ROMAN FLUGEL [DIAL/FRANKFURT]

Listen - https://soundcloud.com/roman-fluegel

It all started with one of these Chicago Trax compilations on DM/STREETSOUNDS. As a reaction to his thirsting for more of these crazed beats from overseas and with a view to his tight budget, the greatest hits of these expensive imported 12" singles were soon released in the form of a compendium.

DJs und Delirium record sellers Ata and Heiko MSO from Frankfurt felt the same. At first they thought someone was making fun of them. It sounded too authentic and unique. The music Fl gel and Wuttke had presented to their label Ongaku and Klang Elektronik as Acid Jesus or, rather, Alter Ego, couldn't possibly come from the little neighbouring town Darmstadt. In Frankfurt, that kind of sound made people think of Detroit.

The electronic intellectual's productivity is virtually unparalleled and Roman Flugel, the producer, DJ and label co-owner of Ongaku/Klang/Playhouse has meanwhile become a gentle giant in the German electro scene. With his own personal style and the privilege of being independent from the usual constraints of the music industry. A free spirit instead of a sheep. His solo project as Soylent Green (see the latest "La Forca Del Destino" compendium) is just as much of a must as his Alter Ego project
with Wuttke, rigorously affirming techno down to the very last detail. He and Wuttke also count as techno Teuton Sven V th's favourite producers, who booked the team to produce a series of his own music. Roman's work as Eight Miles High and Ro 70 show his quieter side, while the remixes (e.g. for Daft Punk, The Human League, Primal Scream, Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue) and tracks under his own name (just think of the Arcade rave of "Geht's Noch") are light dancefloor affirmations.

Roman also champions the cause of this in his job as an entertainer. Tried and tested by the stadium and pop hit "Rocker", Flugel and Wuttke can be proud of being able to set any auditorium in the world on fire with their live set. DJ Roman Fl gel can say the same of himself. Be it his sets at Offenbach's Robert-Johnson, Amnesia on Ibiza or Berlin's Tollhaus Berghain/Panorama Bar: instead of disappearing in trivial and meaningless elevator clicks, he prefers to make his way through 20 years of "rave". Contemporary music that includes bleeping house or quirky techno meets futuristic Italo-disco and electronica devoid of all provenance. There was a time when you'd call that kind of sound acid house, released cheaper by the dozen on compilations. It all turns full circle again.
