Gatto Nero the black cat promises no bad luck but rather crowded dance floors: The man who is otherwise known as Ah CamaSotz debuts with ten tracks of fierce inyourface techno. Indeed ADrum is so essentially and unpretentiously fourtothefloor that it will bring out the youthful spirit in anyone who has ever been able to relate to the genre. Charming and clever produced with all the expertise you might expect from a veteran of electronic music who is well known for his mastery of analogue synths this album is thoroughly rhythmic and while it stays well clear of industrial sounds it isnt friendly either for sure. Addictive ear candy for compulsive dancers! Those who have followed Herman Klapholz work since the 1990s know of course that he has had his forays into the techno genre before with his main outlet Ah CamaSotz as well as with sideprojects such as and Powder Pussy and just as well we know of his infatuation with cats (and bats) so know these passions come together with this project which is bound to grab your attention from the start: Manoeuvring through a number of formative elements this will never fail its physical impact. Sturdy minimalism (Away) maddening drops (ADrum) tribal beats (Dead End Core) fierce bass lines (Woofer) earworm electro riffs (24 Hours) and a general sense of euphoria drive the album home well before you thought. All that carries a comfortable warmth reminiscent of early techno productions the analogue trademark sound that will have subwoofers work out seriously. While the concert stage and the club seem the natural habitats of this album it will also thrive on home listening. ADrum is a sure shot for technophiles as well as a mustexplore facet of Ah CamaSotz for the devotees.
