Daniel Müller-Sachs and Andreas Krieste's loose and experimental production style gives their brand of minimal dyed house and techno a deliciously raw and live feel. With the Blue Random EP, the duo known as Taron Trekka deliver their second EP for Freude Am Tanzen in as many years, following the success of 2009's Artys Iisii". "Blue Mountain" sees a deliciously deep yet simple groove layered over with a jazz influenced trumpet, while "Colours" is a smoother and more laid back number, allowing a funk sentiment to infiltrate Trekka's deepest of deep house. "Mr No (Where Is The Magic)" however, is where things really get moving and break away into a wild and untamed monster, with a lovely combination of lightness in the top end and nasty rumbling bass down below.
Yellow Magic is the latest in a series of EPs on the Wighnomy Brothers' label by this German duo. Following on from this year's "Purple Magic" release, they have decided to give their studio trickery a different shade. The title track is a tracky, stripped back affair with vocal samples whispering in and out of the arrangement. It's exactly the kind of track one would expect Robag Wruhme to play. "Consoli" follows in a similar vein, but "Trsnumak" ushers in a change of direction as rattling percussion and menacing organ playing are introduced. Although billed as a bonus track, "Segelboot" also impresses, with its jazzy keys and insistent bleeps.
