What a great ep this is. As much as I love my techno raw and boiled, Thomas Krome’s Fried is the real gem on this ep. The masterchef shares us a glimpse on how he cooks, fries and boils in his techno kitchen. It starts out with chaotic ticking and mixed echo noises . After some time the sounds merge together very subtle. A swelling bass drum then mixes together with the other sounds and merges the flavoures perfectly. The chaotic ticks and cracklings are filtered from the start, but when the track moves on they open up more and more in a hypnotic way. Then some hi-hats, snares and a filtered kick drum are added and dinner is served! A feast for all those hungry ears, and energy for the dancing feet. At the end all the ingredients fall away one by one and the end finishes like it started. He can cook for me anytime if he is serving tracks like this.
Sad we don’t hear so much from this artist who has been very low profile since 2001.
