Double-vinyl-only reissue of the now o/p Rather Interesting CD release. "As the name suggests, Dos Tracks :) seems to be dealing with the concept of 'tracks'. Simplicity is the key, as a DOS computer would only be capable of in today's home supercomputer driven world. Each song sounds as if it is constructed of two (dos) tracks, that is, two distinct lines of rhythm and only Schmidt can achieve 'music' through such minimalism and make a statement at the same time. Dos Tracks :) is sort of coming back to this musical theme for a last time before leaving the 90´ies. This album is a masterful interpretation of the soon to be obsolete machines this era represented by Schmidt in the form of digital pureness with a heavy glitch factor. Influenced by the internet, ASCII art, machine interfaces and various other 'end of 90´s technology' artifacts and philosophies, this product stands out in it´s unique structure and sound. From the monochrome 'Asciied' to clustered titles such as '1E.wav' and 'www.pringles.com', Dos Tracks :) shows us the cool face of Atom Heart. You won´t hear a single melody, no vocals, no emotions, no cheesiness and no humour on this album. Just pure binary neo-minimalism. Previously released only on compact disc through Atom Heart's Rather Interesting label, Schematic proudly presents Dos Tracks :) on double vinyl because of it's inherent grooviness. Enjoy and destroy."
