Review: Still in the game outta Montreal Canada is TVP's Multi Culti label with a second collaborative release from Berlin duo Sascha Funke & Niklas Wandt! It follows up the project's Wismut EP from last year with three new and supersonic, primed cuts pumped up with new wave, cosmic and psychedelica-deutsche power! Take the "Blue Monday" atmospheres and Klaus Schultz-like instrumentation in "Kreidekreis" with its over the top crescendos and high voltage synths that balance out next to the stripped-back, future disco and spacey tribal effects of "Kometenschweif". With a heavier, grungy bassline given prominence in "Weg Vom Leder" allowing Niklas Wandt's sly vocals to take up center-stage, a similar recipe is followed in Whodammy's remix to "Kometenschweif". Adding some extra lo-fi effects and instrumental dub flavours to the record is Alexander Arpeggio and his post punk-y take of "Kreidekreis". New German New Wave, yeah!
Review: More oddball exotica from the Berlin-based Multi Culti camp, this time courtesy of local veteran Sascha Funke (Endless Flight/Kompakt) who returns to the label to follow up 2016's In Relationen EP. Here on the Wismut EP he teams up with drummer/percussionist/singer/ Niklas Wandt, known for his involvement in projects with Wolf Mueller, Neuzeitliche Bodenbelaege and running the Smells party series at Sameheads. Featuring such folked-up and psyched-out journeys like "Die Saege" which is heavy on the dub aesthetics, the lo-slung kosmische disco of "Lobotomie" or the bouncy 8-bit Bollywood vibe of "Fur Die Paar Heller". Knowledge of the German language is helpful but not mandatory!
