Peter Grummich Switch Off the Soap Opera

Technoheads have long revered Peter Grummich for delivering (under infinite pseudonyms) what seems to come naturally from his home turf of Berlin: 20 years of DJing and producing, with little deviation from the kind of lean, minimalist lines that make techno purists weep for joy. Predictably, Switch . . . offers Grummich‘s signature blend of hypnotic melody and deep, dubby basslines, which has made him a natural fit for labels like Kompakt, Ghostly and Shitkatapult; expect mostly loop-friendly tracks better suited for mixing than listening, though. And too bad the grainy cover art looks like everybody forgot about it until the last minute.
