1 - DORAU, ANDREAS
- DAS WESENTLICHE - (LP)
If music were a sandwich, Dorau would toss the bread and just eat the filling. Who needs verses, anyway? To the detriment of the fragile vinyls, not to mention the displeasure of his sister (they were her records, after all), he would lift the needle and drop it onto his favoured grooves (the chorus). To this day, Andreas Doraus aversion to verses is as strong as ever. Should one point out to him that his own albums actually contain more than a few verses, the artist is wont to reply: "The record company made me!" The sheer nerve of it!Fortunately, he has now arrived at Tapete Records, a label renowned for giving free rein to libertine spirits. The songs on Das Wesentliche feel all the more opulent for having left so much out. And they are wonderfully brief - a brilliant move in this internet age of shrinking attention spans. It is a stroke of genius to remove anything and everything which may run the risk of being boring or annoying. Not so easily done in real life, but anything goes in art, as proven by this albums impressive results.Andreas Dorau produced Das Wesentliche together with top producer Zwanie Jonson. When Jonson enthusiastically hits the record button, hes liable to cry "Off we go on another wild ride" and "Das Wesentliche" is as wild as they come. Bubblegum, dance, HI-NRG, leftfield electronica, junk shop glam and yacht rock are all signposted along the way. Dorau is supported by friends like the Marinas, Carsten Erobique Meyer and Gunther Buskies in his daring endeavours to strip away unnecessary ballast from the music. May his confrères follow his visionary example in the future!
