★webstar review

Andreas Reihse, Thomas Klein, and Alex Paulick have been creating electronic music in Düsseldorf Germany since 1994. Originally with Stefan Schneider and Detlef Weinrich, and later with a variety of guest musicians, Kreidler have produced and been involved with many musical projects over the years that encompass spoken word, poetry, soundtracks, remixes, and their own studio output.

The music is instrumental and ranges from electronic pop to more abstract works that are often entwined with video and imagery from filmmakers and artists.

The latest album, Spells and Daubs, released in 2022 continues this theme. Ten instrumental tracks are packaged up with distinctive artwork from Heinz Emigholz to produce a media rich aural and visual experience. The rhythm and pace of each track connects and takes you on a musical journey that's both industrial and melodic in nature with repetitive themes and more ambient moments.
