"It's no secret that Kompakt pioneers Wolfgang Voigt and Jörg Burger have maintained a long and steady friendship outside the studio. It's even detectable if you give a critical listen to their collaborative sound, where almost like magic, the distinct musical swagger of each artist synchronises completely with the other. There's Wolfgang Voigt, a confirmed radical, a stalwart, analytical, mindbombing sensualist who famously transformed Techno into a state of matter and lifted the Art Brut club canvas. His material spans from Mike Ink and Gas to Protest or Kafkatrax, and within this contrast-rich portfolio, each new oeuvre transports the serial anarchy which is the artist's trademark. And then there's Jörg Burger, aka The Modernist, a highly focussed musicsmith, galvanizing each bassline to a regal shine and buttoning-up dancefloors with his maximally minimalistic precision funk. "Mohn" is a new trip through the Burger/Voigt multiverse: pendulating between analog mysticism and digital hieroglyphics, Mohn makes a compostition of the continental drift, creating an electrically charged atmosphere of tension and posthuman textures staged as roadkill on the information highway, never forgetting the need for harmony in the chaos of the unheard."
