Jo Zimmermann’s Schlammpeitziger project has been a unique fixture on Cologne’s electronic scene since the early ’90s.

[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]Zimmermann’s simple, unassuming music is constructed almost entirely using the factory presets of his trusty Casio CZ-230S keyboard, with spare use of samples and a drum machine added for seasoning.

Always present on his records are Zimmermann’s wry sense of humor and fondness for wordplay. The word “schlammpeitziger” is a slight modification of the German name for a species of mud-dwelling fish, and many of Schlammpeitziger’s lengthy titles use similar linguistic trickery.

With his unashamedly retro sound sources and flair for naïve melody, Schlammpeitziger incorporates the textures of early German electronic pioneers like Kraftwerk and Cluster into a distinctly lo-fi, indie pop context.

Although the sounds are almost electronic in nature, they create a warmth due to their analog origin and a “handmade” production process. The secret hit is “Gorschio’s Glimmergoo” which reminds one easily on czech children movies thanks to the use of library music and oldschool synthesizer sounds.
