A single sheet of paper would hardly be enough to describe who is this Thomas Fehlmann and how wonderful his new record. Though you could also expect that everyone knows that this guy from Switzerland is one of the most dazzling figures in German pop culture and Pioneer electronic pop music. As a member of Palais Schaumburg, he side-parted punk and catapulted German pop music out of its impossibility. At times when the toilets at Tresor were new, Thomas Fehlmann and Moritz von Oswald, both used to shake hands with Detroit Techno. He was co-producer of outstanding albums e.g. by Blake Baxter and Eddie Flashin Folwkes, and later, with the Orb, he became chill-out-history. To cut a long story short, in the last two and a half decades Thomas Fehlmann has taken part in the decisive revolutions of music and sound and now, with 'Whistle', he comes back and on to the dance-floor in a most impressive way. Fehlmann 2002 breathes in the hippest sounds of the jetzt-zeit and breathes out a perfect EP which proves that he is still In touch with today's club culture. The A-side 'Making It Whistle' combines textures of clicks and cuts with pressure and soulful techhouse. 'Gratis' takes up the shuffle fever theme and flirts with happy ska tendencies and 'Luftikuss' forms the glamorous ambient end.
