Stasis Germany. It was inspired by his first few trips to the White Isle of Ibiza, and specifically the unlikely set of circumstances that led to him filling in for the legendary Jose Padilla at the Cafe Del Mar.

Online reviews have focused largely on II's atmospheric warmth, and the way in which the Berlin-based trio seems to have refined their sound. Both are valid critiques; certainly, there's a maturity and musical complexity to the album that betters much of their previous works. It's not much of a dancefloor set, but that's entirely the point; this is locked-in headphone listening for the wide-eyed generation. III LP.

Music On Vinyl. The set, which is here reissued on vinyl for the first time since, was a far more forthright, confident and funky affair, building on their left-of-centre trip-hop blueprint by incorporating elements of drum and bass, jazz-funk, IDM and new wave synth-pop, but 21 years on still sounds otherworldly and unique. Highlights are plentiful, from the doom-laden, off-kilter original version of "Sing It Back" decidedly different to the Boris Dlugosch remixthe rubbery jungle-pop of "The Flipside" and the beat-free bliss of "Caught In A Whisper".
Wild Rumpus Berlin. Kapitann Platte Germany. Incomparable gram vinyl gatefold 2xLP. Vinyl Passion. Is It Balearic? Is It Balearic.

Exotic Language 2xLP. Shades Of Sound. It's one that melts new age ambiance with beachy grooves, gentle seaside breezes with blissfully downtempo moods.
Next to the more immersive tracks like "Perfume" feat. Private Agenda are supple and subtle acid house jams that hark back to Ibiza's hedonistic heydays, horizontal cosmic excursions, nods to Italian dream house and ALFOS chuggers that all add up to a very mature and musical album of timeless sounds.
After a few years and a few lineup changes he was eventually left with the crack team of Katja Raine, Fiona Mckenzie, Anna Bertermann and Alexander Rischer and he could begin work on his third album Wandhoff had a specific goal in mind as he pieced together the initial skeletons of 'When The Air Is Bright They Shine', he was listening to the classic LPs of the late 60s and 70s; minutes, 10 tracks, every track perfectly realised and the album holding together without filler.
There were none of those modern devices used to trick people into thinking they have got something a little more worthy than it really is He wanted to re-create this, but not make something knowingly retro, instead to put together his album with the same sort of Sing It Back (Boris DLugosch Musical Mix) - Various - Ibiza Uncovered - The Return (Cassette) bar of quality control, to put together 10 songs that embodied the philosophies of those classic albums without actually mimicking them.

The album opens with 'A Town Called Ivanhoe' and we're already on the right path - the track has the best elements of Jim O'Rourke, Kings of Convenience or Jose Gonzalez, but manage to inject it's own special Bossa charm which carries across the whole album.
Imagine driving along a beach on the West Coast of the USA as the sun is setting and you'll have some idea of the rich moods captured on this ten track disc. When we reach 'Eliza A Day for Every Hour ' it's clear Wandhoff has a deft skill in pop songwriting - this is a track that wouldn't sound out of place on any self-respecting radio show, but what's more it's actually credible too.
