Faust / Dälek, “T-Electronique”, Derbe Respect, Alder
T-Electronique was taken from Faust’s 1999 album Ravvivando. Its bass-heavy, loping drum loop flails like cold, machine-generated funk, but the heavenly organ clusters overhead are pristine and sweet, and could only have come from Germany. Brooks references “filthy tongues slowly severed” and “the constant threat that we easily forget,” and aligns himself perfectly with the claustrophobic paranoia of the track. This version of T-Electronique should be a godsend to anyone into hypnotic drone-funk.
