This is the first full-length album on Desolat by renowned German composer and producer Martin Buttrich. The album is a compilation of tracks, picked from among many works the artist has created at his Hannover studio and various spaces worldwide. Crash Test is an organic sequence of shifting moods to sublimate existing minimal house or techno paradigms. The album is shaded with bass weight: a reflective, meandering interpretation of the grooves that have always inspired Buttrich: echoes of hip-hop, jazz, reggae and soul. Emotive tangents hover, punctuated with found sounds and textures recorded in public spaces. The album contains more acoustic and analog instruments than Martin Buttrich usually uses, and attempts to bridge a gap between imagined and audible worlds. First pressing includes a download code for a digital version of the album, including 2 additional tracks only available on the CD version.
