  • Summary: Experimental electronica artist Stefan Betke returns with his first full-length in four years.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. An ambient record that doesn't bore or get bogged down in its insistence on fading into the background.
  2. Steingarten is a nearly perfect album.
  3. Betke hasn’t merely licked his wounds and retreated into familiar territory, but fused some lessons learned from his own back catalog to create a shiny new beast, at once identifiable as his work and yet something tangibly different.
  4. For what it is, it’s just about perfect.
  5. 80
    Steingarten combines clipped, Kompakt-style 4/4 funk with a massy dub sensibility reminiscent of Adrian Sherwood's Tackhead productions. [Apr 2007, p.114]
  6. Pole’s technique still relies heavily on the minimal, but Steingarten is garnished with a sonic density lacking on his first three full-lengths.
  7. Steingarten is a unique take on ambient/glitch inspired music however it’s lack of musical progression brings it down.
