"Friday night? The party? In this case it can only mean total confusion at Cologne's Studio 672, where for 2 years Tobias Thomas and his back-in-the-days friend Michael Mayer are hosting Cologne's most kicking club night. But the musical happenings here are quite the opposite of unwinding: in a long decade behind the turntables Thomas and Mayer have specialised in winding up the floor with precise techno. And what would otherwise take 6 or 7 hours is compressed into 70 minutes on Tobias Thomas' mix CD. After a short opener from Jochen Distelmeyer's second album with Blumfeld, the first healing chords of Lali Puma warm up the ceremony. Contemplatively sleepwalking between his own Cologne biotype (Boris Kauer, Dettinger, Wolfgang Voigt), Berliners and Leipzigers (Paul DB, Gamat 3000), and various others (Baby Ford, Vladislav Delay, Nick Holder, Fumiya Tanaka), no track here seems to be without a personal relation. And this seems to be a central theme running through the work of Thomas. Every track in this set is also a private memory of a mood that ruled in its moment or context, or even got generated through it. Great DJs, it's said, possess the ability of turning other people's records into theirs -- to project their own emotions on someone else's music. And that's an idea that builds to a perfect line communication for a DJ and head like Tobias Thomas, especially on a Friday night. The epilogue of his trip through the width and depth of his record case naturally leads to Tobias' own productions (like the ones with his group Forever Sweet). And here we have Stereolove, produced with Michael Mayer. Finally things are allowed to unwind a little. For DJ Tobias, it's all a question of the build-up: and so when he plays the sound is not only architectional, it also sounds spiritual."
