Germany's Wolfgang Hagedron embellishes his debut album of subtle microhouse with his own unique nuances, which give Homegrown an interior life similar to the galactic funkiness conjured by artists like Detroit's Jeff Mills and Model 500. Homegrown lays analog tones over house beats on tracks like "Pause," where the minimal groove is underpinned by sleazy reverbed keyboards. "Oblidow" bookmarks this warm tech-soul affair with crunchy, pulsing house rhythms so dense they form elastic supports for a funky alert network that sends its warnings by synthesizer.
