FunkStorung, Additional Productions

by PopMatters Staff

 

The German electronic duo FunkStörung impressed Björk so much with their remix of “All Is Full of Love,” she initiated a signing frenzy in attempting to get them on One Little Indian Records. FunkStörung’s trademark sound typically involves extremely complex arrangements featuring more than 400 sounds/effects per song. Their brilliant compositional and remixing skills have spawned a massive army of admirers including the aforementioned Bjork and Aphex Twin.

Aphex Twin fans will be all over “Children of the Rave Solution” with its collection of scratches, abstract rhythms, and ambient soundscapes. Not content with being pure instrumentalists, FunkStörung use the human voice as an integral element in their creations, as on “Tried By 12.” At the same time, their broad experimental streak, playing with sound and synthesis, creating music from seemingly non-musical sounds, puts them in the fore-front of the new adventurous sounds of German post-techno.
