Hans Platzgumer - Software
More by Hans Platzgumer:
PLATZGUMER has had intensive co-operations and studio sessions during the last years, that climaxed in great Electronica/Down Beat up to typical platzgumeresk Dark Funk Dub tracks. Among the guests were Doctor Nachtsrom (Mego), Superbonbon (Noise Product) and Anne LaPlatine.
Platzgumer processes the often cited 80s in his new songs, from Pop gravity á la SOFTWARE or Dub draugth like FEELING THE ICE, in his special way. He doesn't copy hooklines, but lets the influences the room they deserve. But, besides that, Platzgumer walks multi-cultural paths, that he hasn't walked yet - despite the band width of his work. A song like CHEEBA is setting standards. Deep Hip Hop beats along with fluffy House breaks is a basis for near Eastern singing style and melody.
For it is a year of offensive for Platzgumer, Software shows a coherent, not contradictory facet of his work. Pop is big, but H.P. will never surrender to conventions.
