THN027 >> CHRISTIAN BLOCH - YOUNG AMERICAN LP 
          [10.02.2003 | Emotional Clickdub album by Christian]  

I guess Christian Bloch is a more than familiar name to most of 
the techno addicted people who are into downloading mp3s. 
Christian is a very active head since years with a huge archive 
of his works downloadable off his mp3.com page. So it's a great 
pleasure for Thinner that we may continue supporting the Aalborg/
Kobenhavn axis aside Curse, Danny Kreutzfeldt and Rasmus Møbius 
with the, meanwhile emigrated to Detroit, Christian. 
The album entitled "Young American" is a first chart of experience 
and events that took place since Christians emigration. Unlike most 
of his available works on mp3.com these songs stick together and 
need to be listened in full album context to get a proper entry to 
his passion and emotionality deep inside the songs. It's cold and 
minimal shaped, yet intelligent and romantic deep inside.

"Enter DTW" starts as solid dubby track, and carries already the 
main elements of the album, the very clacky closed hihats and overall 
clean and shaped sounds. "2030 memory" is very clean, with tidied-
up patterns and subtle portion of dubfunk behind. "Urban DK" is on 
the borderline between dubbed click experiment or idm electronica, 
with a sneaky filtered centipede-string which appears and disappears. 
"Pontiac Arrest" distant dubby stabs and a big echoed snare subtley
builds up until the dominant hihats appear in the spotlights and fade 
out again. An ode to the once flowering vehicle production in Detroit 
until it went all down? "Immigration Nation" sounds emotional through 
the dust of structured and unstructed hisses, pops and clicks. 
"Old Soul" sounds decent and carries a bit lonelyness through the
delayed pads i think. Maybe its the result of reviewing the timeline, 
wandering around the vast city of Detroit with its old and historical 
theatres where nowadays big car parkings are situated in. "Arizona Fall" 
builds a clean bridge between experimental and intelligent techno.

"Random Angel" is explained by Christian himself: "It is a subtly self
modulating  pad, you don't notice the changes, but they are there. Most 
of the time very subtle, but other times very sudden. There's two reasons 
I wanted to put it on the album. First of all it cleans you mind before 
"Night Drive". It is a long lonely walk in the cold winter night before 
you get to where you're going. Secondly: It's minimal to the extreme. 
It's a mindtool, flushes out distractions, something I personally  
really need."

Talking about "Night Drive", this song might be a surprise to many
people indeed ...  sweet, tender and very melancholy. Uncovers strong 
reactions from most.

Sebastian: "The artwork is new to Thinner - human beings aesthetically
photographed being naked. Related to the state of your album, and trying 
to get the message, is it for the sake of learning from almost zero there 
and now delivering a current analysis in musical form?"

Christian: "Exactly. A rebirth, a new life, new friends, new customs
and a new culture. I wouldn't call it an analysis, rather a response. An 
outburst of provoked feelings, an outlet for frustration, anger and fear. 
Most of all it's a reaction, not an analysis. I don't make music according 
to cold analysis, it's not calculated like that. To quote the late Bill 
Hicks: "Play the music from the fucking heart"

True.
