      Mono No Aware
      "Tatemae"

      Mono No Aware are a true veteran HANDS act, brought to the light of public with the first infusion of label artists around 2000, and with a steady history of releases and performances since. Mono No Aware stands for two things mainly: massive crowd-subjugating Rhythm’n’Noise power, and a subject matter relating to aspects of Japanese culture. For this album Leif Künzel has chosen the concept of Tatemae and Honne as a reference point: The term describes the dichotomy between a person’s conduct and publically uttered notions on one hand, and one’s true emotions and aspirations on the other. The first 13 of the 15 tracks on ‘Tatemae’ are all rhythmic, but the outcome varies greatly: Some tracks are slower, shuffling Rhythm Noise, some have an oppressive Power Electronics taste, other tracks kick it Industrial Hardcore style, while some move along below club-compatible tempo, like the build-up-structure intro “Freigaenger” or the moody “MMM”. And yes, some tracks are classic Mono No Aware, a rabble-rousing hyperactive intro followed by rhythmic onslaught. The most archetypal examples of this are “Jadoo” and “Blackbox”, and it’s those two that also get a bonus remix treatment by Wieloryb and Dirty K. The album closes with “Datum des Verfalls” and “Augen auf und sieh!”: beatless, almost Dark Ambient pieces!
