Album Review

Although his name will be forever tied to the non-prolific yet incredibly well-known duo Kruder & Dorfmeister, Richard Dorfmeister has spent most of his musical life teamed with schoolmate Rupert Huber. The pair have released four albums and as many full-length remix projects (as Tosca) in the same time K&D has yet to put out one album. And that is still not considering the time Dorfmeister and Huber spent playing together in Dehli 9, the high-school group from which this album takes its name.

Those who know only of Dorfmeister's more popular unit will be far from shocked upon hearing this release. No matter who Dorfmeister works with, the same lithe and soothing soundscapes come through in the finished product. Yet Dehli9 does stand out from previous efforts by programming more upbeat jazzy licks before running them through the familiar dub echo chamber. This slight increase in energy makes Dehli9 less a record for blunted evenings and more of a calming and focused companion perfect for getting through a day's stress.

Far more druggy is the bonus second disc, which consists of solo piano compositions played by Huber, and subtly rearranged by Dorfmeister in the studio. What could have been dull, avant-garde piano movements come alive in the space between the minimal notes where Dorfmeister works his magic beneath the note's resonance. Listeners will surely spend most of their time with disc one, but disc two is well worth at least one somber evening's listen.

disc 2 -- swallowing a slllooooww pill

One must be in a very particular mood to be able to swallow this set of work by Tosca. I found myself quasi-depressed on a number of levels after only a bit of taking in each song. This type of sound, however, may be productive for the drugged out, hung-over, near-sleep, or grieving set. Fortunately though, Tosca is an extremely versatile group and able to pull off a variety of electronica-driven ambiances. If this one doesn't suit you, just check out another of their albums.

Ride the breeze

One of my all time albums. This album is pure chill and will make you wanna relax and get kinda close to someone. Gotta say my best track is Gute Laune followed by Wonderful. Love the Tosca

K&D dunk another basket

Dehli9 is a great album, though different from their past stuff. Good to see they are still up to their old inventive downtemp and worldly dubby selves! Worth the purchase price. The second part of the album is mellow sunday morning music.
