• perel Hermetica (digipak CD, £10.50)

    label: D.F.A.

    Shrouded in mystery, the Hermetica are a series of Egyptian-Greek didactic texts, meant to help the willing student better understand the cosmos, divinity and nature. On her debut album for DFA Records, German producer Perel takes the listener into deep space and explains it all. Over the course of nine tracks, she shares a striking amalgamation of house, new wave and kraut motifs that crystallise to form a unique sound.  The early 80’s sounds of a Eurythmics cassette Annegret Fiedler listened to at a young age prove influential on many tracks, where Perel combines her love of dance music with the stark vocal delivery of Annie Lennox.  The album is a focused, sonically adventurous work, where the DJ also happens to play every instrument, write every song and intone words of prophetic wisdom on every track.  CD format includes two extra tracks: ‘Pastarella Al Limoncello (Massimiliano Pagliara Remix)’ and ‘Die Dimension (Jayda G Remix)’.
