DCR 04 CD
"Hamburg musician Tom Fleishchauer has been active as an organizer of several remarkable events, such as the Dub Conferences, or his recent house/techno club called Drift, as well as being a musician in bands like Faith Healer, Schwester Schwester, Rossburger Report (on the 4AD label), and as sound engineer to the likes of Blumfeld. Here is his debut CD on Decode recordings: 1336. It pictures musical landscapes and atmospheric impressions created by reduction and analog warmth. A very personal and emotional album, in 61 compact and homogenous minutes Relais covers the wide range from warm, organic, minimal electronic (like the melancholy opener 'Erik', a tribute to Erik Satie, or 'Rekonvaleszenz', a dark Coil-like epoch), through soulful house tunes and Detroit inspired techno, to disturbing sound scenarios like the Gescom-esque track 'Radiojet'."
