1 2 3
Released: Dec 2000
It's white that contains all the colors, but German dub-techno maestro Pole goes black with 1 2 3, the 2008 reissue of his landmark blue/red/yellow album trilogy. Appropriately, the music is straight grey -- but what a lush mix of pearl and charcoal is revealed by these early '00s low-end workouts, which run skeletal reggae sketches through warm tubes and swollen filters to come up with a vision of bass at its most tectonic. Pole is rightly dubbed a minimalist, but that term obscures the raw sensuality of this pivotal trio of albums.
