Modeselektion Vol. 02, Guy Gerber, Fennesz, Digitalism
Here comes our June recap - its for all of you who might have missed some of the month's music over watching football or enjoying the perfect weather that surely must have existed someplace. Outstanding albums have come from Jamie Jones, Guy Gerber, more...
At long last, Cristian Vogel returns to the context of club music with a new album, and this time this context is dubstep rather than funky Brighton techno. Fans needn't worry though, as Vogel's brilliance in sound design and arrangement makes 'The Inertials' as much a classic Vogel album as it is mind-blowingly futuristic. Essential!
Second album for Cristian Vogel on Tresor with eight more tracks proving his dancefloor mastery. Quite typical for the time the tracks are paced around 140 - 150 bpm, combining contagious rhythms, funked-up, bleepy synths, and the most subtle of breakdowns.
Cristian Vogel's debut album from 1994 firmly established him as one of the hottest producers of the time. Pure bleepy machine funk across its eight tracks, paving the way for his subsequent success with Super Collider. Classic.
Yet another classic album from Cristian Vogel which impressively showcases his diversity as a producer. 'Dungeon Master' combines Vogel's passion for experimental sound design with unique funk shuffles and hyperactive edits. A full one-hour live set comes included as a bonus.
Strongly positioned as advanced, highly-technological music, as intensely detailed by Cristian Vogel himself in the 2007 press release for 'The Never Engine', his first album since 2003's 'Dungeon Master' surely delivers on these statements with its meticulous arrangements and advanced sound design.
XPUTE theWoopWoop (Track 02 on this Album) was reviewed:Elektro Guzzi: "We listened a lot to this track and the whole 'Never Engine' record while rehearsing for the recording of our album. Cristian Vogel's sound aesthetic has influenced us since the beginning of the band."

While Berlin's legendary techno bunker Tresor has recently expanded to China by opening a venue in Beijing, it has been a bit quiet around the club's seminal label in recent years. For well over a decade however the Tresor imprint has been one of the most more...
This is one of the earlier get-togethers of Cristian Vogel and Jamie Lidell. Placing his hands on Vogel‘s '(Don't ) Take More', Lidell changed Vogel's more laid back vocal sample version into an unforgettable dancefloor smasher, somewhere between genius and madness. Still burning hot!
A release of this artist is recommended by De:Bug:
Germany's inimitable magazine for music, media, culture and self discipline, De:Bug, presents one selected album for a special price each month. Cristian Vogel likes it up close when it comes to his fan base. It might not be the largest under the rave-sun, but what it lacks in size it makes more...
