"Hooray For Everything is Tobias Schmidt's 4th solo album. Since 1996 he has released several EPs for Telepathic, Sativae, Drought, Mosquito, Scandinavia and Tresor while playing his live pa globally. His previous albums include Dark Of Heartness , Le Chimp Atomique and Destroy. Schmidt's musical career started in Scotland 10 years ago, mixing with the likes of Neil Landstrumm and Dave Tarrida (and many others...) while they all worked to get their studios and clubs off the ground. Moving to Brighton in 1999 brought fresh influences, not least from the No Future crowd (Cristian Vogel, Jamie Liddel, Super_Collider and others) and provoked the birth of Schmidt's own label Nest as an outlet for broader scoped electronic music. Hooray For Everything sees a change of direction for Schmidt, moving into more 'musical' territory while keeping a 'techno'-intensity and concentration. The eleven tracks on this album, including 2 cover versions -- Throbbing Gristle's 'Hot On The Heels Of Love' and more surprisingly the Delfonics soul-classic 'Ready Or Not (Here I Come)'), mix a massive synthesizer attack with driving robo-funk drums to create a broody and dark electronic soul music with futuristic city-at-night-feel, both listenable to at home and playable in the clubs."
