REVIEW: DE:BUG (DE)
Jürgen Heckel is Sogar. And Sogar is a more than adequate descendent of the excellent Shuttle358 CD on Tayler Deuprees´ label. Heckel concentrates on the balance between pads, bell-like octave chimes and bleepy gurgling and rustling, runs everything into itself, lets odd digital splashes run softly into an ocean of FM-synthesis only to send the last remaining sound particles back off on point-guard duty. A night like this can last forever. Surprises appear up to the last minute, if not because Heckel closes the album with his guitar, which no-one expected. People will be talking about this one for a while. The format of a winner!
