Ein Stueckchen Urstoff

Dominik Eulberg // Traum Schallplatten
Format // 12''
Its something you usually don't want to hear in a information sheet... that "this release is the best he has done so far", but

we are quite sure "Ein Stueckchen Urstoff" is a phenomenal

piece of techno and 100% unique! Defying genres such as

melodic techno, or manipulated music, glitch or whatever. "Ein Stueckchen Urstoff" reflects on Dominik Eulberg's sound design he developed for his "Diorama" album, fused with

much more hedonistic force, phantasy and tons of wit to go

with it.

The a-side "Offenbach" brings the "collective feel" in dance

music to a new level. Parts of the percussions in his track

are so slack they make you feel like being slapped in the

face with a wet towel whereas others are even melancholic

and some synth sounds are so euphoric and explosive you

get carried away big time. Dominik creates these strange and bizarre sounds and soundscapes that evoke that childlike sense of wonder you

feel when experiencing something for the first time. It is as if Dominik was inventing his own language speaking in an unpredictable tongue of spontaneity — but with all the

weirdness. What's really stunning is the fact that everyone

who has heard the track, seems to celebrate it relentlessly. "Offenbach" is an absolutely highlight and very DJ friendly

as well.

"Die Blaue Sekunde" is equally breathtaking and

groundbreaking! It's beats are made out of exploding

firecrackers and acoustic "rooms", they are huge and

spacious as anything. The melodies rotate with brutality and

hyper dynamics take place sucking in your energy like a

tornado. Switching from one extreme to the next one as if both were

brother and sisters, Dominik plunges into a pool of lush

sounds in the break… as if taking a bath in one of the Westerwaelder lakes Dominik lives close to. "Die Blaue

Sekunde" is an emotional roller coaster of the finest quality

you don't want to miss.

"Microorgasmen Im Morgentau" the b2 track on the vinyl is a cinematic soundtrack with a DJ twist… It's much more

intimate, personal and serious then the other two tracks. A

moody journey of a track without being deep house or

whatever is so fashionable these days. The track has a

rather medieval quality something which has been said

about Aphex Twin with his early " Coustic Window" tracks.

The bonus track which comes only with the digital version of

the release "Als Er Den Gleißenden Rand Seines Schattens

Sah" is a piano track Dominik recorded while it was storming

and rainy outside left alone with a candle, matches and twenty taxidermically prepared animals.
