Blumentopf - Eins a (2001) Retail CD
Foreign Language Rap
A combination label sampler and mix disc, Eins A finds Chris Tietjen drawing liberally from the Cocoon roster to create an enjoyable 11-track overview of some highlights from the label's five year history. Starting with the ten-minute plus soothing raindrop sparkle/aggro pulse slam of J. Sienkiewicz's "Dream Machine," providing a suitably slow-rise beginning to the overall experience, Tietjen keep things moving well, not a jaw-dropping set but definitely one with skill that finds the variety in the intentionally stripped-down template. Cocoon's house style, for lack of a better word, finds a balancemore… between more minimal experimenters and glorious, upfront pop hooks that's appealing on an immediate, near physical level — something like Glove's "Drogenkontrolle" is hardly DJ Scooter but the core bassline and the crowd/MC samples are pure exaltation, while Pig and Dan's retooling of Yello's classic "Oh Yeah" is a total treat. (It certainly doesn't hurt either that they're riding a huge DEPECHE|MODE-INTO-EBMDepeche Mode-into-EBM fetish at many points — 'S|APPEARLegowelt's appearance near the end of the disc with "Disco Rout" is almost required, though TIETJEN'S|MIXING|INTOTietjen's mixing into it is easily the most abrupt and stiff on the disc.) If little on |OUTRIGHT|SUREins outright surprises (admittedly unsurprising given that it's retrospective by default), hearing how classic approaches can be beautifully retooled into a new setting by many different acts is a thrill in and of itself — the vacuum-cleaner bass swarm on 'S|REMIX|ODavid K's remix of 'SOliver Koletzki's "Der Muckenschwarm," especially when it cuts in right before the beats, is pure magic. The disc concludes where the label started with Frank Lorber's &"Electric Sparkle," making for an energetic but lower key ending that's just right.
