M:I:5 - MAßSTAB 1:5 (1997)


PURE MINIMAL BEAT DRIVEN ENJOYMENT
ARTIST`````````````M:I:5
ALBUM`````````````MAßSTAB (1997)
GENRE`````````````EXPERIMENTAL/TECHNO/DUB
YEAR```````````````1997


MY VIEW:
All I can say is that considering the mainstream electonic music scene in 1997, this album should be praised for its bold ultra-minimal approach. Some songs are based on just one finely crafted loop of music that is literally repeated for 5 min, non-stop, without any breaks or changes and it feels + sounds gooood.

ALBUM REVIEW:
Yet another of prolific Cologne producer Wolfgang Voigt's guises, M:I:5 features his style of minimal bouncy dub bass beat techno that he would later further refine as Studio 1. Unlike the sparse palette of sounds present in his Studio 1 recordings -- strictly beats and nothing else -- Voigt chooses to integrate some colorful synth notes and other playful yet austere high-frequency sounds into the throbbing rhythms and creative structures of M:I:5. Following his debut on the legendary Structure label, Structuralism (later reissued on Auftrieb), Voigt has released his M:I:5 records primarily on his Profan label. In early 1998, he compiled much of his work under this guise on the Maßstab 1:5 album, released on Profan.

Thanks a lot for this great album. It is nice to find people with similar musical tastes. Compared to the current state of electronic dance music this is gold.

Any idea on where I can find compilation Kompakt 1 on Profan. Thanks!!

I have no idea where to find it. I'd like to have it also so if you come across it let me know. Greetz.

I just stumbled upon your blog yesterday while searching for the M 1:5 and only had a glance until now - I like the wide variety of styles that you present here.

I agree - today minimal has nothing to do with the meaning of the word "minimal"...
