"'Don't believe in nothing / don't believe nobody / don't believe in anyone / no god, no guide, no party.' Life without truth, life without faith -- try it. It works! If this seems a bit banal, you can have it backed up by Friedrich Nietzsche -- from his excellent On the Genealogy Of Morality: 'The will to truth requires critique -- let us thus define our own task -- the value of truth must for once be experimentally called into question...' Yes Please! Try it, it won't hurt. So why does something like that occur to Mathias Schaffhäuser now? The current state of the world? Hmm. yes, no, partly. The text was actually written in 1992, and was indeed influenced by Mr. Nietzsche. But the critical approach to God, ethics and truth has always been central to Schaffhäuser's way of thinking. In his opinion, contemplation and content should (once again) be brought into the focus of Techno and House -- as hard as that may be. But the music should come across without being cramped or stiff -- it's always better to have a smile on your lips, hidden by a mask. 'Truthology' is funky and mean and light on its feet at the same time. Rumpelstiltzkin philosophy, foot discourse... The B-side is called 'De:tox - Re:tox' -- and who isn't familiar with that? The morning after: 'Oh no, I will never take this or that again, from now on I will walk the path of virtue!' And one day later: 'Hey, that tastes fine, sure, lets have another one...'. Give us our daily liquid bread (or whatever). It works even better in the context of confusing dance music. Actually, you don"t really even need any toxic substances if you have warped clusters like 'De:tox - Re:tox' -- but hey, what am I talking about..."
