5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams Are Made Of This, 6 Jun. 2011
The Wolf (uk) - See all my reviews
This review is from: THORA VUKK (Audio CD)
Robag Wruhme is Gabor Schablitzki. He was one half of
a techno DJ duo called the Wighnomy Brothers. This is
his second solo album. 2004's 'Wuzzlebud KK' is more
than worth a listen too (it's a many-headed hungry beast!)
but with 'Thora Vukk' Mr Schablitzki is happy to show
us the gentler side of his nature. A man and his machines
united in common electronic/imaginative human purpose.

There are twelve tracks in the set; seven longer pieces
interspersed with five atmospheric sonic interludes.
The rhythms are crisp, bright and often (witness the
delicious 'Prognosen Bomm') downright funky.

Music to listen to; music to dance to; music to both
listen and dance to simultaneously. Flexible music.

The plinks and plonks of opening track 'Wupp Dek' (just
loving these titles!) leads us slowly through soft chordal
waves and half-whispered distorted vocals into a more
substantial and upbeat percussive structure; the bigger beats
holding the arrangement together even as it slips and slides
dangerously close to a dreamlike void.

Title track 'Thora Vukk' shimmers like sunlight on the surface
of a silver lake. A meditative composition who's tinkling cymbals
and bells give the piece an almost spiritual ambience which
washed over the limbs of my inner-hippie like a warm wave.

'Pnom Gobal' is fast becoming a firm favorite in The Wolfcave.
The warm strings, vocal "dah dah dumm(s)" and "bo bo bo(s)" (approx!),
curious incidental wheezes and subtely insistent rhythms make it
a very difficult invention to sit still to (so we don't!)

For sheer beauty, however, look no further than the final track 'Ende',
a sublimely simple and strangely haunting piece of nachtmusik which
brings this lovely album to an emotionally uplifting conclusion.

(I seem to have aquired a pretty little extra track called 'Fusspause'
on my download edition which the CD version may or may not have).

If dreams could be made of stuff like this
I really wouldn't want the dream to end.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars thora vukk - robag rhume, 18 Aug. 2011
This review is from: THORA VUKK (Audio CD)
There are only a few actual tunes on here but each track has a cool groove. You are never more than a few moments from a killer beat. This album will not blow your speakers, it is restrained, almost thoughtful and the voice on the last track will have you laughing!
