Review

One of the many oddities in the English language is the array of collective nouns to describe the word "group". Sam Barker and Andreas Baumecker's second missive for German techno juggernaut Ostgut Ton "A Murder Of Crows" is one such example. "Part 1" opens with a cavernous four-four groove similar to Tommy Four Seven's 2009 Man Like Me remake. White hot snares and rattling percussion fizz to a heady climax enveloped by a throbbing slug of a bass line. Piercing 909 hats, Marcel Fengler thwacks and demonic synths add to the furore. The dank and techy basement beats of "Part 2" align itself with something you would expect from Untold or Hessle Audio, not German techno. Barker & Baumecker's booming kicks, nerdy percussion and ravey synth wobbles distance Ostgut Ton from the concrete and Berghain-centric sound synonymous with the label.
