Soylent Green La Forza del Destino

Soylent Green (a.k.a. Roman Flügel) sure loves his TB-303. Half of Alter Ego (responsible for the deservedly huge "Rocker" in 2004), Flügel works the hell out of the synthesizer on the acid-tinged minimal tracks here. But Flügel is best when he's more complex, as with the piano that makes "Camera Obscura" so much more interesting than the drab "Stay Stupid." However, he's best on tech-house where melodic layers warm his stripped-down beats, and on slowly unwound tracks like "Low Pt. 1." It‘s on the in-between stuff-not quite warm, not quite experimental-that he stumbles a bit.
