Those of you, who are familiair with alternative techno, undoubtedly know who Scanner is. With his alter ego Scanner, Robin Rimbaud was one of the pioneering electronic artists in the 90s. Typical for him was the use of telephone equipment and police scanners, which made his material popular among music lovers with a passion for experiment.

In recent years Rimbaud mainly wrote soundtracks and composed music for ballets. Now he is back with at his side a great lady: Anni Hogan who worked with great names like Marc Almond, Matt Johnson of The The and Simon Fisher Turner of Deux Filles in the early 80s. He worked with Martin Bowes of Attrition, who was also involved in the Scanni recordings. Because yes, if you mix Scanner and Anni Hogan, then you get Scanni as a result.

There are a lot of other artists who participate in this prestigious project: Katie Smith, Jennifer John (who sang with Elton John and George Michael), the jazz musician Thomas Lang, Jarboe of Swans and Wolfgang Flür, who was a member of Kraftwerk.

A super project, so to speak. But instead of overwhelming the listener with a thunderous sound, he is confronted with an intimate, almost mystical atmosphere. There are some pop elements on this album, but the macabre atmosphere (think of David Lynch) gets the upper hand. Sometimes it’s jazzy, sometimes pure pop and then you just do not know which style you would call it. Scanni is a very remarkable record, not of old legends, but of artists who have reinvented themselves.

Wie op de hoogte is van alternatieve techno, weet ongetwijfeld wie Scanner is. Met zijn alter ego was Robin Rimbaud in de jaren 90 één van de meest baanbrekende elektronische artiesten. Typisch voor Scanner was het gebruik van telefoonapparatuur en scannerradio’s waardoor zijn materiaal ook in de smaak viel bij muziekliefhebbers met een passie voor experiment. De laatste jaren houdt Rimbaud zich vooral bezig met het schrijven van soundtracks en het componeren van muziek voor bijv. balletopvoeringen.

Nu is hij er opnieuw met aan zijn zijde een grote dame: Anni Hogan, die in het begin van de jaren 80 samenwerkte met grootheden als Marc Almond, Matt Johnson van The The en Simon Fisher Turner van Deux Filles. De laatste jaren werkte ze vooral samen met Martin Bowes van Attrition,die ook betrokken was bij de opnames van Scanni. Want ja, als je Scanner en Anni Hogan met elkaar mengt, krijg je Scanni als resultaat.

Er zijn nog een heleboel namen die aan dit prestigieuze project hebben meegewerkt: Katie Smith, Jennifer John (die met Elton John en George Michael zong), de jazzmuzikant Thomas Lang, Jarboe van Swans en Wolfgang Flür, die ooit nog bij Kraftwerk zat.

Een superproject, dus. Maar in plaats van de luisteraar te overvallen met een overdonderend geluid, wordt hij eerder meegezogen in een intieme sfeer die zeer mystiek aandoet. Er zijn wel popelementen in deze plaat hoorbaar, maar het is vooral de macabere sfeer (denk aan David Lynch) die de bovenhand haalt. Soms is het jazzy, dan weer pop en dan weet je gewoon niet welke stijl je er voor moet verzinnen. Scanni is een zeer opmerkelijke plaat, niet van artiesten die hun oude geluid nog eens uit de kast halen, maar die zich opnieuw hebben uitgevonden.
