'It's not until 'Redemption,' one of the only three straightforward techno efforts here, that anything club-ready arrives' Erm so electro is not club ready?
it is not.
Not in berlin. techno djs don't play electro, I still can remember function who played 2 electro tracks (one drexciya) in a row in berghain ... and that' s all what I can remember of, when it's about playing more than one electro track in a techno set. Of course delta funktionen plays some electro too, but one must admit that electro is a lot more underground and unknown than techno and you challenge the crowd a lot with this kind of music if it's not a special party with electro a s a theme and some nerds coming around.
That's how it's look like for me in berlin.
electro is living, but that's for few passionate people, not those who think "electro's always the same".
redemption is the obvious track for techno people, but obviously aswell you can see that already too many things are happening in this track for those who prefer "hypnotic tools". Utopia is too melodic for them too. The dj friendliest track is "target" even though it doesn't end with a dj friendly kick for one minutes
Well it's a an album ... a great one for people like me.
