Later this week, Johannes Paluka will release his sophomore album as Iron Curtis.
Under the Iron Curtis moniker, Paluka has released a set of high-quality outings on labels such as Uncanny Valley, Morris / Audio, Mule Electronic, Hudd Traxx, and Midnight Shift Recordings, while also releasing as Achterbahn D'Amour alongside Jool (a.k.a. Edit Piafra), Moon with Johannes Albert, and SMPL with Liam Schewski (a.k.a. Leaves). Since launching the Iron Curtis moniker in 2009, he has pushed a melodically rich deep house sound full of chunky low-slung grooves and ethereal atmospheres, and his debut album is his most accomplished and complete statement yet, featuring 12 warm, dream-like cuts. From the opening cut's alien-like sound design to the mesmerizing grooves of "Werc Werc Werc" and the muted rhythms and eerie atmospheres of closing cut, "Mt. Gordon," Upstream Colour is a work of beauty that is full of emotional depth and introspective dancefloor gems.
