Move D & Benjamin Brunn
LETS CALL IT A DAY (2LP,GATEFOLD COVER)
2x12" Vinyl D
Great Collaboration of Move D & Benjamin Brunn
Can music be classic and contemporary at the same time? Can it contain a
secret genetic code in which the summary of the past, the present pulse,
and the future view are hidden? Be ahead of its time and not lose
relevance along the way? "Let’s Call it A Day" the first album collaboration
of German authors Move D (David Moufang) and Benjamin Brunn, which
first appeared on a CD on Bine Music in 2006, now remastered by Calyx
and on Vinyl for the first time ever, proves it is not only possible
hypothetically, but can also live amongst us.
This is a complete piece built from seven sections, each one is a
microcosm of unique textures, depth, ambience, emotions, programming,
looping and melodic rules; Together they are a homogenous creation, a
symphony that culminate in dance music experiencing elevation.
"Let’s Call it A Day", which in a way is the big brother of "Songs from the
Beehive" - their exhilarating installment for Smallville from 2008, is an
album above the Zeitgeist. The way Moufang and Brunn fuse different
genres together without committing to any musical doctrine, makes them
appear prophetic. However, it is in no sense a retrospect feeling; even at
the time it was clear that the perceptions, experience, vision, and delicacy
of this album were outstanding.
Every element here, every frequency, rhythm, turnaround or keyboard
tapping, is the material from which masterpieces are made of. From the
opening meditative ever evolving loops of On the Magic Bus to the
abstract drones of Grains with its almost nonexistent bass drum - like it
was aimed to hit the Ambient-House craze of these past few
years; through the mesmerising dubbiness of A, which sounds like a rave
ending in an echo chamber and the constant micro-movement of the
arpeggios in the title track; Ω, which sounds like a soundtrack for a
sinking submarine footage and the ambient downbeat of C-Sick, which
melts your heart from within; and finally the closer- the fragile and
elegant beauty of Magnetically Leviated Train. More than 76 minutes of
diving constantly deeper and deeper.
This new remastered version will feature a brand new and extra glossy
Stefan Marx gatefold cover, that will give the perfect visual expression of
the album’s timeless music. And If there was ever a downside to "Let’s
Call it A Day", it would be its lack of a vinyl edition. Well, this is exactly
what we’re sorting now, aren’t we?
