new release by Omsk Information and Dr. Walker
'Café Keese' is out since February 12th on Lucidflow!
Credentials don’t come more comprehensive than the pairing of Omsk Information and Dr. Walker, the pair behind release #149 for Lucidflow. The former has been a product developer for M-Audio and Native Instruments, contributing to the glittering constellation of products such as Traktor and Maschine. The latter is Ingmar Koch, co-founder of Kompakt records, who boasts a history sharing the Harvest Records label with Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and Can, amassing an astonishing 800 strong catalogue of vinyl, CD and remix releases.
Unsurprisingly the 'Café Keese' release - named after a café in Berlin - is fully flavoured, laden with the experience on show. It leads the way with the Ball Paradox version of the title track, stepping out on finest form. It is swinging, melodic and intoxicating in the manner with which it swirls around your head. It’s the Lucidflow manifesto given a wry spin, with dub stabs coming from pizzicato strings and a twinkle in the eye of the melodies on show.
