<I>Technoir</I> is bright, shimmering tech-house from one of the masters, Lars Sandberg -- better known here as Funk D’Void. The synths are clean and sharp, and the beats are dancefloor-ready. But what elevates this album above other is the careful songcraft. Instead of simply looping the same melody, Sandberg varies the sounds, so that they never grow stale. Thus, “Martian Love Dance” has a melodic shift halfway through, while “Herbie on Rhodes” has a jazzy feel to it. “Bad Coffee,” on the other hand, is an aggressive thumper; “Dope Lullaby” goes more mellow; and “Angelic Upstart,” more shiny tech-house, is one of my favorite tracks on here. “V-Ger” delivers more wiggling vibes that you’ve come to love. The second disc, a live cd, is just icing on the cake. So go ahead and dig in!

First Techno album I really liked from the time I began to explore house genres other than hardcore ;). This album has so many diverse tracks you can listen to it dayly. The tracks are well arranged and even after twenty times you can still hear new tings and things. Good funky melodic techno with nice atmosphere. Love it!
