This is hyper precise, chilly, German techno. Often tough; Louis Andriessen comes to mind repeatedly and in a good way. Cropped overtones and resonances make much of this sound electronic, even though it apparently comes from samples of acoustic instruments. Some tracks are instrumental. Vocalists vary across other tracks, offering a variety of mainly avant-garde pop styles that have also been electronically altered. Some settings drift; others are hyper minimalist, others hyper active. For me, the more active, the better, and several roar. Gavin Bryar's spirit is close by in "Miami Drift." Instrumental "Ocean Drive" grows in urgency until it fires on all cylinders. "Broken Pieces" gets downright funky and jazzed in setting and vocal (Jamie Lidell). But Lidell's pleading vocal on "Empty Words" brings little funk to the dead-flat noir machine shop stomp. Syncopation and ever-unpredictable timbres of decorative effects in "Fantasie Mädchen," on the other hand, bring life to the big dance beat. Multiple points of interest and finally a techno CD that approaches my hopes, but is it enough in the end? The more I listen, the more I like.
