Oriental Dreams/Shisha Deluxe
"The second new publication on Soap Records was written by the duo of Alex Flatner & Crazy Erg, who produced two different pieces for Soap. The Munich-based Alex Flatner was at the beginning of the null years, successful and involved with the project Flatner & Ingram, among others, with releases on Black Nation and Paraso. He appeared solo on the label Circle Music. Crazy Erg is primarily known as DJ Urgestein from the Rhein Neckar area. However, he has already published his production skills down to a considerable list of smaller labels. On 'Oriental Dreams,' the two publicize techno in an exceedingly charming way. The bass line marches straight but does not hit the twelve, the melodies are distinctive but not in a weepy trance. Doubtless, a piece made for peak -ime. On the contrary, 'Shisha Deluxe' is based on a groove, carried light-footed by the bass line and the drums. A charming techno-house track, applicable universally."
