Perhaps the problem is that Zimmermann's music isn't always distinctive or oozing with individualism. He's not ripping anyone off, but nor do you instantly recognise his tracks in a way that you might with similarly talented artists, which is a real shame. Here, ‘Hey Freak’ is a surgically clean slice of minimal house which doesn't really grab the attention even if it's perfectly passable. On the flipside ‘Sequenz 31’ is a majestic and epic piece of experimental electronic music which is extremely similar to Âme’s ‘Fiori’. With its bleak washes of melody, it's a beautiful piece of night driving music, even if it does feel a bit too well studied. But overall that's the problem here, a lack of ideas to match up to the perfect sounds and production.
Ultimately, Space Migration 3000 is a frustrating listen, during which you know that with the skills he has Zimmermann should be blowing our minds, not making us nod sagely. Perhaps that day is still to come.
