Jens Strüver and Robert Ohm team up for an exciting electronic endeavor that begins with a nod to Kraftwerk (“Musique Electronique”) takes a detour to the dance floor (“Sundance”) and closes with the solemn epics “Nakamura” and “Regen”. There’s really not a bum note here although the duo seems most alive during pieces such as “City Jungle” and “Sundance”. Smart, but not esoteric, listenable but adventurous, this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, the emergence of a refreshing voice in the world of electronic music, one that we can only hope to hear from more in the future.
