Review: When he started work on Drown, his fifth album, Fritz Kalkbrenner took a conscious decision not to use any vocals. Given that his artistic reputation was partly built on crafting songs underpinned by lucid blends of left-of-centre house and techno, it's a bold move. Happily, his decision has paid off. Instead of focusing on lyrics and song structure, Kalkbrenner has laid down a fine selection of fluid, attractive and emotion-rich instrumentals that sit somewhere between high-grade club fodder and daydreaming home listening far. Warm, melodious, intricate and lovingly produced, this is house and techno for hazy early mornings and laidback afternoons.
