You can imagine how modern electronics would have sounded in the glorious black and white Sixties if there had been more than just Trautonium, Theremin and ribbon loops. Berlin-based Peter Catani, who has poached in German hip-hop and techno, seems to have set himself this goal. And so the whole thing sounds like club-suited spaceship Orion sound. It bubbles and rumbles as if sampler and synth had united with a Hammond organ. But of course minimalist modern electro rhythms also come into their own. "Lithuanian Roots" sings electronically like the digital distortion in an old B-movie. To match the beginning of "Head Of The Enemy", a crime-film voice is faded in and Twang guitars duel with anachronistic brass sample sounds. "Family Circus" actually lets Klampfe, Hammond organ, distorted guitar, film sound scraps and Jean-Michel-Jarre-Synthies play in the concert. We're still this creative. The closest one comes to this crazy sound cosmos with a dadaistic attitude like in our old heroes Yello.
