Where Uwe Schmidt is involved, you never quite known what you're going to get musically. Over the years, he's produced all sorts of weird and wonderful fare under a dizzying array of pseudonyms. Here he dons his Atom TM hat and joins forces with fellow German producer Tobias Freund, a man with a deep love of sound and a knack for creating distinctly atmospheric techno. So, you'd expect experimental floorfillers, right? Not a bit of it. Instead, Grand Blue offers a classical-minded, near beatless mix of improvised piano pieces and wall of sound ambience. It's perhaps a curious choice, musically, but the staggering quality of the production - sounding uniquely distant and crackly, yet close and comfortable - helps to make it an utterly engrossing listen.
