There are lots of producers out there who try really hard to do "something else". Then, there are these chosen few artists that effortlessly are "something else" in their own right. Durian Brothers and their magical array of modified turntables, sequencers and machines belong in this selected circle. So this mini album is a quite special and unconventional release, but that doesn't mean it's not dance music - quite the opposite! It just means it's perfect for Kontra-Musik. Labeled DAS MACHT MODERN, one would perhaps expect cold, intellectual sounds reminiscent of steel, glass and silicon, but on the contrary, the soundscape rather lends itself to feverish fantasies about the explorations of ancient cultures and malaria-stricken jungle expeditions. Listen to Oni Baba, for example: You can actually see the shadows from franticly dancing bodies flickering across the torch-lit walls of Angkor Wat. Or take the slow but decidedly sweaty Weggeputscht, in which you can clearly sense this pervading play between sounds and rhythms that stem from crumbling temples, huts and bonfires and the modern, yet analog sounds from altered machines. In fact, this mini album is so soaked in organic movement and compulsive rhythms that it should probably be tried out as a experimental treatment for coma patients. We dare you not to dance!
