This is the debut full-length release by Hamburg-based producers Christian de Jonquières and Frederic Moering-Sack aka Piemont. It's not only their five EPs on MBF and two huge hits which made Piemont decide to record an album, rather, it is their consistency throughout their remixes and releases on other labels as well. They refuse to compromise on style or quality, and the result is Strange World Beyond -- dedicated to the deep sea. The tracks "Carbonat" and "Black Smoker" catapulted Piemont onto many charts and DJ lists and established their unique and outstanding sound. They have been supported heavily in the past by Richie Hawtin, DJ Hell, Dubfire, John Digweed, Deep Dish, Carl Cox, Oliver Koletzki, Oliver Huntemann and more. The duo are not a product of the minimal techno of now, but have been with the scene for much longer, being influenced by advanced technology and sound design as well as the history of electronic music. The duo has a gift for modern sound design fused with a fantastic sense for funky beat programming and a good intuition for clubby moments, developed by their live appearances and gigs. For Piemont, a track is never finished. The doubt of never being able to live up to the ideal of "the perfect song" is a source of creativity for them, keeping them striving for more interesting arrangements and sounds. That Piemont's background is not solely a techno one but includes many influences they can draw on, can be witnessed by their sympathy for different musical styles on this album. Strange World Beyond creates funky rocking moments of clubbiness with tracks such as: "Eyeshine," "Strange World Beyond," "Lighter Than Seawater" and "Talk Flows Like A River," and also includes their hits "Carbonat" and "Black Smoker."
