Beatboxer, lyricist and singer Mark Boombastik finally releases his album Adiós Berlin, produced with Eduardo Delgado Lopez (bass guitar and more). No more pseudonyms, no frills, but intimacy between sense and nonsense: a grand record. Adiós Berlin is champagne and unpaid rent. It is love and hate -- it is a conviction and an absolution of the possibility to be different, to live differently. It is the mainstream suitability of the peculiar, like cooking without a recipe. It is tomato stains in a kitchen, scratches on a record, scars on a shin. It is a swan song and a new beginning. An album like a speech, between a cappella and beatbox, punk and rough cut -- techno and experiments for a special audience. Tracks like "Funkgeraet" and "Arbeit" whir more like they're in love than in danger. "1000" and "Hitze" sound like waking up after a big night and declaring a state of emergency. These guys got to know and love each other while raising their glasses to their common fondnesses for music, records, art, and architecture. Mark Boombastik has worked as a human beatbox and singer with the likes of Angie Reed, Funkstörung, Khan, Fischmob, Patric Catani, Felix Kubin, Max Goldt and many more . Eduardo Delgado Lopez has played with everyone who is anyone, but is especially known for playing bass with the Caspar Brötzmann Massaker. His radical, minimal and sequential playing seems to be made for Mark Boombastik's sharp beat(boxing). Adiós Berlin captures a lunatic zest for life.
