raised dissident hiding in the Belgian capital. He delivers a solid five tracker that will as
likely move feet on a peaktime dancefloor as nourish ears during early morning afterhour
home listens. All tracks were written and produced at Studio Bontinck in the last two years
using the Akai MPC2000 XL, Tascam 464, Roland Juno-106, Roland JX-8P, Kawai K1,
Roland TR-626, Roland TR-707. On the deep side, dreamy opener Mythic Dance's power
lies in the pairing of a well crafted, hypnotic machine groove with sweet, spirited melodies.
Next up, the percussion led Levitate gently manoeuvres into the room, tip-toes through
the dance floor and quietly exits, but not before the humming bassline has crawled into
your head and hips. The deeper side kicks off with Footsteps. Reminiscent of Vincent
Floyd's early works, its elegant bass, soft spoken choir and dreamy strings play hide and
seek with a rolling acid line, ultimately making way for it to step into the limelight. Unlike its
title suggests, Try To Impress steadily bounces along, impressing by underachieving. A
bold and physical drum track, it jacks and grooves like a potent Herbert workout. Rhythm
Mind bids us farewell with Hibernation, a deep rhythmic electro cut from outer space. Mastered by Duplates & Mastering (Berlin).
