2012 repress, originally released 2007. This is the second full-length release from Bonn-based DJ, producer and park ranger, Dominik Eulberg. The influence of nature (bird twitters, owl hoots, flowing water, crunching leaves) and other domestic sounds has made his music easy to identify with. "Heimische gefilde" means "native habitat," and this release takes the concept of his debut a step further and at the same time is a retrospective of his major hits. Tracks like "Die Rotbauchunken vom Tegernsee" and "Björn Borkenkäfer" are included here in unreleased edits that are even stronger than the originals, and as a bonus, previously vinyl-only track "Der Alpenstrandläufer von Spiekeroog" is now included on CD for the first time. Dominik Eulberg's music is much more than just a straight bass drum enriched with samples. Heimische Gefilde fully realizes Eulberg's pledge to mend contradictory parts of a whole: every track is presented, each animal is introduced by Dominik expressed in a lyrical, almost poetic form, ala old school National Geographic narrator. The album culminates in "Stelldichein des Westerwälder Vogelchores," a track that is definitely techno, but techno that is roused to life through its protagonists: 100% birds only, with no effects or additives. The first "acoustic" techno track ever.
