With the release of "American Ruhr" it can be stated without the earlier necessities of caution, that the Homewreckers are the most important new deep electronic producers to have come along since so many years. The word "important", however, is, finally, an historian's word and probably the Homewreckers are not very much concerned with it. They are too busy making music...The harmonic and rhythmic advances together with Kemo's great lyrics make the rework of "American Ruhr" as emotionally contemporary as the latest world crisis. It comes with startingly deep and effective, but subtly structured, shifting rhythms and meters, with great energy, movement and grace. And, most important, with a bassline that will last FOREVER!The Original Version shows best how the Homewreckers work - soulful, clear, intrinsically homegrown and utterly honest.The remix works from Mark Flash and Bileebob, both DJs and producers from Detroit's 'Underground Resistance' camp, are techno / house swingers in the old fashioned sense, but it is also more than that, because they add to their interpretation modern equipment and a wink in the eye.The artwork is by Cory Arcangel. Cory is a Digital Artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. His work was featured in the 2004 Whitney Museum, and has also been exhibited in the Guggenheim Museum and 'MoMA'. The artwork was designed on Lighning Paint, a clone of the 1984 paint application 'mac paint' and the font is from the APPLE II GS.This is the 3rd record representing the vinyl collectors edition of the forthcoming album "American Ruhr".
