Review Text 2007 release from this German Techno duo, their fifth studio release. Deinetwegen sounds like a 21st century post Techno version of the Blues. Since their previous release, both members started families and settled into adulthood and are ready to show the world what a German post-Techno band can do. The duo are ready to play the Blues, with all their dust, moody narratives, and other complicated arrangements, much in the spirit of John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters - clear, simple, reduced, honest. This is their interpretation of German 21st century Blues. No sampling of old records, but certainly studying the old material helped them to write lyrics about things observed in the multimedia offices of Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. The title track is the key song, with Laub-trademark vocals and pop references that refuse to function as pop. The song is not only a love song to the people in their lives, it is also a pure devotional hymn to the Blues. AGF Produktion. 2007.
