I would say that this is as seminal as Skam's 'Skampler' comp. I've gone on to buy records by every single artist on it without exception. In some cases these are the best tracks i've heard by the artists.

This release also got me into several other labels (merck, onrecords, etc).

You really should buy this release if you have any interest in electronic music.

Xela's submission "Streetlevel" is a profoundly gorgeous track, downbeat yet hopeful, a very delicate balance executed with such unqualifiable and unquantifiable finesse. Serious talent.

Also check out the "My Rap" and "Soul in the Machine" remixes on Merck's Dosage sampler, very intelligent arrangement on "My Rap", wonderful sense of timing. Dropping a comedically snide sample before a major tempo and voice transition at the track's structural halfway point evokes a knowing smirk.

"Are you crazy or plain stupid?"
"Neither of the two, I think I'm quite smart... in fact, a genius."
"Genius? You're kidding... You're the dumbest person that I've ever met."

Genius all the way Mr. Twells. More please.

MAS Confusion stands out in my collection of electronix as one of smooth dexterity. Not only does it delight the ears with varying moods and flavors, but it does so with steady ease. This compilation makes flipping the plates though four sides more than worthwhile.

"When Don and Roel Funcken, the two brothers from Funckarma, were on a visit at my place, they discovered two enormous boxes of demos that had drifted in over the years. In response to the question of what I wanted to do with all the tapes and CDs, all I could say is: Dunno, put together some kind of 'Future Talent Compilation' sometime, 'cos at the moment I've no time to release EPs and albums on Musik Aus Strom, so I certainly don't have any time to listen to all this... All Don said to this was: Let us do it, we've got to be able to put together a decent compilation from these demos. It's a shame, anyway, that Musik Aus Strom barely releases anything...said...done...;-)

"MAS Confusion" doesn't only include tracks from the demo boxes, Don also managed to mobilize a few of his friends to write new tracks for "MAS Confusion" total, from the 12 tracks, 11 are previously unreleased. Funkstörung then chose the final track listing...a few tracks were scrapped 'cos they just didn't work with the overall feeling: Almost all the tracks a relatively relaxed and listenable, mainly without excessive programming and really melodic. A little old school but nevertheless very modern...Mr Projectile puts it best, perhaps, with his track title: Less math, more music!" - Michael Fakesch (of funkstorung)
