Sascha Müller [Supersix Records Extra 094]

To be put on the circuit via his very own Supersix Records label soon is Sascha Müller's 94th - sic! - untitled album on the imprint, another 12 track journey into the world of high quality club and dance music. Opening up with "The Matix" Sascha Müller leads us straight to the heart of the dancefloor with a stripped down, bouncy and seductively grooving take on Electro-infused MinimalTechno rolled out over 11+ minutes, providing endless dancefloor hypnosis with a few offbeat shots and slight Trance references whereas "TOC" goes down a darker, somewhat gooey path of strangely shuffled minimalism, off-center grooves and twisted, unusual dynamics. The "Transmission" gets down in a dynamic, highly captivating Techno manner, bringing forth a complex synth motif and a subaquatic motor city feel, "Trap The System" combines dry, relentless Techno bassdrums and reverberating mechanoises to create a threatening, suffocating feel of dystopian paranoia before "Traumphase" goes deep into dreamy, acidic Electro territories and "Travelbox" harks back to the artists very 2005-released 7" debut for the Hamburg-based label Intrauterin Recordings. With "Triebkraft" we are propelled through a hollow, somewhat desolate and monotonous black and white Techno tunnel, "UKW *Original Mix" weighs in brutalist, highly compressed marching Techno on the brink of Hardcore despite sporting a bleepy, somewhat tongue-in-cheek main motif as well as a large scale Rave / HardTrance breakdown whereas the subsequent "UKW *Smash The Radio Mix" pays homage to raw unprocessed jumpy Italian AcidRave of the early 90s to a great effect. Furthermore "Unidentified Objects" transmit minimalist, subaquatic signals for buzzing dancefloors, the "Vorlauffunktion" provides more slightly monotonous, yet ever evolving technoid HypnoTrance for those exploring the very depths of their inner mind before the concluding cut "Wellenbereich" explores experimental, well psychedelic Ambient Noize in combination with distorted, heavily altered and modulated radio and TV recordings for an interesting collage evoking memories of great 90s ChillOut acts entering and abusing the realm of human communication techniques - think Scanner or The Future Sound Of London here.
