Two years after his stunning debut Here Today Gone Tomorrow, Fritz Kalkbrenner takes the next huge step in his career with his second album Sick Travellin'. Coming hot on the heels of his Suol Mates (SUOL 004CD) compilation, a mixtape infused with an eclectic variety of genres -- from soul to funk, from hip-hop to house, Fritz now takes all these influences and ideas, fusing them together into a sound that is ever so powerful and distinctively his own. The 13 tracks on this album, produced in the only-recently finished Suol-Studios in Berlin Kreuzberg, have a more organic, mature sound than those on the debut. More vocals, more live instruments like Rhodes, bass and guitar, recorded by some of the best studio musicians around, and Fritz's trademark grainy, "breathing" samples. Sick Travellin' playfully guides the listener from bittersweet melancholy and classical songwriting to loose, dreamy dancefloor moments. Vocal tracks like "Get a Life," "Little By Little," "No Peace of Mind," and last, but definitely not least, his cover version of Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing" once again showcase Fritz Kalkbrenner's extraordinary talent as a vocalist and his incredible gift for embedding pop songs into beautifully-crafted house music frames. But that's not all: the album's more forward tunes like "Square Heart," "Monte Rosa," or the club anthem "Hummin' Hills" will trigger waves of euphoria on dancefloors all around the globe. Includes an 8-page booklet.
