Customer Review

on 3 June 2007
Straight to the point: the best electro mix I've ever heard. I'm a sucker for dark mixes, be it prog or electro, and this is the king of the latter, followed closely perhaps by Sven Vath's Sound of the 6th Season and The Hacker's A.N.D. N.O.W. Where Sven's effort was in-your-face and angry, this is its moody, brooding cousin.

Funnily enough the first track gets on my nerves, interesting vocals effect though it is. But after that you can't go wrong - it's such a finely crafted and structured mix that it really needs to be appreciated in its whole rather than laying particular credit at the door of individual tracks. M.A.N.D.Y turns in a terifficly atmospheric and chilling remix of Tiefschwarz' own "Damage", while other highlights are Ichundu's dancefloor-killing "Hey" (which sounds like two tracks, broken up by the brilliant frightning, tribalesque vocal samples) and Tiefschwarz's rather artistic rework of Depeche Mode's John the Revelator, its layered xylophone tracks juxtoposed in the fashion of a lot of electro-experimenting composers of the 1960s like Stockhausen (I bet I get a few "not helpful" votes for comparing this to classical music).

Jamie Jones's electro flagship makes an appearance as one of the calmer moments of this mix and, though it's been mixed by just about everyone on the electro and minimal circuits, it finds its perfect home in this mix. The pan synths of Riton's whirling "Hammer of Thor" at the end adds an 80s element to the mix.

A thoroughly absorbing and intelligent mix from start to finish from an act who, with the likes of Sven, show why Germany arguably rule the waves of electro house.
----
Like this? Try either of the above two mixes or Tiefschwarz's new Black Music mix - more eccentric, varied and humourous and far less dark than this one, but nonetheless teriffic.
