Based in Geneva, Switzerland, producers Crowdpleaser & St-Plomb have delivered a groundbreaking album for Mental Groove Records imprint MGLTD. Both well-traveled DJs now also have a growing list of productions as well as remixes to their credit and their friendship allowed the ambitious and futuristic vision of 2006 to develop over 11 titles. Also featuring fellow Swiss residents Kate Wax, Paris The Black Fu, St├ęphane Perrinjaquet and Kalabrese, it's a demonstration of mastery fusing old school techno and house with forward-thinking sound design and depth of feeling. Opening and ending with majestic ambient-experimental tones, the album also features the quirky, jazzy "Cash On Time" with Kate Wax in top form, and "Shift" with a truly surreal vocal by Paris The Black Fu. The seven other tracks go beyond the insect-like, naturalistic but abstract and nerdy sounds of microhouse to reveal a new, playful musique concrete techno whose sound effects seem to be produced or from everyday objects with a tragic, purposefully clumsy human touch we can all relate to. Thomas Brinkmann also brought his mastering skills to the equation. This record skips levels in the game. It's like a funky robot with real tears of joy and sorrow. This record doesn't have a care in the world. It boldly goes where few others have. This record makes you more intelligent even as you dance -- and dance you will. This record knows.
