Receiving Data...Ah It's Coming!
Sender label comp, featuring: Carsten Jost, WeltZwei, Metope, T. Raumschmiere, Jake Fairley, Baby Ford, Maetrik, Misc., Sten, etc. "Ready to receive data, we copy. Ok, here's the text: Sender records has been beaming since 1999 with a techno-signal. Sound package 30: 2 formats with 13 digital files and 8 analog pieces from different sources. 5 of them are from new users. All in all they are compatible with one another. End. Data registered, thank you for the message. Response is as follows. Sender is on a new level. It remains fully suitable for the club, however the tracks on Receiving Data...Ah It's Coming! increasingly reveal atmosphere and narrative strength: dance music has never been so home-listenable. Sender embodies not a condition but rather a development. It is as tight stylistically as the concrete base of the tower on its logo. The clear thread, however, lies far away from lay generic commodification. The artists revolt in The shadow of the tower by showing their sharp profile. 'Strahler' pulses with dark showers and static loads. Blome & Grummich are completely inside the signal searching for a release just before the short out. Carsten Jost's 'Lake's Camp' seems rather easy and swingin'. The sun pervades the clouds, the light breaks through the last rain drops that drip down the glass facade. Yes, the music of Sender incorporates urbanity with the tower being its highest symbol. There is enough of the continuous big city cess-pool and industrial romance. This compilation sounds sensible as if representing humanized music. It is best to look out from the observatory platform of the city and hear this (second) Sender panorama. This a machine indeed: still rustling, crackling, and sharpened like sand in the engine of the tower's rotating restaurant."
