Soulphiction State of Euphoria
- Words: Velanche
- Label: Sonar Kollektiv
Michel Baumann, a veteran producer with a variety of aliases and labels under his belt, traverses genres but remains rooted in future soul. As Soulphiction, his State of Euphoria oozes with compelling beats and funktastic melodies, with more than a hint of jazz thrown in. "Make It Slow" is a mood-enhanced boiler that starts with disjointed organ action and grows darker and more gripping by the minute. How much further can the merging of organic soul and electronic beats go? Who knows, but it's nice that Soulphiction skillfully blends them into one fresh collection.
