Released only this week is Alex Niggemann's album debut "Paranoid Funk" put on the circuit via the great Poker Flat Recordings which once again prove that their A&R department always is on the forefront of exploring new or at least relatively fresh talent as Mr. Niggemann has been releasing various 12"es on different labels since 2008 and appeared on several compilations since then as well. But "Paranoid Funk" is his first attempt on the long play format and a well-crafted for sure, exploring the field in between warm, deeper and more athmospheric TechHouse, slightly jacking formats - "That Is...(Vinyl Cut)" - and even some 'troity prime time affairs like the massive "Back 2 Basics" which has been crafted alongside Benji. Defo a nice overall affair, showcasing the multiple tasks and talents of Alex Niggemann which is one of the artists to make bigger waves in the next years, easily establishing themselves amongst the top notch producers of this scene. This is the next generation in TechHouse.
