Alter Ego - Decoding The Hacker Myth

Label: Harthouse/Eye Q
Year: 1996
Styles: Ambient Techno, IDM

Review: (

This German collective works with what could be best described as "listening techno" — electronica designed not for dancing, but for laid-back home listening. This means that each track is organized more like a song, with enough movement to keep things from becoming repetitive; on songs like "Brom," they drop out most of the beats in favor of a sort of organized ambiance. The majority of the album is pleasant in a beepy and bubbly sort of way, and very organic-sounding — a bit like Spring Heel Jack without the breakbeats. Excellent electronica for home use.
