Without exaggeration we can say: There were (and are) two summer-hits on KOMPAKT, on whose everybody can agree. On one hand, JUSTUS KÖHNCKE with his terrific TIMECODE (KOMPAKT 95) and REX THE DOG - PROTOTYPE (KOMPAKT 92). Both tracks have one thing in common. An almost hymnish, pomopous superstructure of melody, that, even though coloured with the trendy eighties touch and freaky souped-up, is totally retro-free and incomparable. REX THE DOG is attending with his overdue follow-up 12inch single, and of course seamlessly ties up to the antecessor. While the titletrack - FREQUENCY - charged with a good pinch of Acid - enhances the Prototype-formula, the B-side delights with elegant vocal-lines carried by lustrous harmony bows. I LOOK INTO MIDAIR - trickles like a prickling laburnum, through the clouds on the dancefloor. That makes us look up happily.
