Theres a storm brewing on Stil vor Talent this summer! After stellar 12 by Edu Imbernon & Triumph and Niko Schwind, were soaking your senses with a wonderfully wide-ranging split-EP courtesy of the Swiss boys Animal Trainer and The Koletzkis groove machine Björn Störig.
On After Monday, Animal Trainer let us know how they feel on a Tuesday: ready for the next party, apparently. While mellow vocal samples hum over dreamy synth pads, the tracks enormous bass-line betrays the duo love for a good party, much to the listeners delight. Gone 4 Ever carries on the sonic theme seamlessly, but adds colourful strings, soft cowbells and an Italo-esque bass-line for some feel-good disco bliss.
Björn Störig works his percussive magic on the flip side. Thus, The Return of the Trompetenfrosch features rolling bongos floating over an airy House arrangement. The real winner is, of course, the trumpet here, which turns the track into a jazzy voodoo feast to get those butts shaking hypnotically. Rounding things off, Soul Survivor manages to be both, infinitely chilled out due to its esoteric use of the flute and piano, and enchantingly up-tempo through Björns impressive command over groove.
Get some shelter, cos these tracks will spare no one.
