Climatic's fourth album on 4MPO is named Duane, with a hinttowards the legendary guitarist Duane Allman, as Climatic has chosen blues and rock guitars here as new elements in his music. The Woodstock Festival being time-warped into the year of 2017, this is what comes to mind while listening to tracks like Eya or The Burners. Another surprising moment comes with White Sands, featuring an East European-style violin solo over an opulent electronic chillout backing. The idea for this came up, when Climatic and violinist Francensca Reyter were performing live on stage with a music theatre group, doing a multi-media-show in Cologne last summer.Another important input to this album comes from Angela Puxi on vocals and saxophones, who joined in on four songs. Go Away speaks about the corny pick-up-game, meaning: not-too-witty men having a tough time trying to impress strong and self-confident women. Female power that is musically illustrated by a massive brass section from Angela Puxi over a solid reggae-funk groove. Solo Parole, on the other hand, is a soothing vocal-chillout-song, soaked with beautiful mediterranean atmosphere and romaticism. Where beneath all the sweetness, there stands the disillusionment from romantic love:I hear your words, but the meaning is emptyWhen I See You, a spheric deep-house track with sounds from indian raga music, is about stress and relieve in modern civilazation, staying healthy despite the never-ending big city rush hour. The new album, just like Climatic's former releases, takes a large round through ambient, dub, reggae, deep house, reflecting a wide musical background.Another meaning in the title Duane is a reference to Duane Elgin, author and speaker in the fields of human culture and consciousness. Volker Dorsch a.k.a Climatic chose this artist name around 2002, realizing that the global climatic changes will become the next and biggest challange to human kind. Obviously, Climatic's idea of ambient and house music is far from being just an easy-going lifestyle soundtrack. From early on, he's been exploring the effects that music has on the emotional state of individuals and groups, including those of his own works. While Electronic music has often been misunderstood as technical or superficial, for him, melting down musical ideas of the most different places and times is of course an important statement, whether produced on a computer, or written down on paper for traditional instruments. Climatic's music is hardly politically outspoken, yet his message is quite noticeable between the lines.
