"It's bubbling, it's boiling -- so we must add fuel to the fire. Markus Güntner's cover version of Talk Talk's 'Such A Shame' on his Forget Sandra maxi has turned out to be a nice little club-hit -- and that calls for remixes. The Swayzak mix sheds light upon the darker sides of the original, creating a super-deep mood, perhaps best described as 'trembling'. This is surely what is known as 'magic', or in the best sense, 'trance' (as pronounced in French). Mathias Schaffhäuser picked exactly four elements from approximately 372 tiny fragments of Güntner's version, putting together a functional minimal-rocker track, showing once again that less can be just as much as minimal yet somehow acid. Markus himself tucks the beats under a warm eiderdown, then adds the hot-water bottle. Any Kompakt fan will know that this lad from Regensburg is a master of ambient music, and this record will tell a good three million more at least."
