Geffi Straf "Music by an algorithm" is a funny way to spell Uwe Schmidt. This is an album as if made from one piece. Still each track has its own flavour without adding too much cheese. No clue what the algorithm-thingy did here. My impression is, it's far from "Forgot to switch off the Palantir, thus granting Sauron access to all your streaming accounts"-fucked up. Works just fine then? Good job, algorithm! For me one of the best albums of 2022!
Favorite track: Nix.

holobiont Exquisitely sculpted barbarity. Sound as visceral materiality. Syncopated sprays of snares and single shots. Teeming with all manner of grit - burbling with incoherent and distorted utterances and electric.

Finn of Tomland That Atom™ bloke sure know how to do some funky snap, crackle and pop music that makes me very happy.
And this time it seems that he has almost let the machines take over by letting an algorithm control parts of the process and that is a clever move when it ends up sounding as nice as this.
So i think that "algorhythm" is a fair description of this wicked release.
Highly recommended.

The continuously edited, autonomous piece of code as which Atom™ defines itself enters the hot state of flow. »Neuer Mensch« (»new human«) is the relentless, visceral expression of metamorphosis. A projection of the metahuman horizon, an exercise in shedding the exoskeleton. Dead tissue is being torn off in radical body movements. Dead ideas are crushed by feet, dancing the dance of brutal elegance. Somatic exorcism via hyper realistic surfaces of binary noise. Physicality. Unseen geometries dressed in the most basic of rhythmic patterns - simple structures of hidden symmetries. The false promise of linear progress as it shatters, hitting the barrier of sound. Familiar vocal fragments speak to us in foreign tongues, languages still to be invented. Indecipherable messages from another species - future faux amis. The seductive spell of artificiality and its inherent promise of tomorrow’s bliss. A soundtrack for all of you hi-tech vagabonds, you godless drifters, deprived of past and present.
