Kucharczyk – BrakPosted: April 4, 2016
Wojciech Kucharczyk, the bespectacled techno demon from Poland, comes back with a new album of tongue-in-cheek 120 BPM sample-laden insanity. Brak (“lack” in Polish) is filled with absurd sense of humor, and the titles switching from Polish to English combine weird puns (“Kanye was not here, he was in the West”). The album combines a stream of consciousness approach with broken synths, warped melodies and an awkward sense of rhythm. Kucharczyk is a bit like James Ferraro, but more danceable (with the exception of some weirdo freakouts here and there) and somehow more digestible. Highly recommended! For the mad scientists.
