- Words: Praxis
- Label: Moon Harbour
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
As a resident DJ at Germany’s Distillery since 1997, this deep-house superstar has been busy contributing classics to the Dessous, FM Musik, and Freude Am Tanzen labels. This album arrives after its maker traveled the world, discovering what makes crowds tick. Using dreamy pads and filtered key sweeps, the tracks here offer a soothing approach to dance, full of hazy tones and atmospheric quirks. From the powerful cowbell-laden peak groove of “Keep On,” to the electro-reminiscent bass work on “Bulldozer,” the fully mixed album delivers a rollercoaster trip through the thrills of minimal tech-house.
