The Ruhr valley-raised trio have been heavily involved in the underground dance music scene for many years and the soulfulness of their output is unquestioned. Now Machinekiss might come as their masterpiece. Recorded over the past three years the album´s nine tracks evolved out of a long in-depth investigation of blues and funk recordings from 1910 to 1980. As the sole sonic sources, the musicians - Johannes Ehmann, Gregor Pottmeier and Krischan Wesenberg - use their own music collections, making the work a reflection of their personal and collaborative history and backgrounds.Micro particles of guitar chords, organ sounds and drum elements reappear in new contexts and are fused with contemporary synthesizer and bass motifs. The results are deep, rhythmic, complex and eccentric, leading the listener into the melancholic, more obscure sides of urban life. The Homewreckers have previously released on Thee Blak Label/Radikal Fear (Chicago), Groove Attack Productions (Cologne), Unique Records (Düsseldorf) and Circus Company (Paris). Featured Artists Johannes Ehmann Bass, Digging, Sampling, Arrangement, Slicing Gregor Pottmeier Organs, Reeds, Fractured sampling, Dequantizising Krischan Wesenberg Drums, Engineering, Shaping, Balancing
