2021 repress. Tolouse Low Trax aka Detlef Weinrich presents four tracks on Karaoke Kalk, two of which are remixes by befriended artists. His friend Miles, also known as one-half of the experimental industrial techno and dark ambient duo Demdike Stare, puts hand on the track "Sussing", originally released on Tolouse Low Trax's album Jeidem Fall in 2012 (KK 066CD/LP). He covers it with an enigmatic, shadowy veil in terms of sounds, space, and obscure driving arpeggios in order to give the track a "brighter haze" feeling. A subliminal hypnotic transformation that swings with a unique dark and demanding drive. The second remix was done by Wolf Müller, a Düsseldorf based musician that released two highly acclaimed EPs on the German DIY label Themes for Great Cities. His profession as a percussionist calls the tune as he mutates the original track "Jeidem Fall" into a tribal celestial dance tune that jacks with an Afro-Baroque elegance. Also, the two EP contributions of Tolouse Low Trax himself move on very different terrains but seem to come out of the same experimental laboratory. With "Vindeland" he delivers a track full of dark synth lines and drunken shuffled patterns that morphs into a nervous soigné sensation. In contrast his arrangement "Eisenbahnzunge" starts with a celestial arpeggio until a strange alienated voice appears and everything melts layer by layer into an elliptical ambient experiment beyond the usual definition. Both tracks are deeply rooted in Tolouse Low Trax's very own spontaneous minimal hardware approach of producing bold, hypnotic dance-not-dance music that shall not only illuminate the so-called freaks.
