ADN’ Ckrystall – Frankraut [MMS606]

French electronic pionner, ADN’ Ckrystall, became a legend in the Minimal-Synth scene when his first album “Jazz’Mad” (from 1982) was rediscovered and re-edited via the two biggest labels in the genre : Minimal Wave (circa 2005) and Dark Entries (circa 2012). Following this new interest, a bunch of unreleased materials reappeared and went out mostly directly through Erick (ADN)’s control, under compilations, coffrets (V.O.D.) or albums that never had the chance to come out before… But one piece was still missing, the album just following “Jazz’Mad” called “Frankraut” and here comes the story… During the covid year of 2021, Erick finally found the tapes forgotten somewhere at his parents house since 1984. After relistening to it he decided to bring them back to life. “Frankraut” was a project born from the reflexion about the concept of marrying (and not the opposite) the romantico-poetico side : naive melodies flirting with research and experimentations in the electronic music “à la française” like illustration, “bilbliothèque sonore” (library) or music for film… and the cold, mechanic, motorik, hypnotic, psychedelic free explosive and creative side of the Krautrock.
