Klaus Johann Grobe 'Du Bist So Symmetrisch' LP
Limited coloured vinyl.
Swiss group Klaus Johann Grobe have been at it since 2012, and they release their third album Du Bist so Symmetrisch (third on Trouble In Mind). The group continues to defy description and blur the lines between electronic pop, dance music, synthesis and kosmische. Du Bist So Symmetrisch follows the inevitable path laid out by their previous album (the Basel Prize-winning Spagat der Liebe), incorporating the slinky, jazz-fusion-laced grooves populating late night clubs and braiding them together with the band's own blend of mutant electro-funk. Driven by an organic, metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals, and a monstrous funky bass, the music aims towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked grooves the pair throw down. Du Bist... begins with the cascading arpeggio of a synth, edging into view, before lurching into the placid dancefloor groove of the first single Discogedanken. While the band invariably feels more at home in the club, Klaus Johann Grobe certainly aim towards the more dance-orientated arena of German music (see Der König or Von Gestern), aligning the metro pulse of Klaus Dinger and Kraftwerk's later techno work to more biological factors - like moss growing on the mainframe. For fans of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Air, Cavern of Anti-Matter, Neu!, Marcos Valle, Todd Terje, Klaus Dinger and Blank Realm.
