Curt Cress worked as a producer and studio musician, maybe most notably for Nina Hagen, but he also recorded his own music, percussive instrumentals by preference. Like krauty House Tracks with a little overambitious live-drumming. Pretty unique stuff. The key track here clearly is 'Dschung Tek', originally recorded in '91, some kind of proto-trance backed with elephant trumpets and bird chirping as well as steel drums and synthetic string pads. Cress' drumming sometimes sounds like the Safri Duo in a parallel universe, in which the Safri Duo was actually cool. There's a version without the live drums as well. B side features three more tracks from 1983.
