Snork #81 Roland M.Dill Wishful ThinkingWishful ThinkingHow do you know you are not a zombie? Once you pose the question, there's no coming back. Once you listen, there's no return either. The question will remain in your head and the music will control your body. So do you dare? Do it, and this new Snork release by Roland M. Dill will suck you into a compelling kaleidoscope of intoxicating rhythm and sound.It's gloomy but exciting. First and foremost you feel the beat. It's a steady and strong groove. But then, you start hearing all the bits and pieces surrounding it. Echoing sounds are reminding of a sub marine deep down. Subliminal bass lines make you wonder what's underneath, and whirring noises unconsciously are building up a captivating tension. Is it the buzz of a swarm of bees? Sometimes you may think you can hear a wildlife atmosphere. Whatever it is. One thing is for sure: It's a creepingly fantastic story that makes you melt into it while your body keeps on grooving.Roland M. DillAs a young child, for Roland M. Dill, it was all about classical music education. He played the piano, the trumpet, the trombone, the alphorn, and the organ. During his youth, he won several prizes and operated as a choirmaster. So, his ears have been schooled pretty well ever since for classical music, jazz, and subsequently also for techno. His first glance towards electronic music was Detroit. He admired artists such as Charles Siegling, Jeff Mills, Petar Dundov, and finally became a producer himself. Since his first release in February 2008 on Trapez ltd., Roland M. Dill has proven himself as a remarkable techno producer with a distinct sense for rhythm and who soon became well-known within the scene - at the latest with his big success of the remixes from Minilogue's "Space", Lucio Aquilina's "Disco Bus", or Extrawelt's "Im Garten von Eben". Also, his three different remix versions of I Want it All for the Depeche Mode album "Remixes 2: 8111" on (Mute Records) spread the word about Roland M. Dill. Considering his musical background, it is almost self-evident that all of his productions include a lot of analog instruments. He rarely uses music programs. And, he pursues musical freedom. No message, function, or advocacy is included in his art. It's just the music itself, and its sole function is techno.
