Happy New Year and my very last Hifly News Section entry ever.
Lars and I would like to wish you all a happy new year and a prosperous 2013. As they say, all good things come to an end, which also means that this is my ultimate, final and very last entry in the Hifly News Section ever. My decision doesn't come out of the blue but I've been wanting to move on for a good while. It has been a most exciting, thrilling, adventurous, creative and hilarious 6 and a half year's experience, which has given and taught me so much during the process. I'll now enjoy some time off but will make my return quite soon, when I'm ready for new adventures. I wish Lars Gregers the very best of luck in the future. Thanks for everything. Klaus Boss

Ulrich Troyer meets Georg Blaschke 'Somatic Soundtracks'
Ulrich Troyer is a Austrian born, now living in Vienna artist, whom you've most likely heard of thanks to his excellent 'Songs For William' album on Deep Medi last year. The new CD album (which has been available digitally since early November)' Somatic Soundtracks' is a selection of compositions from Ulrich Troyer created between 2010 and 2012. The pieces were produced in close collaboration and especially for dance performances by choreographer Georg Blaschke. Although it's created for and aimed at dance performances, most of the tracks vaguely carries an audible or recognizable rhythmic intonation. Although these tracks are great in their own right it's not until the tail end of the album morphosis that a distinctive dancefloor takes place on the tender rub 'Song for Heide and last not least the heavily Dub Reggae referencing album closer 'Back From Serbia' Regardless of perspective and perception this a thoroughly listenable and enjoyable album, which will be released on CD, January 13.

Piano Interrupted 'Two By Four'
Piano Interrupted is the project of London-based pianist and composer Tom Hodge and French electronic producer Franz Kirmann. After a series of three EPs released over the last three years, they are now set to release their first full-length album entitled 'Two By Four' on Days Of Being Wild. The duo known as Piano Interrupted, has a conceptual foundation in and takes cue from the digital manipulation of musical phrases played by piano and other instruments. Furthermore the entire project also started from a commercial side of things which (fortunately for us) went wrong. What we have here are a full body of work, which happens to be as abstract as it's still accessible through the pleasant and lush 'easiness' of acoustic elements paired with electrical fields of static noise that are interwoven with such ease and elegance. Even the more rhythmically toned tracks, doesn't lack anything in regards to complexity and seamless arrangements. At this time I must add that any album with such brilliant titles as 'Bulbus', will receive at least one if not two stars for the name alone. The music speaks for itself though, which simply means this is one of the best fusion albums of 2012. Already released on Days Of Being Wild earlier this month.

Ossie 'Ignore' out on Hyperdub now.
Ossie has yet again returned after last year's Hyperdub debut making a name for himself with the acclaimed, 'Set The Tone' EP. With releases under the Ossie and Black Orange Juice name plus dj performances, he has been well busy over the last year. 'Ignore EP' consists of two chopped up tracks on the Garage side of things. Lead track 'Ignore' sees vocalist Tilz, singing about the game of winding up the opposite sex. It's a well-known scenario but this interpretation honestly doesn't do anything for me. 'Find Me' is however right up my alley with stuttering vocals, murky and rolling bass wobbles, fine-tuned break beats and airy feeling. Add to that the addition of a jangling guitar, which makes a perfect companion to the already existing elements. Out now on Hyperdub.

Billy Roisz 'Walking The Monkey' out on Mego
Billy Roisz is one of the best-known figures on the austrian experimental scene. Active for over decade as a video- and sound artist she has collaborated with names such as dieb13, Angélica Castelló, Burkhard Stangl, Silvia Fässler, Martin Brandlmayr, Toshimaru Nakamura, Mario de Vega, eRikm and Ilpo Väisänen. On 'Walking The Monkey', which happens to be the debut of Roisz, the six tracks of the album range from the calm and controlled gloom to the exuberant and relentlessly flickering white noise cascades. Rest assured that Roisz goes all in on the trademark noise features, which is evident from the beginning through the spiraling shrills and looming thunder of 'Spinning In Ecstasy'. Album standout for me is the growling sound oscillating on 'Feeding The Monsters', which seems only too fitting a description from what is to be heard. 'Under The Influence' rounds it all off neatly with a meditative excursion into protrusive and jangling guitar territory. Although chaotic and utterly complex, Billy Roisz succeeds in corresponding freely with her machinery, whilst still maintaining full control.
