WE. is a well-known project these days and is presented in their other CD descriptions
already. This was Daniel and Martin’s debut album from 2000, which marked only the
second release on the then still young Genetic Music label. The CD was limited to 300
copies only and found friends in the minimal electro circles quickly so that the CD was sold
out soon and searched by quite some people. Therefore, now after 10 years and frequent
demands for a re-issue, a remastered version has been made available. WE. (by being the
more rough and more analogue side of the two who also perform as electropop act File Not
Found) is pure synthesizer bliss with lots Roland CR-78 action and other drum machines,
synthetic percussions, sequencers, and analogue blips and blops everywhere, still retaining
a certain pop feeling with room for melody and atmosphere, and fortunately they were not
restricting themselves to a ceratin style: there is pure minimal electro (“Oscillate”, “If I could
see”, “Someone outside”), slow tracks/ballads (“Ice Planet”, “Stop/Play”, “Can you touch the
Past?”, “I run for you”), minimal electropop tracks (“Invasion of a Stranger”). Definitely one
of Germany’s best electronic acts, this re-issue was more than overdue, and the remastering
was a good thing to do, so really no need to look for the original edition!
