A1: Techno Life
B1: Can’t Stop Rocking
B2: Sorry You Had To Wait So Long
Johannes Kolter is Kolter, as well as being the artist formerly known as DJOKO, and here he follows up on his very recent Between Fragments album with a cheeky three tracker, once again for the Pilot label. This 12″ kicks off with ‘Techno Life’, which ironically is a breaks/electro hybrid affair with all the hallmarks you could ask for from vocoder vocals to electronic cowbells. ‘Can’t Stop Rocking’ borrows some serious chunks from a very famous electro record made by one of jazz music’s legends – that description must surely narrows it down – and adds some tempo and the occasional vocal hook. Then we see proceedings drawn to a close by ‘Sorry You Had To Wait So Long’, every bit as lively as the other two, spaciously produced and peppered with the subtlest of electro flourishes. All round good work, you have to agree.
