"Warmth. Calm. Affection. Not unlike Kompakt style 'Ambient Pop' but still owing something to specifically German traditions such as NEU!, Popol Vuh or early Kraftwerk. Persistent. Ever onward. Then comes a beat with which we can see the passing of time. We say yes to the modern world. But then go straight back into the oxygen tank. Brain weight in meal solutions, as isolated as connected. Terry Riley takes a look at the surveillance system and presses a few relay switches. And then there's the Roxy Music cover version 'A Song For Europe', as minimal as it is monumental. Elegance and decadence, Europe endless, Melián calls Nico Päffgen back from the grave in this swansong for the new EU countries. Reality and postcard pictures. Europe endless. She is a woman with style (Stiel). She is revolutionary in the way she does not allow herself to be categorised." -- Justus Köhncke. This, Michaela Melián`s first solo album, comprises slow and uplifting melodic grooves. She uses strong yet simple beats and entrancing cello to set a relaxed mood. Two years in the making, the album from F.S.K. bassist and singer is a work of concisely crafted electronic beauty.
