Und nochmal unsere Thüringer Bassrolle Robag Wruhme. Diesmal mit einer Mix-CD auf Kompakt, welche am 17.01.2010 released wurde. “Wuppdeckmischmampflow” heisst das gute Stück und knüpft vom Prinzip her an die “Metawuffmischfelge” an. So erwartet euch also ein buntes Potpourri aus feinsten Tracks, welche Robag digital durch den Fleischwolf gedreht hat. Man kann es nicht so gut beschreiben, man muss es einfach hören. Oder um es mit Honkis Worten zu sagen: “[…] die Scheibe kann was! Einiges sogar.”
In the comforting seclusion of the Spreewald, a vast forest area south of Berlin, somewhere along the famous 250km long Gherkin-Bicyclepath, a man from Thuringia found a home with a pig. This was where he wanted to rest. He just wanted to rest, daydream, eat gherkins and possibly drink a glass of good wine here and then. And so it was. He rented the house, hung out eating gherkins with the pig and let it all hang out. He couldn’t care less about everything else. But then something happened… he was kissed by The Muses and recorded a mix CD. This man is called Gabor Schablitzki, better known as Robag Wruhme, 1/2 Wighnomy Bros, Themroc, Machiste, Rolf Oksen or even as Die Dub Rolle. His discography is as stunning as the list of his DJ appearances. There’s not a soul with the slightest interest in electronic music who has ever danced to a track by this extraordinarily gifted producer. He’s one of the few that truly created his own signature sound. A Robag track is a Robag track is a Robag track. Likewise, as a DJ he hardly manages to hide his genius. This swinging sexiness of his own productions serves as a framework for his otherwise rather eclectic universe in which Thom Yorke and Germany’s most cranky comedian Helge Schneider talk the same language, where con amore jazz buddies with thumping techno. Robag’s trademark is his excessive use of reverb effects. Like black holes they suck in and spit out the most varied influences. It’s a kind of magic. “WUPPDECKMISCHMAMPFLOW” is Robag Wruhme’s latest mix CD and could be considered as an immaculte conception. It was crafted incidentally between feeding the pig and unscrewing gherkin glasses, so to say. Far away from the hectic turmoil of clubs and airports, he began toying around with his favourite tracks and songs. It turned out as a very intimate, wonderful piece of music that Robag needed to share with us. It’s boom time for the bespoke reverb effects. He gingerly interweaves music by Moderat, Four Tet, Ricardo Villalobos, Whomadewho, Danny Norbury, Trentemöller and Tiefschwarz into a greater ONE. “WUPPDECKMISCHMAMPFLOW” became an honest, touching, life-enhancing affair. The perfect co-driver, room mate, old sport, dear abby and pocket hand warmer.
