very limited release... a thread of electro runs further throughout the zeitnot series on zeit006, quadratschulzs vibrant and playful melodies dance back and forth across 4 tracks all well-suited for the dancefloor.
quadratschulz delivers his debut album -ww303-. ten tracks make up this vision, a vision of lazers, pulsing neon and gleaming chrome. arcade game memories. curls of acid. electrofunk vocals. synth wave chic. and even some past greats. all are lovingly folded together in this rich and diverse collection. styles are juxtaposed. 303 bars throb and strings soar in the lilting -der rasende roland- whereas -robotic dancer- struts to a future-world funk. quadratschulz sculpts his sound with a wonderfully warm and autumnal quality, as in the cascading synth showers of ferrofluid. yet there are colder moments, the frigid flows of kran sprouting into the chilly house tones of piloten. a tribute to the groundbreaking lfo is also included. bleep festooned chicanery is the offering as ring the bell takes you back to the infamous warehouse parties of 90s britain. and if that weren t enough, the 2lp also comes with downloads for some cracking remixes by dmx krew, andreas gehm, kettel, chris moss acid and posthuman to name but a few. a wide angle view of quadratschulz s unique sound.
RING THE BELL (POSTHUMAN GEZ VARLEY AND FAH REMIXES)
12" Vinyl NL12.01.17
bleep. easily one of the most influential sounds to grow out of the burgeoning electronics scene of the late 80s. nowadays, easily one of the most overlooked genres. but not around njimgen. shipwrec are turning some deserved attention to those pioneering plinks and plonks for a 12- homage to the trailblazers of the sound, lfo. quadratschultz provides the material, the german artist serving a warehouse brewed, acid spiked, tribute to mark bell and gez varley. posthuman ruffle the edges that bit more with a bleary eyed 303 monster before countryman fah gives basslines a steroid injection for a thick and meaty mix. varley closes with a tribute to his former group. his lfo remix might be a solo endeavour but it has all the raw unrefined dancefloor energy that characterised the music of a certain pair of young lads from leeds cerca 1990. bleep bliss.
