"21st century electronic Krautrock" is perhaps the best description for the album In G, on which Berlin's Borngräber & Strüver skillfully recombine the influences of motorik Kraut and the achievements of minimal techno to their own musical statements. There is no trance bliss or party sound, only condensed musical statements. It was in 1999 when Borngräber & Strüver met at Ninetynine Records in Berlin. Since then, they have worked together on musical projects. Their first release EP on the UK label Blue Juice polarized many and was soon followed by remixes for artists like A Guy Called Gerald and Beth Hirsch. Their debut album Transcontinental featured dark Blade Runner-inspired atmospheres and fine electro beats meeting dub effects and surprising breaks. On this album, Borngräber & Strüver blend guitars, vocals and horns in a particular way, almost evoking a hidden soundtrack for your mental cinema.
