After their very well-received 2010 work In G, Borngräber & Strüver have not been resting on their laurels. Here, they extend the concept of "21th century electro motorik Kraut" on the album Urlaub and added their preference for disco music. As a friend of the label said: "'Reise' sounds like a composition for the 20th birthday of Carl Craig's Planet E." Borngräber & Strüver have consistently worked on developing their minimalist compositions without taking into consideration conventions. The nearly 17-minute "Reise" that starts with extreme restraint, grows into a groovy trip you can hardly escape. "Berlin Tribal Music" has a radically minimalist approach and a surprising break that sounds like a portal to a parallel dimension. The last part of the album "Dancing Queen" has nothing to do with ABBA -- the piece is a missing link between electronic h-pop and groovy club sounds.
