"A Canadian guy named Tomas Jirku released his first EP on Klang like Farben or Betrieb. 'Micro-House' sound is what it has lately been called in famous British Wire magazine. A sound which they believe has mainly been created and influenced by German producers. Well, even though Tomas Jirku proves that it has already become a global phenomenon and the he really goes deep, carefully using the sweet elements of dub on his journey."



Oh. Jirku ist Canadier? Nun gut. Wir glauben das gern. Nach seiner brillianten LP auf Force Inc kommen hier endlich vier neue Tracks, die
etwas von der runden Reduktion rausnehmen, und dafür den Floor und die Basslines stärker in den Vordergrund schichten. Stärker heißt allerdings nicht unbedingt viel, und so sind die Stücke vor allem deshalb so gut, weil man den einzelnen Sounds und ihrem Herumflattern im Gerüst der Beats immer noch so lange nachsehen kann, dass sehr sehr viel Tiefe entsteht. Musik, die den Minimalismus von Clicks auf die Spitze treiben kann, und dabei dennoch einen Hauch von Chicagominimalfunk aufrecht erhält, der im rechten Moment überrascht strukturell kicken kann.

...and thanks (or no thanks) to Google translate for the interpretation:

Oh. Jirku is Canadian ? Well. We believe the like . After his brilliant record on Force Inc come here finally four new tracks take out some of the round reduction, and for more layers to the floor and the basslines to the fore. However, stronger does not necessarily mean a lot, and so the pieces are especially so well because you can see the individual sounds and their fluttering in the framework of the beats still so long that very much depth arises. Music that can drive the minimalism of a click on the top, while still a touch of Chicago Minimal Funk maintains that can surprise kick structurally at the right moment.
