I'm listening to 'Marbles' and I really can't distinguish it from an earlier release called 'Krackpot'. I'm either getting two tracks confused here or they're the same track....hold on let me investigate....Well I checked and it would appear I am tripping...

Coming with a bonus one sided disc. Great pressing and true classic acid.

'Just because you love chocolate cake, you don't eat it every day'. I got to disagree, to my ears each of the numbers on display here are like high quality exotic confectioneries. I am amazed how Hawtin manages to use such minimal equipment to make such a diverse sound.

This is a great "after party" album which has a minimal gem in the track "Fuk", massive on a big sound system.

This outing ventures further out into melody and non-808, non-909 rhythms. Lasttrak is by far my dark horse here with a swingin' hip-hop beat and swervy 303 lines. What all the fuss was about Kriket is a mystery, because that's all it was: a cricket. Konception is suave as well. All in all, Hawtin injects more variety with tribal sounds, reverb, and reverse sounds in comparison to Sheet One and Recycled Plastik, using the 4/4 kick less often.

this was not what i had expected. i was really looking for filthy techno, and my heart sunk when i read on the label 'just because you love chocolate cake, you don't eat it every day'. but by the time i has listened to it right through i had come around to the slow chilled percussive charms, and now really like listening to it at the end of the night when the hours for filthy techno have long since past....

For Musik, the second full-length album in the Plastikman series, producer Richie Hawtin returned to everything that had made Sheet One so successful, crafting a follow-up that is as much a sequel as it is a rewrite. Once again, he powers each track with minimal yet harsh 909 percussion and adds plenty of crazed 303 acid lines, wonderfully recreating the acid techno motifs of Sheet One. This time, however, Hawtin veers away from the pervading ambience of that album, giving Musik instead a much livelier feel, particularly toward the beginning and end of the album, where the tempos reach dancefloor intensity. The album begins with two lengthy tracks, the slow-building "Konception" and the snaking "Plastique," both of which amble on for a total of 20 highly acidic minutes. From this grand introduction, Hawtin follows with a series of shorter tracks — "Kriket," "Fuk," "Outbak," "Ethnik," "Plamastik," and "Goo" — that push the limits on what can be done with strictly percussion. This somewhat experimental middle section of Musik resembles the percussive tone of the preceding Recycled Plastik EP and its standout inclusion, "Spastik," forgoing acid lines and synth melodies in favor of multi-layered 909 percussion and little else. From here, Hawtin returns to the acid sounds of Musik's opening 20 minutes for "Marbles" and "Lasttrak," a very similar 20-minute stretch of slow-building, snaking acid techno. While the opening 20 minutes had been lively and energetic, these closing 20 minutes are foreboding and dark, even downright chilling at times. Taken as a whole, Musik masterfully covers all aspects of the minimal techno spectrum, from acidic anthems to ultra-minimal explorations and back, in the process showcasing Hawtin's staggering command of the Roland 303 and 909 drum machines as well as his brilliant grasp of album-level continuity.
