A sublime collection of music, the new CD by Richard
Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber is full
of uptempo beats with a downtempo feeling, grooves in soft
satin, spliff tunes with lyrical extravagance, and piano-pieces
in a dub style. There’s musical diversity galore on Dehli
9 : CD 1 contains the classical Tosca sound infused with lush instrumentation, and CD2 (the bonus CD) features twelve dubwise piano compositions.
For Dehli 9, Dorfmeister and Huber recaptured the spontaneity of their earliest collaborations. Their direct but freeform approach is quiet obvious. The sounds are drawn less from well-sorted sample banks or refined VST plug-ins, but from a range of live instruments that Richard and Rupert played during the two-year long sessions. After recording, the music was arranged on the computer, leaving room for some formidable vocal contributions. Anna
Clementi, who also sung on the Tosca album Suzuki, lends her
voice to "Oscar", "Me And Yoko Ono" and "Rolf Royce". The polymorphic hipster Earl
Zinger, a.k.a. Rob Gallagher from London, sings on "Wonderful". "Gute Laune" is
sung by MC
Tweed of Birmingham’s Different Drummer Sound System, "Every Day Every Night" is
hushed by Viennese super MC Sugar
B. and "Rolf Royce" features a contribution from the legendary Viennese
New Wave vocalist Graf
