Baustoff [Popmusik Für Rohrleger] Ambient, Electro Patenbrigade: Wolff Patenbrigade: Wolff have had a couple of releases behind them since their debut album 'Wekzeugbuch' in 2003 and their main focus have been more ambient influenced and since they are big fans of heavy duty construction and especially crane conductors, therefore they presented their music as "Electro ambient for tower crane conductors". But when Sara Noxx did some vocals for a couple of tracks for their ninth release 'Demokratischer Sektor', it probably laid the ground for the vocal featuring album 'Bustoff [Popmusik Für Rohrleger]' where people like Antje Schulz (In Strict Confidence), Nadine Stelzer (ex In Strict Confidence), André Hartung (Sero.Overdose) and Alexander Pitzinger (Painbastard) bring their voices to come together in a symbiosis with Patentbrigade:Wolff's music. This 19 track long album offers some nice tunes, but unfortunately a lot of stuff you just click by as well. Almost between every song there is a track featuring Dr. Mark Benecke where some ambient sounds are blended together with a phone like voice. These are all skip able according to me and therefore we are suddenly down to 12 tracks. The first track and the last track are simply intro and outro and suddenly we are down to 10 tracks. Now we're talking. There is two tracks on the album that are instrumental, "Arbeit an der Oberleitung" and the title track "Popmusik für Rohrleger" where the last mentioned one is a heavily Kraftwerk inspired tune and it's for sure my favourite track on the album. I love to listen to it while the bus or tram goes over the bridge on my way home from work and see all the city lights shine in the beginning night time. The tracks featuring Nadine and Antje from In Strict Confidence are all a bit slower and mainly focus on their beautiful voices, where the ambient sounds push forward their vocals instead of trying to match up. Well done. The song "Das Kraftfeld" featuring André from Sero.Overdose is also one of my favourite tracks, dance floor hit by all means. Same goes for Stefan Leukert's (The Decades) "Fehler 404" The thing about this album is quite like what it must have been like finding gold during the gold rush in the middle of the 19th century. You have to get rid of allot of sand to find the tiny gold grains. 350
