Review

Behind the production of Minilogue are Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson. With different origins they got together in 1996 and are today working full time as animalistic producers in their studio in Sweden. Sebastian has played different instruments since he was a kid and formed a pop band called DIM as a teenager. Marcus never played but listened to electronic music since he can remember, his first techno party in the 90s influenced him to start DJing while at school. About a year after they meet and became friends; the combination of Sebastian’s musical knowledge and perspective as musician with Marcus´ DJ skills and experience from the electronic scene led them into producing. After 10 successful years in the music business Marcus & Sebastian now are Minilogue, a musical and animal concept without the boundaries of genres. In the last year they’ve released on Crosstown Rebels (UK), Traum (DE), W.I.R (DE), Silver Planet (UK), Audiobahn (SWE), Size Doesn’t Matter (DE). The music is playful, ambitious, simple, complex, fun and melancholic and not at least; it is extremely Animalistic. They have an album ‘Animals’ ready to drop in 2007. Elephant’s Parade was played completely live with drum machines, synths and analogue sequencers. The duo like to record this way (compared to stuck infront of the computer) as they get more free in creating a specific and spontaneous feeling. Here one might imagine a big gang of crazy elephants getting lost on a psychedelic parade. In the middle of the track things are getting a bit weird, perhaps too much amarulla fruit, which gives the second part its childish and naïve playfulness. On the flipside Bird Song has a dirty, noisy, trippy vibe with a little touch of basic channel sound. Shake a tail feather!

WAG022 in the media

philip sherburne: “HUGE record, minilogue just keeps getting better. i love the almost jazzy, improvised feel of the keys. can't stop listening!”

Anja Schneider (Mobilee Rec.): “my favorite record for this time ! Thx. Big up. Both sides are excellent. ”

Giles Smith (secretsundaze UK): “Great, more gnarly gear from wagon repair. Love the live tweaky analogue sounding bass. Both sides are great will play.”

Groove Magazin (GER): “Minilogue haben gerade einen Lauf mit hymnischen, epischen Tracks, die sehr schön im Kontrast zwischen Noise und Harmonien oszillieren. „Birdsong“ strahlt durch seine Soundvielfalt und – na klar – Vogelsounds, die schön lo-fi verzerrt generiert werden, über einem endlos pulsierenden Beat”

Karotte: “hier find ich beide nummern ganz ganz groß!!! HIT!!!”

Laurent Garnier: “simply brilliant ”

Mike Shannon: “This one takes the cake... really some great work on the aside. A killer 101 bass line with some serious funk. This track screams Wagon Repair! Minilogue strikes gold again. ”

Tobi Neumann: “i think, its the b side called "birdsong". lovely!!! full support!”

Troy Pierce (Minus, Underline): “elephant parade?!?!? of course. big fat bomb! ”

Woody (Fumakilla): “both sides are very nice! favorite is da b.side!! thanks w. ”
