*Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* CLR presents Monoloc's debut album Drift. Born and raised in the heart of the blooming techno metropolis Frankfurt am Main, Monoloc is not an unknown face in the international electronic music scene anymore. Numerous releases on respected labels as well as countless of his characteristic DJ sets have gained the artist many faithful friends. His multilayered productions, which have been continuously evolving and opening up to new influences, never fail to stay true to his strong techno roots. Regarding the overall sound, Monoloc moves skillfully through sonic environments consisting of deep bass, noise, dark beats and quotes from all kinds of musical genres. Label-head Chris Liebing took an active part in the mix-down of the album, so that the tracks also had to pass the test of his critical ears. Just as usual, Brian Sanhaji, another studio neighbor and long-term CLR artist took care of the mastering of the tracks and polished them to their full splendor. The result can be enjoyed as much in the club as at home. Drift is a musically sophisticated, slow, and in spite of all the love for details, pleasantly dirty techno album. The occasional vocal tracks grant this album an atmospherically rich and diversified flow. Together with singer/songwriter Daniel Wild, three songs have been crafted for this purpose, adding a deep and soulful dimension. Each one of the tracks works independently on its own, but it is the thoughtful combination that makes this album appear as more than merely the sum of its individual parts.
