/ +++ ... This EP is about to clarify two things. First: &ME is still backing his obscure fondness forsyntax, funny additional characters and acronyms. So, the A-side is called “F.I.R.” (andnobody knows, what it stands for. If you just read it as a word, it makes a cool sound, though.Just as if you would get a ruler to vibrate and pull it over the desk), while the flip is entitled“+++”.Second: it clarifies something about its creator. &ME is non of those bouncing show-offs thatwould forget to play the next record in a club, just because he is so busy with pointing bothforefingers at himself all the time. &ME is the type of guy that would coproduce stuff forHell, Lotterboys/-girls or Terranova without really taking so much credit for it. We say: cut it!Days of modesty are over.“F.I.R.” is the essence of everything &ME stands for, a true and flawless peaktime-beauty. Itjoins his intuition for stringency in structure, his sensibility for a sophisticated and safe walkover the shaky bridge from House to Pop, the precision of laying out a track to beunmistakably danceable, but not intrusive and last not least his ability to pitch a female vocal-sample to let it sound like a Rick Astley-outtake. Safe to say, that this might be his sweetestwork so far.“+++” on the other hand appears to be some tricky chicanery. It starts like a lot of B-sidesstart, as a reduced space for little reflexive experiments, or however it is whitewashed when atrack just isn’t that spectacular. But then, there is a kickdrum-monster arising out of this housyself reflection, a monster, that grabs some percussions and vocalsamples as companions andculminates into a massive break, thfor sure no pending questions.
