INTERVIEWS

    ""Yes melody is important for me. After all I try to make music.""
  • Yot (DE)

    "Jürgen Heckel, ein Exil-Nürnberger in Paris, hat mir mit seinem zweiten unter dem Namen Sogar veröffentlichten Album “Stengel” den kompletten Herbst 2002 versüßt. Zugfahren, Spazierengehen, Supermarkt - so oft hatte ich schon lange nicht mehr den Walkman dabei, um nur einer, genau dieser Platte zu lauschen. Schönstes Knistern und Rauschen mit sehnsuchtsvollen, dezentesten Melodien - unglaublich gut!"
  • Stylus Magazine (US)

    "Sogar is Jürgen Heckel, an experimental electronic artist who was born in 1970 in Nürnberg, Germany and currently resides in Paris. Heckel began his musical career as a guitarist for various experimental musical groups in Germany and France—you know, the noise, feedback kinds of groups that we all know and love."

    "The pace at which Taylor Deupree's Brookklyn-based minimalist label 12k is putting out records seems to be accelerating in tandem with its reputation as a leading light of cutting-edge electronics. One of the most recent artists to benefit is Paris-based electronic musician Jurgen Heckel, who records under the name Sogar and whose recent album Basal has been compared by some to that of label-mate Shuttle358."
