ramona loves roman. roman loves ramona. the two just cant help it. naturally, the desperate housemen ep is his second 12-inch effort for live at robert johnson and a showcase of his versatility. like a crosspollination of his efforts as solyent green, roman iv or under his original name, you get four distillates of house music, cold wave and frankfurt-style electro-funk. distinctive, sparkling, 4x4 and paying attention to detail, this is like an update of the unpredictability that once made a nu groove record so exciting, fresh and not desperate at all. truly romantic!

back once again with a renegade master. starting the next round of robert johnsons extolled mix and limited box set series is none other than alter egos precious roman fluegel. also known as soylent green, eight miles high, roman iv and under a dozen other pseudonyms, flügel has done it all (insert electronic music genre here) – except for a mix cd.
the lifesaver 3 compilation, the yet most comprehensive package of the lifesaver history, sounds like electro, sharp-edged like the vault in a hague bunker (lauer), provides data pop with piano crescendo (fort romeau), brings the style characteristics of german schlager music to the breakdance mat (rolande garros), lets the bulky lily-of-the-valley bells clang and sends the reverb tails away with the wind (benedikt frey). there are several new names to discover: felix strahd, benjamin milz, vincent feit, and of course there a many old acquaintances: massimiliano pagliara, orson wells, tcb, chinaski. roman flügel brings us “good news”, however: “from another planet.” and fort romeau feels “lost, again”, but in such somnambulistically beautiful manner that you want to get lost with him instantly and jointly find the great joy.
after an excellent new album “yoyogi park”, our favorite german producers made great remix package. one of the most respectable label giegling artist kettenkraussell made two version. one is dark deep house and one more is electronica style which reminds us jan janelik. our hero roman flugel remix is more uplifting and trippy, this is simply nice for the club. lake people remix is old school electro style but sounds very modern and playful. enjoy!
house is oks seventh instalment goes kraut with a three tracker from chris beiswenger formally known as tcb (the citizens band). since the split up of arto mwambe, chris has been slowly building a sound of his own. instead of sticking to standard templates he has gone deep into modular synthesis and his music can be described as futuristic, kindred and cerebral. labels such as live at robert johnson, tasteful nudes and story already recognised tcbs unique twist and rather happy songs is just another proof of his unquestionable quality. these three mid-tempo techno ballads will get your mind moving and spirit floating while your body will fall in instant trance dancing to these highly hypnotising pieces. a remix from roman flu?gel on top makes the ep a 100% frankfurt affair and when it comes to house and techno, we frankfurters take our green sauce serious, dont we? cheers, hiok team
