Wolfgang Voigt and Jörg Burger’s debut album is very much in the spirit of Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series: this is big, chewy, elastic, in-your-face ambient, full of big crashing noises and dubby swooshes, atmospheric but with as much sense of fun as darkness… it borders on the perky in places. It even has a reasonably decent BPM much of the time. I’m hugely looking forward to seeing them at the Today’s Art festival later this year — I think this would sound fantastic reverberating around The Hague’s Town Hall.
I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Electronic.
