Thomas Fehlmann, one of the prime movers on the German electronic music scene, has been around since the '80s, though his career really took off in the late '90s. He has released two full-length albums — 2002's Visions of Blah and 2007's Honigpumpe — for the Kompakt label, and has appeared on several volumes of its Total compilations, making tracks that combine the clean melodic lines and crisply metronomic beats that are the label's stock-in-trade with a warm, dubby bass presence. He's appearing alongside Gudrun Gut, an early member of Einstürzende Neubauten, with whom he hosts the German radio show Ocean Club. Gut recently released her first solo album, I Put a Record On, with production and mixing by Fehlmann.
