来自于瑞典的Axel Willner,化名为The Field.两年前发行了迷你专辑《Things Keep Falling Down》,今年四月推出首张专辑《From Here We Go Sublime》.极其简约的旋律,诗意化的内敛,甚具实验性质,听起来就像唱片坏了不断的跳针的古怪感觉.他的电子乾净又利落,只要放大音量就可以让人们在迷幻的极简节拍中舞动起来.
The Field mastermind Axel Willner came seemingly out of nowhere to do the impossible: up the profile of the already do-no-wrong Kompakt Records and keep the label's sound intact while giving it the twist nobody wanted to admit that it needed. In the same vein as (and on par with) Luomo's Vocalcity, From Here We Go Sublime could go down in history as the album that makes minimal techno accessible, without the need to add vocals or pander to a lower common denominator. But while Sublime is far from "stupid music," it's a refreshingly simple and aerated take on textural techno at a time when too many electronic musicians trip over their own mixer cords, and it thrives on thrust and clarity rather than on strained beauty. Pop music has always been about taking a few key ingredients and flying them to the moon. By looping only crucial elements--sometimes from his own machines and sometimes from others' (who knew that bits of '80s adult-contempo cheese could sound so wondrous?)--over basic kickdrums that highlight what's really important (the melodies), Willner has reflected the joy of pop on a record that doesn't sound like it's trying to win the gold medal, but unbelievably, undeniably does.
