This is the debut full-length album by Berlin's Marcel Knopf. After his enchantingly kicking Dusty Dance/Rec- Chord single, Marcel Knopf presents his whole musical world and how his heart beats in it in 2009. In an interview regarding the release of his first mix CD Bits To Phono Mix in 2006, he announced: "Minimal is super, but maybe not sexy in the long run!" However, instead of augmenting minimalism with house sounds and tribal or Latin influences, Knopf prefers to focus on a straight funkiness taken from the most treasured moments of house and techno without making his tracks overly romantic or misty-eyed. Sure he digs in deeply, but what matters to him is a seductive dance music that will work today and tomorrow. Revival and recurrence -- he has everything under control and works with classic essences within a modern narrative of electronic dance music, whose evolution has lasted for over 20 years now. Thanks to his interest in diverse electronic sounds, this album is perfectly-produced, with an unexpected capriciousness and genre-overlapping consciousness that is self-confident and innovative. There is a deep, dry crispness to this work that is made for strobe-light, rather than candle-light. Featuring guest appearances by Camara and Padberg.
