A nice surprise from this new artist and new label. About time new will also be refreshing in our trancey musical world. Krumelur is Fredrik Larsson, from the talent infested Malmoe in Sweden. His musical vision is a bit different than the Malmoe MPDQX gang though. It carries in side a steady, though subtle, stream of insaneness. Lets say that if the Finnish would make minimal psytrance- that how it would sound...
Krumelur offers truly minimal yet totally psychedelic music, showing that minimal music doesn't have to be boring. The album offers a great variety of music, slow and fast, hard and soft, middle-of-the-night mind twisters to almost jazzy slow trance. It's all very interesting and never boring, there's always something happening with liquid sounds, squeaks and tweaks, crazy scratching noises, surprising turns and twists in the story. It really succeeds in painting around you a different world from another dimension. This CD dwells quite a lot in my CD player since I got it- it's great for home listening and there are also guaranteed floor stormers like Big Troublems (T7), Knorr (T5) and for weirder moments Nuts (T2). The sound can use an uplift, especially in the kick-bass department, but this is still very enjoyable and highly recommended.
