NOW PLAYING: Conrad Schnitzler, ‘Ballet Statique’ (Reissue)

The Artist/Album: Conrad Schnitzler, Ballet Statique (M=Minimal, 2011)

A Short Review: Germany’s fairly new M=Minimal imprint continues to mine only the finest material from Conrad Schnitzler’s sprawling back catalog. This particular LP is more than three decades old, yet it still hints at everything from the break-driven head rush of drum ‘n’ bass (“Zug”) to the more experimental side of new-school acts like Emeralds and Oneohtrix Point Never (“Electric Garden” sounds like the progressively insane ramblings of a Kraut-rock keyboardist).
