Falko Brocksieper takes his idiosyncratic, analog-driven aesthetic into the shadowy depths of the Contexterrior universe! Aside from releasing tracks on Sub Static, which he ran with MIA for nearly ten years, Falko has also popped up on several other labels like Cereal/Killers, Treibstoff and most recently Leena. Now Falko brings his rich sound to Contexterrior for the Adobe EP.
From the first second of the title track, your ears will perk up, an eerie whistle alerting you that something is afoul. The stomping beat barges into the room and the stacked chords introduce a sense of mystery. Detective Brocksieper is on the prowl! And like any good Krimi, “Adobe” has an impeccable sense of buildup and resolution.
On the flipside, “South East” follows a Detroitisch melodic motif as a pan flute pangs the open air, keeping the high ends occupied as the low ends roll along into the deep wilderness. The Adobe EP is yet another example showing Falko Brocksieper’s ability to balance an informed musical background with a true sense of what keeps the crowd lost in the groove.
