'm stressed or when the job overshadows the rest of the day. Listening to headphones at night with a good book is another good way to enjoy it. I would imagine it would be good party wind-down music, or possibly even socializing background music. It just sails along with a cool vibe the whole way. I have to say, though, that it also sounds like it could accompany a xxx-rated film (not of the cheesy 70s variety, so don't worry). So I guess you could add that it would also fit into that evening with your special someone.

The second disc is very minimal, very dark--almost cold and soulless in its bleak piano ramblings. Perfect for those mid-winter dark nights where you feel the void opening up in the middle of your heart and you need to have a soundtrack that will reassure you that you're not alone.
