FLASH is the label that represents Florian Meindl's taste in electronic music and will establish musical visions and ideas, not necessarily a specific sound. The label features the circle of producers affiliated to, and around him. The compilation Circle 2011 follows the success of 2010 edition and consists of 2 parts with exclusive unmixed tracksl, is clearly focussed on the dancefloor between the genres House and Techno. Established acts like Thomas Schumacher, Christian Smith, Martin Eyerer, Daso, Juergen Kirsch, Animal Trainer, Kellerkind are involved as well as upcoming producers like Martin Patino, Daniel Kampf, Marco Dassi, Spada and more.
Florian and Christan Smith welcome us with 'Desire' - a driving, syncopated track that gurgles with a cracking Detroit bassline. Juergen Kirsch follows on with 'Wonder Why', adopting a skating groove and probing vocal loop that properly envelopes the listener. Then getting seductive with some deep, whispered vocal play and deft tom work is FLASH's very own Martin Patino with his fantastic and aptly titled 'Subtle', while other label fellow Daso puts his usual eccentricity to one side momentarily and dishes up classic deep house vibes on the penultimate 'Roll Again'. The label honcho himself wraps up the sampler, dropping a lively, electro-pad driven house groove with a little help from the masterful Ricardo Philips on the elegant 'Rebirth'.
