The Marx Trukker
Among Climetree Harbors
TwelveTwo • 14.08.2015
Four extended anthems by Berlin based The Marx Trukker between krauty electronica, tinkling house, shuffled minimal and IDM-styled breakbeats. Pressed on shiny blue wax in an edition of 200.
»›Among Climetree Harbors‹ is a woozy day trip across a tropical island … From what we can hear, the productions don’t even sound like they’re of this time – they feel like a snapshot of twenty years ago. With the elasticity of the synthesizer waves and the shimmering percussion, The Marx Trukker creates an aural representation of the ocean underneath a harsh sunny day.«
»A scintillating blend of IDM-filtered beats, coated in an inimitably exotic style. ›Among The Climetree Harbors‹ is itself a perfect balance of airy melodies, subtle effects processing and raucous beats; ›Where I Was A Child‹ is less loose, bringing forth a more structured beat and a beautifully melancholic wave of synth tones. On the B-side, you have the sparse chimes and dusty percussion way of ›And My Daddy Was A Polyphonic Prayer‹, and ›I Once Got Up And Then Kept Lying‹, a fluffy little pseudo house number containing more of Trukker’s gentle waves and sonic meditations.
