Florian is Paul Kalkbrenner's new release and it's heading to new "uncharted" waters.
"Motherfucker" is what the whole release should look and sound like. It simply sounds like Paul Kalkbrenner. It's dark, it's groovy and there's a healthy wave of strong undercurrents with a strong German techno flavor. The clip also underlines the music by creating a viable portrait of despair, mixed with anger resulting in a rampage, that I guess every creative or person goes through at least a couple of times.
"Feed you Head" is yet again an Avicii like German – Country – Techno thing. The cheesy feel of the track can be cured with the removal of the vocals, which would immediately put it into a "yeah that's good" category. The video falls in the same hole as the track does. It could be nice if it wasn't trying to ram a "deep and moving" massage down the viewers' throat, that doesn't really exist. I have gladly opened my mouth to get something special, but all I got was a cliché that was so big, I was hardly able to swallow it. He's tracks have always been known for a strong emotional load, but Florian is just way too much. There's no way of being über artistic while focusing on mianstream popularity. It just ends up being a cliché. There's a way to do very artistic and highly popular things, but that's what Gesaffelstein's "Pursuit" and "Hate or Glory" is. Even this homemade clip of "Moth" beats Florian by miles.
The presence of a good intention to make something interesting is clear, but the project ended like handing over a promising video game adaptation to Uwe Boll. If you're a fan of the German producer, than "Motherfucker" is worth listening and viewing. The rest of the release is not worthy of wasting precious minutes of your life. I've watched them so you don't have to. I stay with my fingers crossed, hoping that Paul managed to squeeze out the pink overly-emotional juice and his forthcoming album called simply "7" will feature healthy doses of emotions and trippy vibes.
