During the production of the album Monoloc has been trying new ways, incorporating new styles, and sometimes just went with the flow without any plan or clearly defined goal. He so to speak drifted away a little bit from his usual work ethics, which resulted in a quite eclectic and highly entertaining album concept. Regarding the overall sound, Monoloc sticks to his origins and moves skillfully through sonic environments consisting of deep basses, noise, dark beats and quotes from all kinds of musical genres. Studio neighbor and label-head Chris Liebing took an active part in the mix-down of the album, so that the tracks also had to pass the test of his critical ears. Just as usual, Brian Sanhaji, another studio neighbor and long-term CLR artist took care of the mastering of the tracks and polished them to their full splendor. The result can be enjoyed as much in the club as at home.
Drift is a musically sophisticated, slow and in spite of all the love for details pleasantly dirty Techno album. The occasional vocal tracks grant this long-player an atmospherically rich and diversified flow. Together with singer / songwriter Daniel Wild, three songs have been crafted for this purpose, adding a deep and soulful dimension. Each one of the ten tracks works independently on its own, but it is the thoughtful combination that makes this album appear as more than merely the sum of its individual parts. Everybody at CLR is very happy about the outcome of this in-house production and we can only recommend you to pay attention to this great album.
