Palisade Mount EP (Preview)
( ;D --> Dopplereffekt‘s Heinrich Mueller has teamed up with singer/composer Victoria Lukas for a new collaborative audio-visual project, Zerkalo.
This week sees the release of two 12-inch EPs by Zerkalo, both on Clone Records‘ new sub-label Aqualong, dedicated to the legacy of Detroit electro myth-makers Drexciya (of which Mueller, real name Gerald Donald, was almost certainly an active member).
Mueller has never confirmed his role in Drexciya, and since 1995 has been primarily associated with his Dopplereffekt and Arpanet projects. Combining stone-cold Detroit electro/techno sounds and aesthetic preoccupations with, er, eugenics, totalianiarism and particle physics, Dopplereffekt’s wonderfully severe records are pretty much all classics; the Gesamtkunstwerk compilation, first released on International Deejay Gigolos in 1999 and later re-issued by Clone Classic Cuts, is the best introduction to their work. Currently a duo comprised of Mueller and Michaela To-Nhan Bertel, Dopplereffekt remain a shadowy entity but have recently broken cover to play a run of live shows (see picture above) and this month gave their first ever face-to-face interview in The Wire.)
