a pleasant surprise,
This review is from: fabric29: Tiefschwarz (Audio CD)
Tiefschwarz's productions have always been a mixed experience for me. For every neat, quirky house tune there's an obnoxious screeching monstrosity waiting to pounce (THAT Kinda New remix, mainly.) So I bought this with an open mind, hoping to get turned on to a tune or two.
But the fact is, it's fantastic. The brothers Schwarz (wisely) stick to the subtler side of their sound. Nothing much here goes bzzzzzzzzzt. After the shifty, paranoid opener, we go straight into Claude Vonstroke's "who's afraid of detroit?", which is a perfectly moody techno cut with a twinkly, off kilter synth lead and neat subby bassline. The mood is deep and occasionally spooky as on "A.A.K.N.Y", but there's time for some nicely swung funk in Night On Earth's "Rondell" and the echoing horror-vibes of Jamie Jones' "Amazon".
This is really worth picking up, and far more consistent than your average Schwarz output.
