Lowtec - Easy To Heal Cuts [Avenue66 011 Test Pressing]

Scheduled for release via Avenue 66 as the labels 011 is "Easy To Heal Cuts", the latest album outing by German producer Jens Kuhn a.k.a. Lowtec who's been making sonic waves on the scene since the late 90s. Digging deep in his archives of rare and formerly unreleased cuts Lowtec presents six pieces from the vault on this one with no information or detail given - at least not on our upfront whitelabel copy - on the exact date of production or their general context within the long standing artists career. Yet, even without this information we do assume that these cuts do hark way back in time - from the raw, psychedelic, yet slightly dubbed out Techno of "Flat Dog" to the beautifully twisted, tribal'esque IDM x Electronica fusion of "Going Nowhere" and its crisp and tender harmonies as well as the dry, experimental nature and somewhat Sandbenders-reminiscing vibe of "Red Sparrow" which will be a major flashback for all those still remembering this very first EP outing of the short lived Bodo Elsel / Martin Maischein collaboration, all of them to be found on the albums A-side which also holds a sweet untitled Electronica bonus track. Furthermore the flip opens with the playful, frolicking, yet slightly quirky IDM Rave-leaning title track "Easy To Heal Cuts" subsequently followed by the sparse excellent DubTechno variation named "Nature Thinks For You" which defo is the second major highlight on this release before "From Moment To Moment" waves goodbye in a deep, calm, yet hypnotic manner, providing a nice late night addition to the sets of well experienced ChillOut DJs around the globe. Good stuff, this.
