Peter Kruder is one of those emblematic names that lead a whole decade and inspire myriads of DJs, producers and clubbers all over the world. While he enjoyed unprecedented success with Kruder & Dorfmeister and crossed into the platinum range (selling well over 1 million copies of the K&D Sessions album), he never lost track of the underground. Probably his stellar career would never have happened exactly this way if there wasn’t the other Kruder: the adventurous DJ, the deep producer, the challenging A&R at G-Stone, the producer behind DJ Hell’s highly acclaimed “Teufelswerk” album. In 15 years Peter Kruder had done only 3 singles under his own name though.
When you get your ears around “Chordal” and “Law Of Return” it becomes totally clear why this rare outing happens on Macro. Kruder meets his Macro debut in full-on modernism mode - showcasing his deep, dark and dancefloor-grounded side. With a crisp harmonic sequence reminiscent of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, “Chordal” hijacks brains on the dancefloor with its vacuum depth and sizzling details. “Law Of Return” on the other side is a Kruder signature take on deepness - solemn chords wrapped around a hypnotic groove give you tears of joy. A masterpiece and one of the most thought-after vinyl's in Macro's entire catalogue.
