i have not picked up the box yet, but i plan to asap.
the real reason i am posting here is that i am listening to the awesome [las vegas] right now and damn if this one doesn't need the deluxe treatment as well. anyone know the story behind the title?

Not sure where to even start with this one. Everyone here at aQ, heck almost everyone we know loves Gas, the blissed out minimal ambient techno project of Mr. Wolfgang Voigt. But don't let the word 'techno' scare you off, as the music of Gas can easily win over the most ardent techno-phobes. The techno element in the sound of Gas is only a tiny part of Voigt's magical soundworld, often just a shadow, a distant heartbeat like pulse, sometimes more pronounced, but usually just a murky throb or a rhythmic murmur, the music of Gas is Gauzy and shimmery, blurred and softly buzzy, it's like an even more dreamlike Oval, or perhaps Porter Ricks crossed with Labradford, or Tim Hecker recording a record for Chain Reaction.

anyone know if the grungerman/wassermann versions of "fakeln im sturm" differ from each other in anyway?

Oh man, the first Gas album is so good. This is like my platonic ideal for wintery droney techno.

Mohn, the latest collaboration by Wolfgang Voigt and Jörg Burger, will release its first album in April.
Mohn's self-titled debut album has a style that is quintessentially Burger and Voigt, combining elements of ambient, krautrock and experimental techno. It will be their first album together since [Las Vegas], their 1996 effort under the name Burger/Ink.

I saw the debut Mohn performance in January! It was outstanding - the highlight of CTM festival. Psyched for the ablum.

It's great that WV is releasing more music these days, his productions were scarce during Kompakt's "golden age" or w/e
― riding on a cloud (blank), Thursday, 8 March 2012 02:19 (1 year ago) Permalink
This sounds exciting! IMO Jörg Burger is the better producer of the two, but Las Vegas did have an unique quality that isn't there in Burger's other work (he's more of romantic, compared to Voigt's formalism), so hopefully they can catch that again.

this album is fucking fantastic

Mohn, that is
It's nice, but where are the bloody beats?! I'm not saying it should be a dance record, but clearly it's not a pure ambient record either, so I think some good beats would've made it better. Also, while I liked "Ebertplatz 2020", I didn't expect the whole album to sound the same; everything is in the same, slowed down druggy tempo, it gets a bit boring after a while. Even though Las Vegas wasn't a dance album either, it had a good kinetic quality that this one is kinda lacking. It feels like Mike Ink's contribution to this was bigger than with Las Vegas (which doesn't sound that different from Jörg Burger's albums of the era, just more experimental), which isn't necessarily a good thing.

combining elements of ambient, krautrock and experimental techno
this more or less sums it up, tho i question how meaningful "techno" is in this context. it's a darker record than Burger/Ink, but the same dubby dancefloor propulsion is there, it's just a couple of hours later and everybody's nodding asleep and the rhythm is a throb at the back of yr head
― like Joe Pasquale and Gandhi (Noodle Vague), Friday, 4 May 2012 08:35 (1 year ago) Permalink
like the rhythm is the halfway between motorik and dub and yr internal dj
― like Joe Pasquale and Gandhi (Noodle Vague), Friday, 4 May 2012 08:36 (1 year ago) Permalink
TBH, I don't hear any Krautrock there, and I definitely think the lack of propulsion is the biggest problem with the album. (And I'm not necessarily saying there should be your regular drum machine sounds there, you can have propulsion without them too, as Pole has proven.) Take "Saturn", for example: you have a looping 303 riff and some cool housey strings, so for the first 2 or so minutes you expect the drums to kick in, but they never do... All you get is some free jazz percussion noodling, and as much as I love that kind of stuff in actual free jazz, it doesn't really make sense as the only drum sound in a track that's otherwise techno.

apart from maybe the first track this thing pulses along just like Burger/Ink imo but i'm aware we have apparently different ear alignment :p

<i>Rückverzauberung 6</i> is worth tracking down: it's not quite a return to Gas, but it's certainly a move in that direction, creepy ambience.
