First full album in a whole eight years from the highly regarded Pole. Wald is a very strong way to return, a tight electronic meditation on the forest. Slightly dubbed rhythms are accompanied by nicely textured synth lines for a record perfect for home listening or esoteric dancefloors. 3 sides of music, with the side D taken up by an etching.
Conrad Schnitzler / Pole
German electronic legend (and member of both Tangerine Dream and Kluster) Conrad Schnitzler died a few years ago, but his voluminous synth archives are still being mined by a series of invited artists. On this Con-struct release, club music engineer Pole duets with Schnitzler’s sounds, making brand new compositions. Out on Bureau B.
Pole follows up his recent Wald album with a track you might have missed: Lurch was originally available only as a bonus track in Japan. It appears here in adjusted single form, with strong backing from Peder Mannerfelt (of Roll The Dice and The Subliminal Kid), who remixes the tune. 300 7” copies only.
