[DCR0014] ANGELO FONFARA - MENSCHEN UND MASCHINEN
Breakbeat/Brokenbeat/Dub | 11.08.2013

Angelo Fonfaras first album release on Dirty Cat Records is a complex, intelligent thought out album, imaginative, witty and prompts you to think different about things. He combines masterful beats and percussions with pumpy basses, let flash here and there some guitar- and synthesizer sounds and surprises you again and again once more with fizzy funny and yet still profound texts. A mixture of breakbeat and dub with influences from his krautrock background and a pinch of sarcasm. A fine album for the summer for dancing, chilling and chuckling.

Hyricz (Melodica Netlabel/Seta Label/Sumo Juice) - Nice tracks, will listen to them and choose some cool.
Bandzius (Suffused Music) - Nice album1. 
Mike Murphy (Spinnin' House) - Track 3 is really nice! 9 as well is more likely to fit into my sets these days, but everything sounds well done, i like the keys, synths and especially guitars.

 

"Der Raum ist digital, die Zeit ist optimal!, heißt es im Track "Raum und Zeit". Ein Satz ohne Sinn, der aber irgendwie klug klingt. Und im Kontext des Albums "Menschen und Maschinen" lässt sich wunderbar darüber diskutieren, ob nicht doch eine Message im Nonsens steckt. Angelo Fonfara spiet intelligent mit elektronischen Tönen und analoger Sprache. Ein dubbiger Trip durch den Wahnsinn des Alltags.
