Camryn Marquez Amazing, analogue, techno textures on this album. This is so European, so techno, so everything I love about the genre in a modern context. I love how this band finds a way to inject melodic, atmospheric synthesizer passages into their musical framework. It's a minimal, fun, and cerebral work. I look forward to this band's future releases. Favorite track: Fjkslktr (feat. Modeselektor).

about

Fjaak’s path led them from the periphery to the centre and from there further through the world. Their debut album for Monkeytown is as much of a summary of what had happened in the previous three years as it is an artistic statement. Fjaak combines the energetic peak-time sound of the Berlin-based trio’s acclaimed Techno singles like “Unten / Oben” with sophisticated breakbeat arrangements and atmospherically dense Ambient textures. These eleven tracks are the provisional highlight in a unique success story which started aside club culture’s conventions and to this day refuses to compromise.

Fjaak draws its overwhelming power from Fjaak’s signature hands-on mentality and radiates the explosive charm of their live sets. In early 2016, Fjaak let FACTmag into their Berlin studio for an Against The Clock feature, the result of which - an anthemic Techno jam - showcases the trio’s spontaneous working process. “Against The Clock” sounds rough and unpolished, just like it’s supposed to be: Fjaak capture their jam sessions’ energy on Fjaak. Apart from the previously released tracks to be found on the single “Wolves / Pray For Berlin”, the album also features a reworked version of the Fjaak classic “Gewerbe 15”.
