D. Diggler Sounds Fiction
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Raummusik
In the poorly translated press release for Andreas Mügge's third D.Diggler album, the claim is made that "D.Diggler is redefining the rather too often heard terms 'minimal dub techhouse'-and gives it a new meaning." Whatever. The back of the jewel case notes Mügge is now booked through Sven Vath's Cocoon empire, so it's more plausible that the reason behind Sounds Fiction's überclub tranceyness is that the once-lone-man-with-a-clue in the German tech house scene has gone corporate. Mügge can still knock the floor-bangers out (c.f. "Acid Blain" and "The Radiator" for exceptional punishment), but it ain't the dense software sound that made D.Diggler so important (sigh).
