Pole: Steingarten Remixes

img  Tobias

This may not sound like a sensation at first, but it does represent quite a bit of a surprise in the case of Stefan Betke. Pole, after all, has been a highly personal project for Betke, a unique vision away from any easy categorisations. The record company has another valid point to make on the subject: „Remixing Pole is a bit of a challenge. Carefully assembled, piece by piece, his seamless ”Steingarten” (rockery) exhibits no gaps, no ornaments, no superfluous flourishes. And a closer look at the tracks’ underlying structure confirms: any additions would only distract from their delicate balance.“ The crew of remixers does a fine job, however, turning „Steingarten Remixes“ into an item to look forward to.

After the somewhat luke-warm reception of Stefan Betke's third, eponymous album on Mute Records, „Steingarten“ saw Pole's return as a media darling early this year.
