Jan delay has recorded a new album. It is his fourth overall. Again, he has changed the genre: reggae and funk are dead, is now skirt tuned. So the simple reading goes. Who the musicians and people January Phillip Eißfeldt has followed over the past 20 years, but know that the simple reading is not his thing.
Jan delay was never just either way. He has thrown with disco balls on Babylon and punched against the machine. He has worn evening suit and late Air Max he has there never explained, but simply combines the supposed contradictions -. As a matter of course that they have eventually disappeared into thin air.
Almost eight years ago now that Jan delay first turned on the ignition of his sparkling Mercedes-Dance. He had no goal then, probably not even a clue where it could lead this exit. But he drove off. For Soul Train. At two times platinum. For an epochal victory lap on the racetrack Hamburg. At "Wetten, dass ...?", The Euro Vision Song Contest to various ECHO, comets and crowns and pretty much all the other accolades that keeps the entertainment being so willing in this country. He who once did not want to sing his songs, was, almost unnoticed, without anyone ever thought about the most important pop voice of his generation.
If he now leather and studs attaches itself to the tailored suit to blow the whole damn bunch with a big load of fire in the ass, so that's only at first glance a surprise. Rather, it is the only logical consequence. Because basically everything is as always: Jan delay heard his favorite records thrown the best moments in the Flash Wolf, manically gefuchst in the matter - and then easy-easy shaken a worldwide hit after another off the cuff.
"Hammer Michel " is a flawless rock album. In the twelve tracks Rage and Ramones, Lenny and Lemmy, Nina and Udo, punk rock and powerpop stuck, the sound of the early Arctic Monkeys and the spirit of the Hamburg School. The amplifier sizzle, whir the strings, the drums kick, and if sparks fly somewhere, then they do not come from a sparkler, but the fact that drip has pushed in the mix again a few sliders up.
Above all, "Hammer Michel " a flawless Jan-Delay album. As are his voice and over the years perfected interaction with the Disko No. 1, which hold the plate and they are clearly in the continuum of "Mercedes-Dance" and "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Soul" situate. There is the obsession and the urge to make a new world as its own, without forgetting the pioneers. And there is the attitude that so seamlessly "Searching for the Jan Soul Rebels" followed, as if not since 13 years, but at most a few weeks passed: times aggressive and corrosive, sometimes all embracing and full of love.
"Whenever I'm pissed from Popstartum and the annoying things that it brings with it, I remember it, where I come from. If all the time only the glam bird with the big band in the back to be that annoying sometime. I have all enjoyed doing insane I love that large halls, a good show, but at some point I thought anyway.... I want to cry all of you face And if you then to dancing, is' cool! "
Thus, the coordinates of the album are marked out accurately. "Hammer Michel " Rock is the Raven, Jung music for girls, punk fOr the stadiums. It is carried by small tips and a survival Great "Big Tit Sound" (© Delay, J., 2013), of a latent refusal and of those magical moments that merge oomph and truth in a miraculous fashion. On the one side are the typical Jan-Delay-moments: For example when he regrets "Fat Children" for consumption of vegetables holding, dream women dance problem Hoeness insidious with affection about casting, tattooed FDP'lern extends a hand with ten middle fingers and otherwise is a fairly official Vollfick.
On the other hand, is a previously unknown ability as a copywriter, dissolve all tribulations of the world with a single line in pleasure. "The lights go out, the dreams of" he sings on the first Single "St. Pauli", the only superficially a Hamburg-anthem and in their hearts a love letter to life and the power of night. In another verse it is said: "You come to Extinguish memories - the most beautiful but be born here." And so everything is really said, what is there to say at this moment.
The soundtrack to all the feeds from various eras and varieties of guitar spectrum. If you with Jan delay About Mucke speaks, can happen that the speech within three minutes on Slime, Deep Purple, The Golden Lemons, Wolfmother, System Of A Down, Mando Diao, Blumfeld, Bodycount, Jet, Jimi Hendrix, Queens Of The Stone Age, the "Judgement Night" soundtrack and REO Speedwagon comes. Just sounds "Hammer Michel ".
Jan delay derives no rock scene; He is accountable to no one and no school arrested except that of celebration, Stylens, making. this gives him the freedom to completely open mind to use all of those set pieces that have him excited and influenced over the years - and it, something completely to create together with his co-producer Kaspar "drip" Wiens new and special.
A bred "Scorpions ballad" Over the confusing fading old enemy images ( "fascists hear Tupac, bulls Bob Marley") has just as much at home here as a gerapptes intro, a metal-moment or a country-rock song about the journey in the country where "the fortune cookies grow" and "bloom laugh lines". It can sometimes be ACAB Rocky and times Angus Jan, times allow inner Noel hang out and even the incarnation of the young Udo. And he can always remain faithful.
"Hammer Michel " reconciled Wacken with Woodstock and a whole generation with the guitar. but maybe it's just the coolest Jan-Delay album the universe. No Reinhold Beckmann. He's back, man!
