Germany's most active producer, Mr. Sascha Müller, celebrates his 20th untitled full length album on his very own Supersix Records Extra-imprint these days and starts this very special serving with a fascinatingly jumpy, rubber-like Acid vs. bassline assault named "Imerial" which is built from abstract anti-grooves and the echoes of large rave spaces and followed by a very stripped down, banging but still tribal'esque Tekno affair going by the name of "Input Output". But there's way more to this album than the straight perfect 4/4 that Sascha Müller seems to know inside out - listening to the strange "Klikklakk 1" is a really ultraworldy experience as it seems to live by haphazardly dispersed fragments of what once was a massive Disco-/FrenchHouse anthem but fully fell to pieces and when it comes to the dry, distorted ElectroPhonk that introduces the compressed "Combat Zone" we feel like we're beamed back into the heydays of Cisco Ferreira a.k.a. The Advent as a purveyor of high quality Techno purism. With "Listen To Your Inner Voice" we're finally introduced to the world of epic Space Ambient before "Medusa" touches the string of uberly reduced, technoid functionality again whilst "Meta 1" and "Meta 2" finally represent hard hitting Combat Techno for the headstrong. No prisoners taken with these tunes. Diverse as ever. Good as ever.
