With his new album What's Fruit, Schlammpeitziger touches the dancefloor more than ever before in his 22-year long career. Yet his dancefloor is a playful one. The Cologne-based composer's sounds electrify with their multi-layered melodic structures. He weaves countless details to perfection into a high-density of musical activity, always focusing on the slow, driving beats which hold everything together. Each of the eight tracks represents shades of the unique humor we love about Schlammpeitziger: the tricky question about what are those things we call fruit, or his mantric German lyrics on "Schneid ein Stuck aus der Zeit" are charming messages which never fail to be heard in the guise of those lovely synth hooks. This new Schlammpeitziger disco has its source in a situation which does not quite promise relaxed creativity: in the past year Schlammpeitziger's studio in Cologne has been surrounded by construction-work. Locked up in his private space between massive hums, squealing saws, and pulsating jackhammers, he delivers this relaxed album. It comes across with the freshness of a debut work. Contrary to his previous records, which had been mostly made with analog synths, this album was produced with iPad synths 90% of the time, before taking the mixes to Stefan Mohr's (ex-member of the band Workshop) mixing console.
