2011 is set to be a big year for Cari Lekebusch"s H Productions label.
The imprint is redefining itself with a tight roster of some of techno"s classic names, producing forward thinking music and collaborating together to achieve their aims. The roll call for this new era includes The Advent, Alexi Delano, Cari Lekebusch, Jesper Dahlback, Joel Mull and the awesome Tony Rohr who appears here with his long awaited second album.
Brooklyn based Rohr has been a solid fixture on the international electronic music scene since the nineties, recording for labels such
as Drumcode, Plus 8 and of course H Productions. His music style has been described in the past as Voodoo Techno, though in reality his musical output has varied from tough tech house to rolling underground techno, always with an eye on quality.
For "Oddlantik Avenue" Rohr distils his years of experience as a DJ and producer to create a superb soundscape of percussive techno and machine music spread over ten tracks. From the opening robotic intro cut of "I Come in Piece(s)" through the glitchy trippiness of "Meta Tripping" and on to the rough old school stylings of "Mechazilla vs Mr Oddmatik" there is quality and depth here at every turn. Eerie cuts like "Dark Passenger" sit up against twisted techno killers such as "Eden Acid" and the off the wall "RZ-Fun" to provide a rounded insight into the sound of Tony Rohr in 2011.
This is an out and out techno album with no concession to anything that may dilute its electronic pedigree, however it displays a diversity within its own sonic walls that makes clear Tony Rohr is a producer with much to offer.
