This is my first encounter with the music of this duo, although I know the music of each of these established musicians is thoroughly rooted in the Berliner School sound for years.
“Frankfurt Breakfast” (19:46) is a dynamic but eclectic excursion into well rendered sequencer landscapes, synth textures, minimal rhythms, fx’s and shape shifting mellotron flute solo’s which all realm in a slightly similar sonic environment as Schulze’s late 70’s works.
The second piece “Berlin Lunch” (25:31) proves to be stronger, starting out free form, atmospheric and rather foreboding, but soon evolving its own, slower pace as the vintage sequencing and mellotron flavours show up in the background. Scarce solo’s fly over the meandering textures and environmentals, making this a vintage piece shine in its own dimmed light.
This is a must-have for Berliner School fans.
