The Micronaut is the project of German multi-instrumentalist and producer Stefan Streck. Two years after Head Control, Body Control, he has released a new album titled Olympia (Summer Games). According to the press release, it is an album which continues to draw on his elaborate production style as well as on the values of camaraderie and solidarity of the Olympic Games, despite this year’s postponement of the event. Summer Games’ tracks are named after Olympic sports – pole vault, archery and swimming are just some examples of the 12 modalities chosen by the artist.
In the spirit of games, the music is high-spirited and upbeat, with many tracks being perfectly fitted for the dance floor. Behind the music’s energetic flow are sophisticated arrangements and quasi- scientific constructions which crush stylistic boundaries and give birth to a new collage-based genre of music.
