Baumann / Koek: s/t

Baumann / Koek: s/t

Yet another astonishing Berlin-school reissue from Bureau B. The Baumann here is not Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream (who actually does have a forthcoming album on the label) but Wolfgang Baumann, along with Ata Koek. The extended sequencer fantasies on this album immediately catch the ear with rapidly flashing arpeggios, which accelerate at some points, increasing the excitement. Ata Koek is Turkish, so there’s a tiny hint of Middle Eastern melodies, but you might not notice if you’re not really paying attention. Final track “Sequencer Roll” is a short ditty with a blues chord progression; while most of the album seems like it’s gazing up at the stars, this one’s setting its sights on a railroad track in Mississippi.
