Berlin based avant-garde label MINIMOOD reach a historic milestone with another top drawer release, this time featuring two tracks from the superlative ZIGGY KINDER and an amazing first remix release from two of MINIMOODs very own co-founders, ERICH BOGATZKY & VOLT.MAR.
Berlin’s Minimood continues its foray into the realms of quality techno and tech inspired house following up recent stellar releases from Gregorythme and Fusiform & Mark Henning with this outstanding single from Cologne based Ziggy Kinder. Kinder is a producer that has been key in the success of Matthias Schaffhauser’s Ware and Tiefschwarz' Souvenir label providing a string of superb singles that have seen him forge his place amongst Germany’s musical elite.
For his debut single on Minimood Kinder kicks off with the wonderful ‘Lucky Look’; the infectious and uplifting melody bounces and warps its way through the airspace luring you in for more. ZIGGY KINDER’S gravity defying magical touch finely reinforces MINIMOOD’s hallmark sound of seemingly careless simplicity camouflaging underlying musical genius. An outstanding dancefloor track that is already a hit with Dj’s everywhere.
The original is followed by an excellent remix from Minimood’s own Erich Bogatzky and Volt.mar. Stripping the original back into more dubbed out minimal territory, the lush incidental melody stabs and wriggling clavs craftily blend for maximum seduction. Mysterious, edgy and slightly anxious, this new production team are already showing themselves to be masters of mood manipulation.
Finally Kinder closes the packaged with the alternatively titled ‘Look Lucky’, where he moves into darker club territory with this chugging monster. Drawing inspiration from classic techno forms but unbound by its rules, its classic old school groove is projected into more unpredictable contemporary territory through a bleep infested melody and some mind bending jittery and unpredictable percussion to form an irresistibly funky product. Pure quality.
Minimood continues to impress at every turn and this single is certainly no exception. (added: 2010-03-04 15:38:16 )
