Comment: this set of 4 pieces is a collaborative act by Mabik & Xamax at a half extent. The rest of a couple of compositions is accomplished by Mabik alone. In general, I guess there is no need to make difference between the two aforementioned compartments because the tracks will make up an organic, consistent whole. It is a tonic drift between jagged rhythms of techno and spasmodic vibrations of electro music (the latter element is obviously represented at Im Holze). The opening track D-Meter is a collaborative act and one of the interesting issues as if conjured up by a coiled spring mechanism and then these sonic shards seem to be inserted into the sampling unit. It used to wobble and sway in a peculiar yet amusing manner. The same tendencies seem to come out from the next composition Der Maulwurf either though in a lesser extent. This is an example of low-end techno with stumbling bits and deliberately awkward sonic effects. Der Flossenmann is the most "proper" bird within it due to stepwise progressing and acquiring new (watery) frontiers and dimensions. The issue is a proper one being a part in the catalogue of Pentagonik. On the February 19th the issue will celebrate its 10 year birthday.
