LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Ever since the sound of Cologne emerged in the mid-'90s, the name Jörg Burger works as a synonym for beauty in techno. His elegant yet propulsive sequence-driven techno under guises like The Modernist or Stardiver has become a force of its own. For his second release under his real name on Kompakt's dinghy K2, he deflates his trademark pop appeal in favor of darker tendencies -- which, as we all know, works perfectly in clubs. It's what scary movies, roller coasters and techno have in common: the more nasty it gets the better! But Jörg Burger wouldn't be our friend if he'd just let us stand in the cold dark. On the flipside, he gently turns up the radiator and reminds us that its predecessor Polyform 1 is actually one of the most touching neo-deephouse tracks ever written."
