Dub Taylor (Alexander Krüger), also known as Tigerskin, The Magic Soul Orchestra and others, breaks a ten-year silence by joining Dirt Crew recordings with an album of versatile, atmospheric techno in Caves & Cages. There’s dreamy ambience, with indistinct, momentary glimpses of samples through the murk, all the way up to funky, deft and melancholy techno tunes. Very nice.
Staff note from Clinton:
Just going off a few soundclips here and this sounds to be the sort of lovely warm techno that is right up my street. Stretched out long form compositions with gentle beats and kick drums but fairly heavy on melody and use of analogue synths. Alexander Krüger is a bit of a master in this genre and tracks like Future History are total standout. He's unafraid to tinker with reggae/dub textures either but I prefer the sleek techno pieces.
