LICENSED TO DIXON´S NEW MIX CD AND INCLUDED ON RADIO SLAVE´S FABRIC MIX CD!!! Peter Kruder is one of those emblematic names that lead a whole decade and inspire myriads of DJs, producers and clubbers all over the world. While he enjoys unprecedented success with Kruder & Dorfmeister and crossed into the platinum range (selling 1 million copies of the K&D Sessions album), he never lost track of the underground. Probably his stellar career would never have happened exactly this way if there wasn’t the other Kruder: the adventurous DJ, the deep producer, the challenging A&R at G-Stone, the producer behind DJ Hell’s highly acclaimed “Teufelswerk” album. In 15 years Peter Kruder has done only 3 singles under his own name though. When you get your ears around “Chordal” and “Law Of Return” it becomes totally clear why this rare outing happens on Macro. Kruder meets his Macro debut full on modernism - showcasing his deep, dark, dancefloor grounded side. With a crisp harmonic sequence reminiscent of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, “Chordal” hijacks brains on the dancefloor with its vacuum depth and sizzling details. “Law Of Return” on the other side is a Kruder signature take on deepness - solemn chords wrapped around a hypnotic groove give you tears of joy. A masterpiece!

James Holden (Border Community: “I really like the B side! Actually I like both sides really.. ”

John Tejada (Palette): “Chordal is really interesting and really refreshing. I think it's a great song and I'll play it for sure. “Law of Return” is also very nice. A very original blend of elements that works really well together. I wish there was a whole album of these. This is one of the coolest things I've heard in a while.”

Jon Marsh (The Beloved): “I really like “Chordal” - excellent subtle build executed with real panache.... way cool!”

Jorge Socarras (Indoor Life /: “I'm a longtime K&D fan, but I wouldn't have guessed whose track “Chordal” was. First off, it's gorgeous. But where K&D are dark, thickly atmospheric and laid back, this is bright, minimalist and energetic - the Nutcracker analogy resonates (literally) - and yet it does have a dark beating house heart that beckons passionate abandonment. That is to say it is in no way cold, or purely cerebral - an impressive balancing feat. “Chordal” also has a seminal quality, the sense that, in this case, dance music has just taken another evolutionary leap - not unlike first hearing “Trans-Europe Express”. As for “Law of Return”, I am highly critical, and don't like much, but this is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I use "gorgeous" because the term suits its pristine yet rich aesthetic. Here again is a remarkable balance in that the depth that makes house music so soulful is not eschewed in the name of minimalism, but laid bare with precise purity. It's as "brainful" as it is soulful. Robots with swivel hips. Music to dance to as much as about the idea of dancing. In short, I love it.”

Kiko Navarro (Pacha): “I like both tracks, especially “Chordal”, not an usual track, there is something special there. I really want to listen to it loud at the club!”

I'm very partial to "Law of Return;" really dig the rough, dubby, midtempo and melodic feel of this dark but sensual track. Can build for days and still take me to dreamland. Looking forward to playing it on this week's show.”
