The Whole Traffic
(LP Fax+49-69/450464 )
Dr.Atmo, Pino & Wildjamin
Starts out with some Persian poem,
and occasional sort-of middle eastern percussion winds around a stomping
4/4 beat with a bassline that is taken over by various interesting melodies.
138 KMH is (surprise) at 138 bpm and so on. 138 KMH is excellent, with
a little tinny break speeds by, simulating the cruising speed of the journey.
110 KMH is a little slower but not as interesting as the first, making
it *way* too long. As things slow down it gets more interesting, as the
pounding beat gives way to slower middle eastern percussion and some beautiful
melodies. All in all, this is kind of strange, but a different sound and
very interesting. Hard to classify.
