This is the second release in Statler & Waldorf's new techno-based EP trilogy of experimental dance music, called Oil on Aluminium. Experiment #2, Responge, comes from Danish producer Mikkel Meyer, a new artist in the Statler & Waldorf artist family, but certainly not a debutante. Mikkel was making radio shows for Resonance FM during a stay in London, and spent a great deal of time in the legendary (former) record shop Smallfish who released his first EP as an electronic artist on their affiliated label. The EP came out on 3" CD and sold out fast. This material and two new tracks are now available on vinyl with this Responge EP. Mikkel works from an interest in translation and conversion of sound material. Specifically, by taking bits of jazz-records, clicks and hisses from inner loops of old vinyl records and homemade gizmos, he turns his music into the most comfortable and friendly techno since Jelinek's Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records release. Most of the equipment used on this record is old broken stuff Mikkel found in dumpsters and restored to new life in his basement studio in Copenhagen. Some of it he even built from scratch. Not everything is techno on this EP: the B-side offers truly groovy jazz-dubs, and the more uptempo tracks have been left on the two-track, DJ-friendly A-side. All tracks composed and produced by Mikkel Meyer, with double-bass on "To" and "Responge" by Eva Skipper. Mixed by Thor Sørensen (Pelding) and mastered by Stefan Betke of Pole.
