    With GOOD FRIDGE, FLOWING, Thomas Fehlmann migrates from R&S Records to its ambient sister, Apollo, though the beats haven’t entirely dissipated. Instead, they become the backing for more tracks, from the breaks with smooth refractions of “Superfruhstuck” to the light, airy breaks which help “Zauberwort” float. But he also explores soundscapes too, like the rubbery “Hermosa” or the twittering “Baratti.” The layered, contrasting spoken samples of “6ix Days” bounce off the submarine pings and antiqued patina of “Wee Wee Mademoiselle.” “Cuddle’ is as effortless as a giggle, and “Teufel” is less hellish and more spare and open. “Dingo” twinkles as it eyes your baby, while “Luster” gets lost in its mysterious buzz. Some of Fehlmann’s earlier works find their way here too: “Face the Day,” which originally appeared on the TRANCE EUROPE EXPRESS compilation under Fehlmann’s Readymade guise, is a shiny piece of listening techno, while “Schizophrenia” is a fluttering flute-driven piece, edited to about half its length. Indeed with the short musical jaunts, like the jazzy “Unisize,” the whirling “Globus,” or the world radio-inspired “Kufi & Nashi,” it’s clear that this album is meant to be a journey, but it’s not necessarily a cohesive one. Instead, it’s one with some interesting stops on the way.

      Listening to this album is an almost disorientating experience, such is it's musical scope and vision. Fehlmann clearly has a wide and varied taste in music and brings a dizzying array of sounds into this release while somehow making it work as a coherent whole. Overall the mood is bright and optimistic, expansive and deep. The sounds multilayered and complex yet still accessible. Genre-wise there are elements of IDM, dub, techno, ambient, trance, orchestral music yet absolutely no signs of the cliches or formulas employed by artists in those fields. The sign of a great album is how well it stands up to repeated listens and it's hard to image ever getting bored of this. I agree with kompressorkanonen, the standout track is Face The Day. I first heard it on the Trance Europe Express compilation from 1993 and it stood out even on that classic release against artists like The Black Dog, Bandulu and Orbital. This is an essential release for any electronic collection and one of the finest albums of the 90s.

        Much more accessible than its cryptic subtitle, "Good Fridge" is sweet as a nut. This is freeform, jazzy electronic listening music which is fairly inobtrusive, but Fehlmann's deft musicianship and production skills keep it from becoming aural wallpaper. The highlight is the absolutely gorgeous "Face the Day", which is one of my favourite pieces of music in any genre and a tour de force of ambient techno; playful, bittersweet and timeless, this is the quintessential Fehlmann track. Unfortunately, the mix here is an edited version.
