Pflichtkauf and Maschinenfest regular Marcus a.k.a. Dazzling Malicious delivers his 5th album in ten years - and returns to the simple and effective approach of the debut: a dozen tracks around the the five-minute-mark, all driven by burly midtempo beats, a rigid structure like the bridge’s stopes on the grey cover. The 59 minutes of this album are a perfect example of how a straight rhythmic and ongoing composition can yet grasp the listener’s attention and work on two levels: the aggression never takes the upper hand, so comfortable home listening is never endangered, yet the strength of beats recommends 'Therapie' for DJ use, whatever mood fits best. In the end, what convices you is the atmosphere Dazzling Malicious manages to create, with the sparing use of samples, effective melody lines and a unique, gritty production, sounding as if there was some patina on the music. If you engage in therapie, you might even find some remedy for yourself! In black digipak with shiny black tray and silver print.
