Appetite Fur Disctruction , 6/10
Michael Fakesch: Marion , 5/10
Disconnected (2004), 4/10

Chris DeLuca and Michael Fakesch, known collectively as Funkstorung (previously Musik Aus Strom), hail from Munchen (Germany) and came to prominence with the album of remixes Additional Productions (K7, 1999), where they reinvented other celebrities' hits. Their post-dance style, somewhere between Oval and Autechre, built of intricate beats, dislocated clicks and arcane melodies, permeates Appetite Fur Disctruction (K7, 2000). The duo's atonal techno pieces (including the title-track, Think and Red Shirt White Shoes) are delivered by guest vocalists and seem to hark back to the early ages of rap.

Michael Fakesch's solo Marion (Musik Aus Strom, 2000) is a more restrained work that focuses on the rhythmic aspect

Funkstorung's Viceversa (K7, 2003) and Appendix (2006) were terrible remix albums. Disconnected (K7, 2004) was their friendliest album, both in terms of song structure and in terms of instrumental sound. The duo split in 2006.

Chris de Luca also recorded under the moniker CLP the hip-hop album Supercontinental (Shitkatapult, 2008).

Chris DeLuca e Michael Fakesch, conosciuti col nome di Funkstorung (in precedenza Musik Aus Strom), provengono da Monaco di Baviera (Germania) e giungono all’attenzione con l’album di remix Additional Productions (K7, 1999), dove reinventano hit di altre celebrità. Il loro stile post-dance, a metà tra Oval ed Autechre, costruito su beat intricati, battiti sconnessi e melodie arcane, permea Appetite Fur Disctruction (K7, 2000). I pezzi techno-atonali del duo (la title-track, e Red Shirt White Shoes) vedono ospiti diversi cantanti e sembrano volgere lo sguardo alla primissima stagione del rap.

L’album da solista di Michael Fakesch, (Musik Aus Strom, 2000), è un lavoro più controllato, concentrato maggiormente sull’aspetto ritmico.

(K7, 2003) e (2006), a nome Funkstorung, sono terribili album di remix. (K7, 2004) è il loro album più ammiccante, sia intermini di struttura dei pezzi sia in termini di suono strumentale. Il duo si divide nel 2006.
