Double LP version. This is Germany-based electro artist/producer Anthony Rother's fervently anticipated second album on his artistic platform, Datapunk. The first track "Nature" immediately confronts with two diametrically opposed concepts: can one compare the wild aesthetic of nature with the virtually fabricated beauty from the world of supermodels? And where do the psychoactive, rocking electric guitars actually come from? But have no fear, Super Space Model is an uninhibited further development of his highly-acclaimed 2004 album Popkiller, continuing the theme of reciprocal communication and interchange between techno and electro into a new hybrid, which has defined the global sound of the clubs in the last two years like nothing else. And whoever has followed this tonal development (at least in intonations) knows about the outstanding significance of Rother's work in general -- and his Datapunk label in particular -- for the triumphant advance of electro in modern times. The tracks on Super Space Model emerged completely on analogous syntheses in a vast number of feverish, steamy club nights. As Rother himself states, "This time I deliberately decided in favor of analog instruments during the selection of tonal means. Of course, Datapunk flirts with the idea of digitalization as a notion, but the 'punk' ultimately stands above all for artistic freedom. This is also why I see no contradiction here." Tracks such as "Nature" and "Don't Worry," take up rather unusual and intense electro themes in the context of the club, alongside playfully improvised synthesized lines as in "Space Rock." And of course, also included are typically-Datapunk dance floor fillers that ride far far beyond 2006 into the future sound of techno.
