PROFESSOR KAZKAZ _ Algorhythms _ MKX17CD
panic - this is not the relase of a confused professor who has just
discovered electronic music. The CD also has nothing to do with the
"Kazkaz the unholy" level of the online fantasy concept "Temple
of Atal´Hakkar". Professor Kazkaz rather is the working title
of the co-operation of two well-known members of the Elektrolux label
family: Marcus Schmahl aka Guardner
and part of the Rauschfaktor project and Gregor Tresher
alias Sniper Mode, who, not least due to his releases
on Datapunk and Great Stuff Recordings, has been elected "Producer
of the year 2006" by the readers of the Raveline magazine. "Algorhythms"
is a paradigm of the collabration of two autarkic artists bringing about
something to be logically derived from the respective musical pool and,
at the same time, going much further beyond. "Marcus and me have
known and appreciated each others work for a long time. As Marcus´
projects are infuenced by his lounge and HipHop background while I am
much closer to Elektro, we were convinced that a collaboration would
bring about some interestesting music." (Gregor Tresher) "Finally,
we both love electronic music, are genuine hard- and software junkies
and get along very well with each other. Hence, it is not too absurd
to get together and try out some new sounds. Last but not least, Professor
Kazkaz has been a welcome variation in sound compared with our very
own productions." (Marcus Schmahl) This way, tracks like "Serapatrix",
"Europium", "Vacuum Science" or "Ellipsometry"
live on a wishful, fragile and highly melodic form of romanticism entering
into an alliance never heard before with smooth Elektro HipHop beats.
