His prolific output has seen Lekebusch release a string of albums and mix compilations over the years, receiving critical acclaim for his work to date. His latest foray into the world of the long player sees this experienced artist pull out all the stops and deliver a stunning body of work that makes up "State of the Art". From the atmospherics of the opening title track its clear that this album is here to grab your attention. There is a depth of character in these recordings thats cemented by Lekebuschs flawless production skills, be it the stripped minimalism of "Abomination", the bass and synth driven intensity of "Saw Tooth" or the ethereal vocal led "Rising Star", they all deliver perfectly, providing snapshots into the sonic sound of this supreme producer.
Highlights are hard to pick on such a consistently good album, but the rolling old school techno of "Simplicity" is certainly worth noting for his heads down hypnotic quality that has one instantly hooked. Likewise the closing cut "Art of Technology" is worth a mention for its dark and spacious sound driven out of a marriage of sci-fi ambience and electro tinged percussive elements. However there really is not a bad track here, with each piece bring new elements to the fore and further displaying Lekebuschs studio mastery.
