about

Collection of bastard tunes

When Karsten Pflum started making music about 12 years ago, he was using the moniker Slaphead Faun, but when his first releases were hitting the shelves in 2002 he discarded the name again. Since 2002 Pflum has released three albums, but now Slaphead Faun is back, although this time as the name of an album.

This album is a collection of bastard tunes produced between 2002 and 2007; they are the unreleased offspring of previous albums and EPs - the tunes that never made it on to the releases. There is a certain classic feel to the tracks, like they were in some way a yet unreleased collection of favourites.

Pflum's early works are very experimental with beautiful melodies, elaborated beats and unconventional ideas. Tricky and clever tunes that are catchy yet border seeking, and the tracks Tak 1 and Tak One are representatives of this period. During his career, Pflum's productions gradually became more edgy, the melodies more subtle and the drum programming more equilibristic. Tracks likePan BD Spiree and Six Step Chase shows how the music brings sound design into the mix, adding an extra layer of glitchy and quirky textures.

The album Slaphead Faun shows the whole Karsten Pflum spectre of sound - from the harsh and aggressive Thael Spir to the softer and almost magical Computer Weekend. It reveals different approaches to composition techniques and arrangement - Byrd or Fy Darkspedter are straight forward going, while tracks likeJazzkroge III or Make Rite are gradually morphing in new mysterious directions.

Slaphead Faun offers poppy melodic lines, psyched drill n' bass, old-school IDMand experimental electronica. It is a timeless dish of old and new tunes, a dish that altogether adds a new flavour to your ears. Poignant and seductive, like shadows manifistating in the dark.
