With five studio albums under his belt and highly-acclaimed single ‘Sky and Sand’ still doing the rounds, Germany’s Paul Kalkbrenner makes a high-profile return to the forefront for the long-awaited release of his sixth studio album.

Staying true to the sound that has fuelled his rise to fame throughout, ‘Guten Tag’ sees Kalkbrenner collect a 17-track album of raw Techno and movie-like pieces of music alike. In contrast to fellow brother and collaborator Fritz who based his recent second studio album around smooth vocals and sophisticated bass maneuvers, Paul plunges deep into the realms of electronic music for a far more diverse full-length that deals exclusively in instrumental tracks. Despite not being as thoroughly futuristic as one might’ve hoped, ‘Guten Tag’ remains a firm reminder that there is more to dance music than high-pitched synths and grinding Electro House.

Germany’s internationally renowned Paul Kalkbrenner of ”Berlin Calling” fame makes his way back to the forefront after last year’s release of his seventh album for the release of the first single off of his forthcoming eighth album. While there may never again be a record like ‘Sky And Sand’, the ceaseless melodic surges and minimalistic charm of Kalkbrenner’s latest release suggest that among the times of mainstream accumulation, electronica with creative soul still exists amid the European movement. And if ‘Das Gezabel’ is anything to go by, the German’s eighth album looks to go down as one of his most potent offerings to date.
