Funkstorung

Munich's Funkstörung have been described as the German Autechre, a description which probably has less to do with their sound than the interest the group has attracted to their Musik Aus Strom label. Similar to Autechre's Skam label, Musik Aus Strom (German, roughly, for "synthesizer music") became one of the more collectible, obsessed-over underground electronica labels, coveted as much for the Skam-esque enigma about them as the increasing exchange between the two labels' rosters (a connection the two sealed in 1997 with the release of the limited-edition Mask series, a collaboration between the labels and their respective artists).

Composed of Michael Fakesch and Chris de Luca, Funkstörung's recent excursions into dark, muddy, lo-fi electro and instrumental hip-hop were preceded by a number of relatively straight-ahead techno records on Bunker sublabel Acid Planet beginning in 1994. The duo was contacted soon after by none other than Aphex Twin's Rephlex label about releasing some material, but stalled plans and unanswered phone calls led the pair to forego the label-shopping route early on, and most of their most significant early material (with the exception of a few compilation tracks and a single for Compost) appeared through MAS. Although the Bunker singles far outnumbered their later self-released material, MAS 12"s such as "Zeit," "Breakart," and "Artificial Garbage" composed the group's more sophisticated, mature sound.

The hotly pursued Mask series did much for the group's visibility; limited to between 100 and 500 copies per release (in successively increasing quantities), Mask releases included tracks from Funkstörung and Skam's Jega, Bola, and Boards of Canada. In 1999, Studio !K7 released the remix collection Additional Productions, and Funkstörung returned one year later with their full-length debut, Appetite for Disctruction. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

Nice smooth trip out.
"Musik aus Strom" should be translated to "Music from Electricity" or even more accurately, but maybe a little confusing "Music from Current" (as in Amperes and Rivers ambigously).
I still jam to them. I wish I could have seen them live in the states..
Meh. Techno is good. I could care less what the label it, because for all the labeling in the world, if the music sucks, then it doesnt matter.

This is OK, but this track, and many of the others I've heard on this station, don't fit my concept or definition of "trip-hop," which in my view is closer to (if not a subgenre of) downtempo electronica. This track seems to be closer to what I call ambient breakbeat (and the one following it, which just started playing is about as far from trip-hop as I could imagine). This is nothing remotely similar to music by groups like Portishead, Morcheeba and Lamb.
