Genres

Digital album included with orders on all formats features a track from the album sessions that has never been released before ’Testing’.

As it is with any seminal music release, you must first kill your darlings. This was the approach Roman Flügel and Jörn Elling Wuttke took when, upon forming their first project Acid Jesus off the back of their love for Chicago House and the early Detroit techno sound, they also started a project in tandem with their club-minded bombast. Taking cues from the DIY ethos of electronic music’s age old mortal enemy — rock music — years before art school kids with guitars took to the dancefloor, as well as the then burgeoning ‘IDM’ movement foreseen by the likes of Aphex Twin and David Morley, Flügel and Wuttke decidedly switched gears to a slow-burning brand of euphoria. And so, The Primitive Painter was born.

Who could’ve guessed how influential they were to become. The depth and breadth of The Primitive Painter was a mind-expanding trip, where suspended chords are granted forward motion by slow jam-style 808s and a willingness to refuse the drop, such as on the angelic ‘Hope’ and the borderline library music of ‘Cathedral’.

If it wasn’t for the lasting legacy of their self-titled debut LP anyone would think The Primitive Painter might’ve disappeared into obscurity. Apollo Records, with thanks, have now reissued this work some 26 years after it first hit vinyl, and it hasn’t aged a day.
