The temptation to resort to enthusiastic bouts of expletives when describing a track such as "Beyond Thunderdome" from Dieselboy and Bare is hard to resist, but we'll try. Quite rightly called a devastating sonic weapon by the US duo, you imagine Dieselboy and Bare had plenty of fun cooking this post apocalyptic dubstep monolith up in their "Gotham City" studio, though that's probably consumed by how much they enjoy seeing "Beyond Thunderdome" dropped on a unsuspecting audience not ready for what follows the relative calm of the intro. Complete dancefloor devastation guaranteed on this one.
Every once in a while a work comes along to change one's perception of a musical form. It is no exaggeration to say that Angoor will make anyone who hears it will revise their opinion of minimal house. There are tracks here that have nothing to do with our understanding of minimalism, like "Toddle", a half heard vocal murmuring or the widescreen shanty that is "Quellla Suppplica Dagli Occhi". Even when the album does catch a groove, it does so in the most unusual ways; the epic "Ballade Privae" is based on live drumming, "Wherein" is a droning, groove and "Randnummern" descends into a wild, gamelan-style exercise in freeform abandon.
