Its been eleven months since the last release on San Francisco's mothership imprint but as we know, all good things are worth waiting for and today the sister label of dirtybird returns, with an exciting debut from German artist, Rico Puestel.
As with a lot of the music signed by label chief Claude VonStroke, "Voeyage" was received as a demo. Picked up, signed and then backed with the B side "Plumb The Depths", Rico's mothership debut was ready to roll.
"Voeyage is very dear to me and very much a homage to my home City of Kiel" says Rico who dissected and rearranged brief snapshots from hours of his own piano improvisations for the track. "Its a kind of musical meditation for me. I was looking to preserve the last strains of summer from the all consuming days of winter. Its a very personal production for me."
"Plumb The Depths" on the flip finds Rico on the ivories again as he plays and rearranges a mind twisting piano melody that works brilliantly in harmony with a piercing synth riff, all powered by its marching bassline and impressive array of percussion.
