in anticipation of the reissue of CLARK here’s Frans De Waard’s 2005 review:

“
The activities of UK born worldtraveller Boris Hauf are numerous: playing with Efzeg, with TV Pow, with Lozenga and even a Berlin based classic rock cover band The Understated Brown, he also finds time to produce his own solo things. Armed with his laptop he sets out to produce a fine bunch of microsounding glitch ambient or whatever you call it, but here on ‘Clark’ he comes up with something that sidesteps that: his own version of techno music. Stripped bare of all unnecessary elements, adding his own sometimes creepy sounds, […] which gives this dance music a weird twist and certainly makes this less useful for your next rave. It’s more like after party music, when you have left the real party behind, and on a late night train going home, still being in the mood for some more techno related music. The train goes past sparsely lit cities with great speed and you can also sit down and listen, while your feet tap away with the rhythm. Certainly weird enough for techno music, but pleasant enough to be throughout entertaining and breaking away from well-covered territories of microsound. Very nice indeed.”

Clark is being reissued on Shameless in February 2017, pre-order here.
