On this new SOWASVON release Ralf Boehler takes the listener on a journey from melancholia to the rarified corners of the universe. Apart builds from a charmingly sharp beat towards the pinnacle of underground modern. As fresh melodies are slowly introduced to compliment the original root we are transported along a deep tunnel that ultimately culminates in a chamber of euphoric melancholia. The wide yet clear soundscapes of Purple build a cocoon of ethereal resonance that when combined with the song s resounding bass line and driving percussive elements will carry any unwary listener off into the dark night sky. Moving away from the expanses of the EP other songs Thorny Heart constructs an edifice of deep sounds with subtley playful melodies that together with violently harmonic techno elements build towards a classically singular climax of electronic ecstasy. The familiar pulses of acid techno are the core of Transacid Eisenbahn but it is those 303 lines combined with clear pads and stabbing synths.
