With their second longplayer ?Meanderlust?, Randweg undertake a trip along melodic fields and rhythmic turns. The songs sound self-willed yet catchy: they are feel-good-music with an experimental core. With unusual instrumentation (clarinet, guitar, bass, cajon, computers) and unique style, Randweg treads a previously untrodden path: “A detailed one, sensitive, gentle and scratchy, one that you would like to go more often now.” (De: Bug). The duo breaks with any expectations one could have given the instruments collected here, and the clarinet playing “has nothing to do with the usual clichés one may associate with this in itself innocent and lovable instrument. On the contrary, it?s sounds remind us a lot more of our well-loved vintage analog synthesizers. “(Groove) Andreas Ernst plays the clarinet since he was 12 years old. The way he puts his instrument to use is exceptional: the clarinet serves more as a natural oscillator, whose vibrations are alienated with effects and transferred to a different world of sound. A woodwind instrument as a controller for soundtransducers, filters and delay. Andreas distinctive playing style can also be found in tracks by Ripperton, Ellen Allien and Der Dritte Raum. David Baurmann forms the musical counterpart on bass and guitar and enriches Randwegs electronic beats with cajon. Firmly anchored in Aachen's electronic music scene as a DJ, here he is a multi-instrumentalist, to whom the duo owes their peculiar band-like sound. It's a stroke of luck the two met 2007 in Berlin. Together they are Randweg.
