Farben & James Din A4: Farben Presents James Din A4

Farben & James Din A4: Farben Presents James Din A4

Loose, casual, playful collaborative LP between Jan Jelinek’s most well-loved pseudonym, and the lesser-known but equally prolific James Din A4 (Dennis Busch). Has kind of a gritty, grainy feel to it, and occasionally some trippy rhythms (just try dancing to “Heimkehr Der Vulgaren”). Lots of stray voices trapped in the machine, and looped and processed beyond recognition or comprehension. There’s also a few bizarre beatless interludes, the oddest being the disturbing chanting of “Rettung”. “Please Excuse My Face” sounds like a microhouse track arranged with a part for dot matrix printer, with discordant noise bursts smoothed into a constant rhythm. Otherwise, lots of dubby, bubbly minimal techno which doesn’t take itself too seriously.
