Ord.No.WR83 (EP)

The merino ep. Is the follower of the last lp. Which was called
`elektrotiki´. Electronics und exotica are still program for their
Track A1 has got this „tikifeeling", while track A2 and B1 deal with a
sort of electronic songwriting, with cheapo-beatboxes, but still
composed very classical to support their nice melodies. In track B2, the band plays like they are sequencers, but with a smile on their face. After
the end - lessly short summer, they will release the new album on atatak.

Ord.No. WR 73 (LP/CD)


The 1999 stroke of genius by the electronic pioneers from Düsseldorf.
Simple beautiful melodic lines embedded in an electronic sound environment, creating a hypnotic exotic athmosphere never heard before.

"..... elektrotiki is the name of the new "extended-mini LP" of the bad examples, that will be released also on CD. There are 6 tracks on the record, one brandnew and 5 new arrangements (no remixes) from songs of the first two CD`s.

For me it is something like a concept album, that tries to bring together electronic and exotic music. We play a kind of instrumental popmusic that sounds, compared to easy listening, very original and unique.

The continous appearance of electronic sounds, like the voice of an imaginary story-teller, combined with harmonical short second steps makes the music ear - catchy and pop-alike.

Nevertheless, the songs sound filmish and exotical: like an electronic jungle with a dub-influenced melodica-play, delays, sub-bass, real instruments like vibraphon and e-piano, computer-animated sounds and the self-sampling.

Produced by Pyrolator.

I`m glad, that this record appears on both CD and vinyl.

The original artwork of the famous Tiki - fan and - painter Moritz Rrr makes again another fantastic typical Ata Tak product."

Stefan Schwander, e-piano
