Gamlaskatten - Voltage [Audiophob 038]

Put out on the circuit via Jena's ever active Audiophob label on April 1st, 2k22 is "Voltage", the first full length album effort cooked up by the Aachen-based project Gamlaskatten which is the latest musical outing by producer Ralf Gatzen who has been pretty active on the underground scene throughout the past years, employing a variety of different guises which shall remain unnamed here. With his newest project and the sonic nom de guerre that is Gamlaskatten Mr. Gatzen serves a menu of eleven brand new tracks over the course of roughly 67 minutes, covering grounds from the expertly shaped and heavily syncopated Electro / Broken Techno fusion of the opener "Magadan" to pounding Industrial Techno in "Dirty Ground" which is slightly reminiscent of Current Value's long forgotten Techno ventures under the name of Curve #146 before entering high octane territories with the title track whereas pieces like "Transmission 3" explore the grey area in between Industrial, Acid and heavy early 90s Techno in an intense, ever spiralling fashion that's well suitable for strobe-lit peaktime dancefloors whilst the closing cut that is "CCCPx" brings forth cold and haunting Space Ambient atmospheres and heavy, grinding Downtempo Industrial / Illbient structures for a change just to name a few. File under: heavy artillery for adventurous DJ's. Check.
