Falko Brocksieper is considered to be one of the most recognisable artists in the Berlin music scene. Besides producing countless masterpieces Falko has supported innovative and fresh talents with his own labels Sub-Static and Karloff Rekordings. October saw the release of ‘Shortcake Strategy’, which is the third album from Falko, 5 years after his last.
Shortcake is a simple recipe. It doesn’t take a lot of planning or much thought or attention when preparing it, and in the end, it will be sweet, and perfectly satisfying. Falko might say the same about his approach to the creation of “Shortcake Strategy”, yet the end product sees his most dynamic and emotional productions to date, leaving us with the feeling that this comes from a strategy that requires far more thought, and is far more complicated than that of a sugary dessert. In “Shortcake Strategy”, fairytale-like melodies are backed with thought provoking harmonies that pave the way for an explicitly visual experience. The German producer has excelled himself!
