As soon as you read the title, you know what’s going on! Christian Quast is sending some rough’n’rowdy techno sessions handmade from the studio to Snork Enterprises. The whole release is a tribute to old school electronic music. And the track titles speak volumes. “Total Modular”, “ReturnY30”, “BergHain Sachter”, “Kasseler Berge”, and “Popodrome” are nostalgically and slightly satirically relating to legendary German techno clubs such as Berghain (Berlin), Stammheim (Kassel), or the Phonodrome (Hamburg).
Clearly, you can hear the 90s dust in-between the keys. And that’s exactly how it should be because it still got the stories – and the groove. The drums are tight and the beats are quirky. The bass line sits straight. And the energy flows right from the hands to your ears.
