Micha Klang - Mother Mother

A three-track affair from Klang, a man whose roots are in punk rock and who was converted to the dance music cause by the techno of Sven Vath… but who here has produced an EP that will suit househeads to the proverbial T.

The title cut bravely uses a heavily-treated but instantly recognisable vocal sample over a crisp, driving backing that should DJs of many house and techno persuasions, such is its general electronic zeitgeist-iness. Its appeal to those of a house bent is enhanced by the inclusion of some organ stabs, which are brought to the fore in the more overtly house Arnaud Le Texier Remix. The EP's then brought to a close by Catch My Beat, a not-dissimilar chugger featuring a VERY familiar old school stab as its key point of interest.

All told, it's solid rather than exceptional, I'd say, but it's worth investigating for sure.

Out: This week

About: This is on Room 9, a label I'm not sure I've come across before, and who are so new they don't appear to have a website, a MySpace, a Discogs entry or anything! So what can I tell you? Erm, well… Micha Klang is from Nuremberg… Arnaud Le Texier is from Paris, runs Safari Electronique but according to his MySpace will NOT be listening to your demo, thank you… and the vocal sample is of course from What's Goin' On by Marvin Gaye, who according to Wikipedia added an 'e' to his real name only because Sam Cook(e) had. So there you go.
