Dachshund presents his debut album on the Berlin label Highgrade. The record is a victory for those who are tired of the sterile monotony that populates so much of the music to be found in the current scene. In each of the 11 tracks you can hear the heart and soul of a thoroughbred musician. Although Eleven Ridims is incredibly varied, from the melodic and quiet, to the pounding dancefloor killers and back, the album works as a unified whole. Perhaps this is a result of its method of creation. For Dachshund, Eleven Ridims is a unique opportunity to show another side of himself: from the path of pure dancefloor tracks through to more melodic pieces. At the same time, the album is a tribute to his musical roots. As the title suggests, Ridims is a Jamaican slang term for an instrumental track and it was the Jamaican dub of the '70s to the '90s, which as a teenager inspired the budding musician and led him, as a 15 year-old, to play guitar in a reggae band. From that point on, the music has never let him go. The reggae and dub influence of his past is still clearly evident here, as with the track "Intensity Dub," in which he brings the rough-riding and natural sound of the past back to life. Analog techniques result in distorted sounds, which radiate a unique energy. The track is very different from the standard dub techno -- a stroke of luck for Dachshund and typical of his method of making music. For Dachshund, Eleven Ridims is a new step in his career.
