"Who do we have here? Superdiver and Starpitcher? Or Pitchdiver and Superstar? Come on now silly, of course it's Superpitcher and Stardiver! A brilliant double comeback on Kompakt Extra. While Aksel Schaufler's last release on Speicher was 'Speicher 9' in 2003, Stardiver we've heard but a peep from in close to 15 years. These facts and numbers are becoming disdainful so let's move on... 'Enzian,' after 'Heroin' and 'Mushrooms,' seamlessly fits within Superpitcher's intoxicating theme-park. Many will be surprised and ask: 'Why? Enzian is but just a small flower'. That is precisely why it has to be explained here: according to Pliny the Elder, Gentian is named after Gentius (180-68 bc), the king of Illyria, is said to have discovered its healing properties. But the border between use and misuse is, as generally known, quickly overstepped. They also say the Gentian Schnaps has magic power...Stardiver is Jörg Burger -- the Modernist's millionth pseudonym. Appropriately the track is called 'Borderline'. That is to say that the borderline-syndrome is a personality disorder. Borderline personality disorder (bpd) is defined within psychiatry, and some other fields, as a disorder characterized primarily by emotional dysregulation, extreme 'black and white' thinking in some areas, and disrupted relationships. The name originated with the idea that individuals exhibiting this type of behavior were on the 'borderline' between neurosis and psychosis. But like we care, as long as such music can come out of it. 'Borderline' is blazing and is chugging like a freshly polished steamship. Ahoy."
