SIEGMAR FRICKE-neuro beton house(Beton Tapes-germany-c60-1992)

if thee idea ov ethnic sampling over early 90s house music with experimental touches seems unappealing: than you may wish to pass on this one.. personally find elements ov it intriguing; even if this tis not thee best release to grace thee ears from Siegmar Fricke [Bestattungsinstitut, Pharmakustik, Ambulatorio Segreto, Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide, Doppelwirkung, Efficient Refineries, New Tits On The Cock, Nome De Voyage 2]!! kind ov plays out like some sort ov megamix.. enjoy it or don't..
