To explain who Thomas Fehlmann is and what his contributions to modern music are would take some time. A few catchwords should be enough: Ex-member of German post-Dada band Palais Schaumburg, worked together with The Orb, Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes, Blake Baxter, Moritz Von Oswald (Rhythm & Sound) and numerous others. This man obviously knows some things about good music and other people know that he knows. There are not many musicians out there who still have an impact on the current club scene after so many years in the business. Thomas Fehlmann has, as his new album Visions Of Blah impressively proves. After several succesful and highly acclaimed 12'es and compilation contributions (not only on Kompakt), Thomas Fehlman explores the possibilities of the minimalistic yet pop-fueled Cologne Techno/House sound at full length. The styles on Visions Of Blah range from groovy Ambient tracks to clubby Techno smashers, all spreading soul and a deepness that many club records just don't have. To put it simply and short: Visions Of Blah is a fantastic dance album you should't miss, your life would be poorer without it.
