Robag Wruhme - Wuppdeckmischmampflow

If there is one thing I will always fight for on this website it is the diversity, the richness and the eclecticism of the electronic music. The new compilation of Robag Wruhme with an unpronounceable name “Wuppdeckmischmampflow” is the perfect example. Thanks to Kompakt Recordings, we received two copies of this mix CD that you can win. Nothing easier, first you need to become fan of Actualités Electroniques and then you need to like this Facebook post. I will decide before the end of January who are the winners.

In the comforting seclusion of the Spreewald, a vast forest area south of Berlin, somewhere along the famous 250km long Gherkin-Bicyclepath, a man from Thuringia found a home with a pig. This was where he wanted to rest. He just wanted to rest, daydream, eat gherkins and possibly drink a glass of good wine here and then. And so it was. He rented the house, hung out eating gherkins with the pig and let it all hang out. He couldn't care less about everything else. But then something happened... he was kissed by The Muses and recorded a mix CD.

This man is called Gabor Schablitzki, better known as Robag Wruhme, ½ Wighnomy Bros, Themroc, Machiste, Rolf Oksen or even as Die Dub Rolle. His discography is as stunning as the list of his DJ appearances. He has notably a historic lineage of mixes for Kompakt by the likes of Tobias Thomas, Superpitcher, DJ Koze, Michael Mayer and Ewan Pearson. There's not a soul with the slightest interest in electronic music who has ever danced to a track by this extraordinarily gifted producer. He's one of the few that truly created his own signature sound. A Robag track is a Robag track.

Likewise, as a DJ he hardly manages to hide his genius. This swinging sexiness of his own productions serves as a framework for his otherwise rather eclectic universe in which Thom Yorke and Germany's most cranky comedian Helge Schneider talk the same language, where con amore jazz buddies with thumping techno. Robag's trademark is his excessive use of reverb effects. Like black holes they suck in and spit out the most varied influences. It's a kind of magic.

"Wuppdeckmischmampflow" is Robag Wruhme's latest mix CD and could be considered as an immaculate conception. It was crafted incidentally between feeding the pig and unscrewing gherkin glasses, so to say. Far away from the hectic turmoil of clubs and airports, he began toying around with his favourite tracks and songs. It turned out as a very intimate, wonderful piece of music that Robag needed to share with us. It's boom time for the bespoke reverb effects. He gingerly interweaves music by Moderat, Four Tet, Ricardo Villalobos, Whomadewho, Danny Norbury, Trentemöller and Tiefschwarz into a greater ONE.

After hearing all the album, I must confess that I never imagined such a large range of good and various tracks of electronic music in a CD. It begins by the crying violins of Danny Norbury, followed notably by the charming track of Ricardo Villabos with a killing beat (let’s say as usual!). What is incredible is the touch of Robag who adds his personal feeling in each part of the compositions. It’s a good musical mixture, with great elements from Tiefschwarz, but also Chateau Flight and even Moderat. The track from Chateau Flight “Cosmic Race” reworked by Robag is certainly the best track of the album, with funky samples that sound like a thin guitar. There is also, in the same atmosphere the lovely track of Four Tet, with a female looped voice that will tease your senses exactly like “Robellada” from Robag Wruhme himself.

What a fantastic musical trip! "Wuppdeckmischmampflow" became an honest, touching, life enhancing affair. And you have a chance to win the album for free, so don’t hesitate to participate. The perfect co-driver, roommate, old sport, Dear Abby and pocket hand warmer. A must have for your discography of electronic music.
