I used to buy plenty of mix albums but often they just weren't the sum of their parts being either badly curated or simply boring. I stopped buying them but once in a while I still dabble and having liked Objekt's own productions I committed myself to go in to Kern.
Before playing this I read the inlay card to discover Objekt had given some serious thought to this compilation, he writes of the cd it was “planned, recorded, embellished, reworked, tweaked and chiseled away at over a period of 6 months,” what a luxury!
Fusing traditional DJ techniques with studio trickery the 36 featured tracks run the gamut of electronic music from the armchair to the dancefloor and to the asylum, it's also brilliantly paced. The first few cuts aren't really mixed but it really begins to flow before long. The last quarter drops away to become quite abstract but the pulse of techno is still present just in a crazy way.
