The Users And The Gadgets

Minimal techno compilation of Corrado Izzo & Bernd Maus related tracks, plus some from his special guests in disguise (see John Tejada, MonoJunk, Losoul, Sasse, Marco Carola), through his own Gadgets label.

An intentionally monotone record I'd say; nothing extremely experimental or something, yet each track has its own textures, its own atmosphere and character. And while they're all highly functional in the mix, the sounds and overall feeling are soft and soothing, fitting for home as well as for the club. A cross between Germany's tech-dub paradigm with Finland's minimalist tradition and late '90s US techno (a lot of Plug Research artists in here).
