Roland Faber - Gegen Den Strom

Aube Records

Roland Faber dumped his successful drum ‘n’ bass/garage career and went back to making the music that first influenced him - namely rich, analogue synthesizer material in the vein of Tangerine Dream. This new release for the wonderful Dusseldorf label Aube continues the tradition set by “Molecule” and “Gropiusstadt”, employing hulking analogue beasts to conjure up downtempo interstellar journeys in the manner of Herr Froese and co. It’s nothing new in terms of ambition, but with “Society”, Faber eschews cosmic trips for something much more dancefloor, bringing in some climactic melodies for maximum impact. The vinyl of this release is mastered to perfection as well - one to savour, especially as it has artwork by Emil Schult of Kraftwerk fame.
