Przegląd przez nagrania Matthiasa Schaffhäusera, jednego z najważniejszych twórców tanecznej elektroniki w Niemczech dla berlińskiej wytwórni Blaou.
This mixed compilation album for Blaou tells the story musical wise. It is titled „From 4 to 6 a.m.” and presents the complete 'Blaou Years', the works for Blaou until now, including 10 tracks that appear to be a versatile and highly inspired string of sounds that work like a concept album soundtrack for modernist urban electronica. A striking example how fresh and inspiring this musical genre can still be when it is composed in Cologne-Germany (see also Mouse On Mars). And 'Composition' is the word for this album, one hour of crystal clear raunchy energetic excitement from the humble foreplay installment '4 Uhr morgens' towards the amorph bass flow when 'Smith and Wesson' appear on the scene up to the dramatic guitar crescendo of '6 uhr morgens', you can feel the rhythms build and tension grow with each round this CD spins. Due to the long time span of the single productions incorporated on the album the final edited version feels like a journey in time, going back to the future in the best meaning of the expression. You may know Mathias Schaffhäuser for his recent success on Lido Hotel on his own Ware label but you have never heard him sounding so special and intense as From 4 to 6 a.m.. So, electronic movers and future music pelvis shakers, if you didn´t know it before : the new year has no rhythm and no rhyme and no right time if it doesn't last 'from 4 to 6 a.m.'.
