Max Graef: Rivers Of The Red Planet

Max Graef Rivers Of The Red PlanetThank God It’s Flodoard Quolke’s Funky Music Friday on Procrasti-Nation.EU! On the menu today we’ve got a whole bunch of funkiness with a side of weirdness: “Max Graef – Rivers Of The Red Planet“.

The tracks have titles like “Superswiss“, “Speed Metal Jesus” or “Buchsenoffner” and the record sounds like there is something wrong with Star Trek.

Or very right. I don’t know. There’s a bit of everything in there, funk, soul, house, electro. Don’t expect any help from the official text that accompanies the stream though:

Rivers of the Red Planet is Max Graef’s first full-length and Tartelet’s latest album project. It’s as ambitious and deviously entertaining a record as you’ll hear in 2014, the fulfilment of Graef’s desire to make anything but another contemporary house music album. At any given moment, Rivers of the Red Planet feels like it could have been recorded through the smoke at a jazz club in the booth at a techno club 30 years from now or inside an MPC stocked with crusty dollar-bin samples…
