Review

Einmaleins 09 comes with a small delay, but the wait is worth it. We’re glad to bring you “Franklin De Costa".Franklin delivers a two track killer. The a side “to remain” comes with a funky synth driven track where randomness rules! Metal sounds that go mental at the peak of the track and a groove that’ll keep you moving! On the flip “kill your cat” takes you on a deep, dark and twisted journey. Dubby sounds and mental noises pop up in an unexpected timing to complete this secret tool!

EINMALEINS009 in the media

Bastien Grine (Scandium): “The 2 tracks are really good ! Einmaleins has his own identity, I can feel it through all the records, I'm fan !!! ”

Beatfactor.net: “Franklin de Costa started as a drum player when he was just a teenager, in bands ranging from metal to big-band sound. He began producing music in his father home studio. Also known as R-Type or Tichy he produced techno music and released it on labels like: Propaganda, Karmarouge Noir, Trapez, Overdrive and the last one is Einmaleins, a German label from Berlin. Two Remain One EP has two tracks that fit perfect into the labels philosophy. Tech-house, minimal and techno: To Remain and Kill Your Cat. A side: To Remain has a groovy bass-line as a skeleton, over which the producer constantly builds up new sounds, but never to many. It’s just like he’s creating order thru a bunch of naughty modulated overtones. It’s perfect for clubs at a peek hour.On the other side we have a more dynamic track called Kill Your Cat. With the help of a powerful deep bass Mr. De Costa has created a bouncy rhythm surrounded by some nice snares. With a minimal composition this track is forcing you to dance.Franklin De Costa has released another great EP., capable of creating chaos on any dance floor. He is a producer we want to keep an eye on.”

BIGSHOT MAGAZINE (USA): “Here to bang out a two-track killer, Mr. De Costa creates a polyrhythmic palate of funk and randomness. Metallic hits, washes and audio silliness add a mental abduction for ring-modulated synth interludes, as the track peaks into a sound similar to that of a machine shop run amuck. With unexpected timing ringing through as the theme, this headstrong piece defines maddening minimalism”

Daniel Taylor:: “"To Remain" hat einen coolen Bassgroove, Kopfschieber. Klingt auf -8 übrigens besonders dirty !! Kommt rein in die Kiste...”

Dario Zenker: “Perfekte Platte zur perfekten Jahreszeit! wie nicht anders zu erwarten von Einmaleins und Mr. De Costa ! Play it rauf un runner!”

De:Bug 09/2006: “Zwei Tracks, auf denen Franklin noch mehr als bei seinen bisherigen Releases seine Vorliebe für verspielt vertrackte Sounds ausbauen kann und dabei fast unerwartet nüchtern den Groove laufen lässt. Eine EP, die sogar nicht drängend wirkt, aber dennoch einen unheimlichen Funk entwickelt und vor allem bei gesteigertem Zuhören immer mehr facetten zeigt. Fast ein soundmalerisch bedächtiges Release für Einmaleins, aber mehr als willkommen. Bleed ••••• ”

Dinky: “Exelent record ! humoristic,sexy and groovy !!”

DJ Pierre (Fuse / Brussels, BE: “I like the "kill the cat" track a lot !!”

I-DJ Magazine UK: “Einmaleins have been storming ahead lately with a solid string of dark, brittle club tracks. Franklin De Costa picks up the baton with aplomb here, deftly layering abstract touches over complex but instinctively danceable grooves. `To Remain` whirrs and fizzes with malicious intent, while `Kill Your Cat` employs a sickeningly growling bassline to knock the dancefloor sideways. 4/5”

Mark Henning:: “Two really groovy tracks - my favourite is 'kill your cat', will do serious damage on the dancefloor!”

Pan Pot: “Cool record,good working.Full support from us.”

Sian (Pokerflat): “Love the a and b side on this one actually, great production, killer bass end on b side, really cool peak time tracks. ”

Troy Pierce (Minus): “Sweet record, both tracks are great, kill your cat is for sure my pick”
