    Get a rare insight into the electronic world of Dataphysix, its highly influential sound aesthetic and the mysterious Dopplereffekt unit.

    Anyone who has ever experienced the approach of a vehicle sounding a siren knows about the Doppler effect. Not less astonishing than physics is the mysterious electronic music production unit that goes by the name of _(artist-name)Dopplereffekt_. There are almost no interviews in existence and hardly any live appearances have been made by the group. The composers hide behind strange German pseudonyms whereas the song titles and lyrics are in English and make up a strange mixture of scientific, sexually explicit and political allusions. Dopplereffekt’s music is also highly eclectic and unusual. Even if at first sight the forefathers _(artist-name)Kraftwerk_ seem to be more than present, Dopplereffekt have developed their very own and highly influential sound aesthetic in modern electronic music. Listen to their classic album _(album-title)Gesamtkunstwerk_ for starters. The brain behind this mythical group is scientist _(artist-name)Heinrich Mueller_ aka _(artist-name)Drexciya_, _(artist-name)Arpanet_, _(artist-name)Japanese Telecom_, _(artist-name)Der Zyklus_ and many more, and their music today is more experimental but also more daring, mature and interesting than ever. Check also the experimental album _(album-title)Linear Accelerator_, released on International Deejay Gigolos, or _(album-title)Calabi Yau Space_ on Rephlex, for a beautiful melodic and rhythmic journey into the world of theoretical physics and string theory. Great melody, rhythm and harmony begins with sound itself and it is on this level that Dopplereffekt is concentrating. This is techno in the truest sense of the word.
