After recently releasing a teaser EP for "Werkschau," the full album is finally here and ready to roll. German producer and Dj Landsky has been through many different styles in his time, but today he's a firm favourite on the Poker Flat label, and this album acts as a compilation of all his best work so far.
Probably his most well-known tune, 1000 Miles, gets an overhaul, appearing here as 2000 Miles. It becomes a more pacey affair with more punch in the bottom end, and more squelchy synths on top, altogether bigger than the original. Elsewhere his mix of Detroit Grand Pubah's Surrender is a real winner, layering the laconic spoken-word acapella over some deep and beautiful minimal grooves. There's more funky action on his mix of SoopaFi's Talkin' Large, as well as some fresh percussion on the dubiously titled Mission Upskirt. But mostly though, Lansky lays on superior deep techno by the pound on Werkschau. FM Safari is a hypnotic and brain-melting delight, while Monitor One is a shape-shifting essential which could work in any number of dj sets
Well worth getting up to date with Martin Lansky's work so far.
