- Are the individual tracks available anywhere? These are some of the best.
- I can't believe there was never a review on Discogs for this album! Three years later and I still find myself coming back to it and enjoying it as much as when I first got it. While I've been a fan of Stephan Laubner since his 1999 "Sommerpause" 12", this album is his crowning achievement in my opinion. I'll admit that is a biased statement since I don't care for drone/ambient material, nor have I heard everything he has done but dub techno is just a my preferred genre.
The album title states it clear; this is Laubner honing in a clearly defined genre and nailing it without a glitch. What's more surprising is how the entire album is a constant MIX; tracks blend seamlessly without sounding like a DJ set, but rather a full composition with different movements. Fans of the usual dub techno camp (Deepchord, Basic Channel, Quantec, yaddah yaddah) will be pleased. Reverberating chords, swirling ambient textures and hiss, the whole nine yards... This album is a timeless masterpiece.
