3 stars Primitive in spirit but a bit sophisticated with the electronics.

Far away from the usual "cosmic" idiom found in this category, Monoton's (Konrad Becker, Austria) "Blau-MONOTONPRODUKT 02 26Y++", released in 2006, delivers a very personal effort, which relies mostly on its electronic drumming figures accompanied here and there with distant and attractive minimalistic melody or bass lines.

To offer some kind of referential, because by 2006, lots of musicians were already involved in this kind of electronic paths, let's go back to an early and clear starting point Conrad Schnitzler's own 1974 "Blau", without the random experimentation and roughness, but with the same careless "stardom" attitude.

A release which entire focus is low-keyed, minimalistic and detached, but good enough as to expect more, will certainly be hard to sound or rate beyond the infamous ***3 PA stars.
