Totalstaat (in Dub)
Recorded within the last 3 years, these improv jams were never intended to be released as an album, but, as it often happens within improvisation, sometimes things just click.
While being locked away in a wooden hut in the middle of nowhere, northeast France, with nothing but rain pouring down outside, Franz Joseph, one half of DRNTTCKS, gave some old jams a deep re-listening while doing rough mixes of some more recent recordings, and suddenly, it all was there. Titles popping up, different recordings floating into one another, all held together by one sentence, truism, lie: „Es Ist Alles Schön“ – it is all so beautiful.
Here we have a culmination of live recordings with just two mics hanging around in the room, more carefully structured songs like „Totalstaat (In Dub)“, some short skits of noise, sitting right beneath the eruptive doom freakout of „Proteinkreuz“, or a more minimalistic, feedback-driven version of the DRNTTCKS sound spectrum like „Memoryschaum“.
See this one as a kind of mixtape. Or a document of life on earth, 2017, distilled through the machines of the Drone Attacks.
