Product Description

Tosca's second album 'Suzuki' (Studio K7) takes a lighter, airier approach to the trip-hop terrain that Opera explored. The spare, shimmering title track's delicate synth textures, minimal beats, mellow rhythms, and breathy vocal samples set the tone for

Amazon.com

More moody musical fairytales from Richard Dorfmeister, this time with Rupert Huber under the guise of Tosca. Suzuki is--like his releases with Kruder and Dorfmeister--a sublime work that manipulates emotions through sound. Soft and sweet, subtle and supple, Tosca's tracks drift, sifting from one dream to the next. Though they patch hip-hop, jazz, ambient, and techno together, you can't hear where one begins and the other ends. "Annanas" pairs sneaky, squeaky scratching with a lusty female vocal and bossa-nova-inspired hip-hop breaks, while "Orozco" loops a playful riff, running it through reverbs and filters, creating something like pure bliss for the ears. --Tricia Romano

This is a cd everyone who likes good music needs to own.

Great drum beats, snippets of vocals and a polished feel over all.

Their work as Tosca is exceptional, and Suzuki is one of art.

Tosca is the fun side-project of Austrian artists Rupert Huber and Richard Dorfmeister, whom you might know more from his work alongside Peter Kruder in DJ/producer/remix team Kruder & Dorfmeister. Tosca has been together since 1994, and 'Suzuki' (released in Feb. 2000) comes as their most recent full-length album, though you can also catch a number of extremely good albums of remixes taken from both her albums, 'Opera' and this one.
As for 'Suzuki' it's hard to take a pick. "Pearl In-Suzuki" is an amazing intro into the album and into a mood by itself. "Annanas" and "Busenfreund" are super-contagious, and the list can go on and on. It's an album that you can very easily read or work to, given its downbeat (at times almost Bossanova-like), chillout sound to it. Very highly recommended. If you enjoy them, also check out obviously Kruder & Dorfmeister, Zero 7, Air and Thievery Corporation.

The smoothest treble, the funkiest bass, and all manner of silky, sliding beats and noises in between give this Tosca album a style and quality yet to be reproduced by the duo.
After hearing tracks from this album and "Opera," on the internet radio station Monkey Radio, I felt it was my duty to find out who this mysterious 'Tosca' was. Turned out it was made up of Richard Huber and the latter half of Kruder & Dorfmeister, a duo for which I already had much respect. The choice of Opera and Tosca was a tough one, but after listening to both, I can say Tosca is the more solid effort.
Though not as gritty as Opera, Suzuki effortlessly moves through many worlds of sound, keeping a consistently funky beat going for each song. Each song on this album has a beat that will creep into your head without knowing it, and before long you'll know which beat, rhythm, and theme goes with each song on the album.
Even though Dehli 9, Tosca's next original album after this, contains two CDs, don't let twice the CDs fool you. With a second disc containing what sounds like Huber hungover, stammering on the piano for an amazing beat similar to what opens and closes Suzuki, Dehli 9 boils down to one CD with some good highlights, but overall a drag for the latter half.
If you're picking and choosing for the Tosca album to be happiest with, and don't mind missing out on Opera's Chocolate Elvis, Suzuki will keep you in a very happy place for a very long time.

After seriously digging Peter Kruder's Peace Orchestra I was intrigued to know what Richard Dorfmeister was doing. Tosca is Dorfmeister teaming up with Rupert Huber to produce down tempo at it's finest. This is an album which is excellent to chill out to. Great drum beats, snippets of vocals and a polished feel over all. If you enjoy down beat electronic sound, this is a must have.

...back when i was coming up, groups like kraftwerk and art of noise were as much a part of the hip-hop community as afrika bambaata or mantronix...sadly, true hip-hop is no longer that diverse (take a moment to pour your favorite libation here)...anyway, this cd right here is pretty damn good especially honey, boss on the boat, ocean beat, the key and doris dub. this aint no where near hip-hop, there is no hard, edgy beats to be found here and it's not jazz, but some of the tracks had wes montgomery's "angel" feel to it.
...tosca keeps things interesting by introducing a variety of sounds and melodies every so often instead of locking onto any one particular beat and looping it for an entire song.
...if you're anything like me, and you're looking for something completely different outside of your usual listening standards, then this downtempo thing right here aint too bad a place to start.

i first came across this cd in a small record shop in camden town, and i had this uncontrollable urge to listen to it. just having listened to the first two tracks, i spent my final 15pounds on it, and never regretted doing so. this cd is nowhere near the usual k&d sound. it's just that the producer of this album is richard dorfmeister, and i must admit that it's a tremendous work. acoustic drums accompanied by absent vocal echos, smooth pads, groovy outcome. a must.

Richard Dorfmeister takes a short hiatus from K&D to collaborate with Rupert Huber on their second effort, "Suzuki." I have not listened to their first("Opera")so I cannot compare the two. What I CAN do is compare it to Dorfmeister's collaboration with Peter Kruder. In this respect it falls short.
Unlike reviewers before me, I think Pearl In (track 1) is entirely appropriate. It pearls in (pun intended) to the rest of the disc and at the end (Pearl Off) is the perfect backdrop to the music, creating a well-rounded sound.
The Disc itself showcases the innovative and mixing talents of the two artists (now I know who contributes the dubbing/echoing sounds on K&D's music). The tracks are mostly average with a few standouts: Suzuki, Honey, Boss on the Boat, and Ocean Beat. Others fall short of the completely mellow sound that we, or rather, I, have come to expect from talents of Dorfmeister's caliber.
I like the CD, but I was expecting more, hence the 4 star rating. Still, if you want the complete collection of the artists' work, go ahead and buy it. In retrospect, you will come to enjoy the entire experience.
:-)
