Heartthrob "Slow Dance"

Techno has long been saddled with labels like "faceless," "soul-less," and "abstract," all of which apply to many artists and releases in the genre. Not so with Jesse Siminski, who, under his Heartthrob guise, has crated a debut album that breathes emotion back into the 4/4 time signature. Called a "roller coaster ride" in a recent press release, Siminski's music has a definite up-and-down feeling to it that creates alternates between lighter moments and those where the bass is so brooding and heavy it leaves one feeling as though the Apocalypse is truly upon us. "Slow Dance" is making its way around the European dance circuit, most notably in the DJ sets of Minus boss Richie Hawtin. Photo by Markus Jans.

An excellently deep and trancetastic mix of hypnotic techno-style drums and killer bass lines. The progression of the song is what's really interesting - absolutely indescribable. A download not to be missed.
