dillmann&schauer – BePrePaired – SLR026 available on Sub-Label Recordings – Black – Techno Record Label.
Having their debut on Sub-Label Recordings, dillmann&schauer’s EP release, ‘BePrePaired’ puts a new melodic note to the variety of Techno, which the label offers. BePrePaired contains a mix of four energising tracks that all tell a story, composed with a sound, that you can both dance and relax to.
‘Kraftakt’ with it’s precise bass drum and a driving bass line puts you into the mood to run as fast,and as far as you never have done it before. The relaxing melodies calm you down to let you rest after the hard work you have done, before bringing you back up again with even more energy than before.
‘Don’t Forget a Human Here’ is a futuristic themed track telling the story of what will happen if mankind has to leave the earth. Starting with a single lead synth alerting sounds are mixed into the track to set you up for a world’s end scenario, whilst the melodic parts still keep you optimistic.
‘Lift Off’ kicks right in with the heaviest bass drum this EP can offer. A variety of sounds and melodies is woven into a dense and complex sound. Although it might not be as genius, it is inspired by Phil Collins ‘In the air tonight’, clearly to hear as the drum roll leads into a similar but far more energising part of the track.
Despite its room covering strings and a hard delayed bass maybe ‘You Got It’ is a twist on the dillmann&schauer style. Yet it provides a hard sound with a clear rhythm that shows your dancing loving ego, that you still got it.
