Yarek – Noc Na Zamku
CD, Generator.pl, 2008


“Noc Na Zamku” (which can be translated as “A Night in the Castle”) by Yarek, aka Jarek Degorski, is the fourth release of the Polish Generator-label.

This seems to be a live recording (part of the Polish event “Olsztyńskie Lato Artystyczne 2007”) although it overall sounds like a studio work.
The album offers eight tracks of intense, fresh, versatile Berliner School, slightly Redshift-oriented sequencing and lush solo voices.

The third piece “La Orkestra” accelerates into fourth gear, as the well rendered electronics, beats and rhythms venture into dance/trance territory as TD’s “Kiew Mission” kindred vocal samples pass by through the sonic spectrum. Vocal phrases and breathing sounds mingled with holdback electronics slow things down again on “Ambient II”.

The following piece “Live” is made up of repetitive, mid-tempo paced hypnotic sequencer structures over which trance-like solo voices freely hover, as a dance beat shortly kicks in halfway.
“Ambient” once begins with the “Kiew Mission” kindred vocal samples, after which stereophonic wide spread trancy sequencing, clicking rhythms and a lofty solo-voice set things in pleasant mid-tempo motion.

“Berlin” comes next, featuring breathing sounds, Spyra and Jarre-flavoured sequencing structures and beats, topped by a “Oxygene pt1”-reminiscent solo.
“Misja na marsa” closes the almost 50-minute album with powerful, in-your-face sequencing, Kraftwerkian voices and beats, with nice vintage sounds fading away at the end.

Although the origin of this recording raises some questions, this sure is a dynamic, sparkling and well produced release that will please the ears of lots of electronic music fans out there.
