"It's a really clever go lucky move that the never resting Glückskind founders Michael Klang and Jürgen Kirsch got Samuel Knob on board. The Valencia-based producer really knows how twist those knobs... to come up with the craziest noises. His skills, honed during his residency times at Barraca Music and Narita Club, are perfectly put into use with this crafty release that should have people dancing on the roof tops -- naked. Samuel, a drummer who jumpstarted his musical career at the age of sixteen in a pop-rock band, is exploring the outer realms of percussive beats, incorporated in a tight yet not at all minimal sounding house construct. Inspired by his father who is also a drummer and programmer, he does not hesitate to foray into unknown dimensions, making this eleventh Glückskind release a very special piece of black gold: Samuels tracks resonate the unrest and disquietude of someone who is longing to break through. The A side is simply to die for: With gripping African chants which wave in and out of the fidgety, compellingly percussive track, 'Pintoresco' conjures a whole movie, not just images. Jazzy snippets and funky filters complete the picturesque, erm, picture. 'Makanie' on the flip is like an even more extensive excursion into the same dimensions. Extremely wobbly beats are combined with the finest filtered jazz trumpet sounds while hypnotic African incantations take over. The true stunner of the record is safely stashed away on the last half of the B side: an amaaaaaazing work-out that offers the same elements stripped down to the core but that's what makes it even richer. Rich like 'Chocolate.'"
