Two legends from rather different backgrounds collaborate on this EP.
Austrian-American DJ John Tejada is a legend in electronic music as has thrived in the scene as a sought-after remixer. I had the pleasure of meeting him several times while working at a record shop in Los Angeles during the 1990s, and it pleases me to no end how far his career has taken off.
Ulrich Krieger is a composer, improviser and experimental rock musician from Germany whose work you may have heard either as a composer or interpreter of contemporary classical music with Zeitkratzer/ or as a member of such experimental rock bands such as Art Zoyd.
Track 3 is freeform and beat-less, showing Krieger’s compositional skill. The piece stands out on its own, but in the hands of Tejada, he gives is a heartbeat that makes you want to move. Two tracks are remixed by Josh Wink, and they are of excellent quality.
It’s releases like this which keep me interested in techno. Bravo, lads.
