Review: Marcel Fengler – Twisted Bleach

Label: Ostgut Tonträger
Catalog#: o-ton27


A1: Twisted Bleach

A2: Gridlock

B: Chi Twine


“Little Marcel” delivers once again something fresh and unique sounding. The previous work had a very direct influence of the resident club as well as Dettmann and their friends, which Fengler took in and made into something of his own.

Replacing his previous pattern, he manages to fuse oldschool house and Berghain-ish no-high-frequency kicks together with raw and pumping percussion and drums. On ‘Twisted Bleach’, this new style from Fengler is showcased in the most direct manner, which then settles down a bit into the old style with ‘Gridlock’. Apart from these, a limp groove that leans towards dubstep is introduced with ‘Chi Twine’, a apocalyptic track that is one of the best this year.

A sense of timelessness surrounds this 12″, especially with the big spectrum of influences and sounds that in some mysterious way feels closer to each other than other tracks that moves in the same area.

‘Twisted Bleach’ is due in late August.
