Turbo Recordings present a lovingly rendered reissue of Charlotte de Witte's debut EP in black marbled vinyl. Lead track "Weltschmerz" is a Berghain classic; dark, massive, trippy, and with an emotional character all too rare within the genre. The kicks are banging, the verbed out percussion is fierce, and it all moves around a haunting melodic breakdown that artfully dances on the right side of "progressive". It's a killer track that perfectly sets the tone for the whole record. "Damage Control" is a straightforward flex-a-thon, a house-ier rhythm that struts along confidently. The technical term is "floor-filler". "Lonesome" brings the emotion back, with its super-tense, unresolved melodies, this is perfect for all your mega-club yearning and gurning needs. "Relatives of None" is the nastiest of the bunch, and probably the most at home on Turbo, built around a screechy synth hook. Finally, "Weltschmerz (Melodic Theme)" provides an epic ambient outro, crystallizing the emotional tones of the EP and establishing a sense of artistic vision that ascends well beyond the pedestrian.
