Send me your track


Wolfgang Voigt - Kafkatrax 2

The second in a series of compositions sourced entirely from a Franz Kafka audio book, this is another of Voigt’s amusing journeys beyond techno. One on the one hand it’s almost too bare, with just a beat and a looped series of samples, yet on the other it’s curiously addictive with a subtle shift in melody and the various clusters of voices providing a suitably sinister backdrop.  The second track is much more demonic, centred around a more sustained version of the original melody with the voices tempo increased in its intensity.
Frustratingly, I don’t really see or hear any particular reason for the voices chosen - given the power of the author’s own work, one might have heard some sort of connection. Yet this is techno - so perhaps asking of this was too much. The spirit of this endeavour is perhaps what is most important and Voigt, who for me alongside Uwe Schmidt is the most interesting of all producers in the genre, never fails to bring a smile to my face with whatever idea he comes up with next. More please.
