BRUT! RECORDS (GERMANY)
"Here comes Andreas Heiszenberger with what seems like a requiem to a past love. The track is moody, twisted, dubby and full of intense ambiguous emotions, from love to hate and from pop to abstraction. Then comes Nass aka Geiger to give the original the treatment -- and what a treatment! Surely more effective than your post-depression counselor, Nass goes for a dub techno odyssey that will make hardwax enthusiasts drop their Prozac prescription. On the flip side, one of the men of the year, Mr. Efdemin comes with the definitive solution: go deep, then stand up and dance. Efdemin presents us with a work of love, an unmistakable homage to the sound of Berlin. To finalize, Andreas Heiszenberger goes for the traditional medicine to relieve any heartache: deep house with a nod to Lowtec, Theo Parrish and the Dial ensemble. A truly perfect moment..."
"A few months after his contribution ('I Hate You') on Matthias Schaffhäuser's
, the new Cologne-based label Eventuell is proud to present the first longplayer of visual artist and electronic musician Andreas Heiszenberger from Nürnberg. Heiszenbergers concept of House might remind of Jan Jelinek's Farben and Ekkehard Ehlers
, but is also characterized by his refreshing DIY-approach, experimentalism and very own humour and, its not only because of Heiszenbergers vocals that
will suit fans of Justus Köhncke or the new Kompakt Pop series. Next to the electronic and dance tunes you'll find short, narrative interludes of soundpoetry and fieldrecordings together with his regular use of unusual samples,
defines a completely new way of compiling a longplayer in electronic music. This first edition is limited to 280 copies."
This is Germany-based
's second full-length album.
is a jewel which can already be celebrated as a small masterpiece, resembling a pop culture diary set to music in which memories and influences in all variations and origins are unified to one common denominator called house. Glimpses of his punk past shine through now and then and for some the exclusive use of fruit loops as a means of production is punk enough. Heiszenberger shows consideration for disparate genres with a decided lack of stringency. The vision of house which Andreas Heiszenberger so virtuously has called his own has something timeless about it so that the sound also functions perfectly outside clubs. He gives this record the right dose of pop and harmony that is soulful rather than lulling, taking special care to place the appropriate beat and tempo, making for a professional and enthralling arrangement. Sometimes it rattles and clicks from one end to the other just like the good old Warp days when abodes in Detroit, Chicago and Frankfurt were at least musically credible. His debut album on Normoton
Drum and Bass
released in 2005 was filled with flawless, catchy house of the minimal type and honored by the international press. It has taken two years for the completion of this follow-up which wasn't due to an artist's block -- rather, quite the opposite. Heiszenberger's own very unique style of contemporary house music has just the right hint of pop. Detroit meets Frankurt/Offenbach meets Sheffield meets Cologne.
