"There was once a pop music genre that was not actually a genre. It emerged in the late nineties and early 2000s. It was called 'electronica'. This genre was no more a genre than 'indie' or even 'pop'. Electronica was a term simply used to define club music, ambient or noise. It referred to a compartmentalized and, for the most part, friendly listening music that was not good to dance to. As a result, a wide range of musical styles came to be classified under this non-genre just because there was no other suitable classification at the time. And now Oliver Doerell is putting out an album that sounds like a late electronica manifesto. On Z, Doerell pulls out all the stops in terms of every possible and impossible sound: from field recordings of all kinds, including children's voices and street sounds, to kalimba patterns and elusive fragments of melodies. All of these eccentric sounds, in all their waywardness, add up to something resembling songs. Sometimes dreamy and faded, at other times concrete and driving, giving rise to a very special kind of loop-based music - intimate, meditative and timeless. Originally from Brussels, Doerell is a multi-instrumentalist and has been living in Berlin since 1990. He is a member of the bands Dictaphone, SWOD and Raz Ohara & The Odd Orchestra, with which he has released a total of eight albums to date. additional vocals: Lady Ived, mastering: Nils Frahm, cover art: Fehmi Baumbach."
