Sauerkraut 08:05


Dortmund debuts with a four-track EP titled ‘Sauerkraut’ featuring a remix from Christian Tilt.

Returning to the label since providing a track on PLOINK’s 20th anniversary release "96-16#3" last year, hardware specialist Dortmund, real name Karl Markus Zavodny, is also well known for releases on Montreal’s Turbo and Leipzig’s Vocabula Recordings.

"Sauerkraut" opens the release with rolling synthetic percussion that builds into an earworm groove, laced with chattering hats in tandem with echoing claps and fueled by a vibrant acid loop. "Acid Over Oslo" then motors along, utilising a razor-sharp 303 line within the frame of a crisp drum machine riff with a warmly distorted glow.
Christian Tilt then morphs "Sauerkraut" into an energetic pulsating cut, employing subtly swinging hats bathed in reverb before further processing the acid lead into fresh areas of the stereo field. Echoing bleeps then dissipate in "Karl Krankenhaus" underpinned by a bone shaking drum groove alongside moments of IDM tinged synthscapes and dubbed out chord stabs.
