Various Traum 100
Riley Reinhold (Triple R) and Jacqueline Klein celebrate their label’s 100th vinyl release with a superb compilation of new and exclusive tracks. Traum is the current rendezvous point for the most seductive elements of Detroit techno, classic trance, ambient, and whatever their artists fancy. Equally interested in developing new sounds as banking on established talent (Dominik Eulberg, Fairmont), that diversity shows in 100. Minilogue and Thomas Brinkmann contribute a pair of dancefloor igniters against which newcomers Super Flu and Bukkador & Fishbeck more than hold their own. Broker/Dealer’s stunning new “Midnight” buries tribal drums deep inside bachelor-pad minimal, and Jesse Somfay offers up the best cello part this side of Apparat. Dreamy.
