7/10 Ant Staff review, 13 March 2015

Following the laidback crystalline ambient computer music of The Automatics Group, The Death of Rave shift towards the Dancefloor with the ‘Tropicalyptic Excursions’ 12” from Naturkunde Mesuem Ostkreuz. Kicking of with the stomping title track with marching snares, mucky bassline and bubbling electronics. The hypnotic repetition broken by a midway breakdown, re-emerging with that squelchy bass that recalls late 90’s Neil Landstrumm and a funky groove that recalls ESG.

‘Talkingabouttalking’ has jerky, off-kilter, kinda jackin’ rhythms that recall Chicago’s DJ Rush, Augmented by weird gurgling electronics. Meanwhile ‘Zaragoza Variations’ is built of rolling snares, tumbling kicks, metallic clattering and robotic bleeps building into a big buzzing rave climax. All decent fun on blue wax.
