First in rank is Oliver Koletzki, firing up proceedings with The Heartless, an energy packed piece rimmed with pulsating synths. The resolute bassline sets a dark ambient, while its low pitched vocals give the cut a raw techno dungeon feel. Electro veteran Asem Shama signs the second track, a relentless dance-inducing groove that kicks in from the first beat. Constructing a subtle build up, held up by clusters of glitchy motives, Magics Gonna Happen descends into a lingering, abrupt finale. Babylon Angels starts off deceivingly atmospheric, with a laid back approach and neutral vocals, only to dive immediately into a percussive dance frenzy. Aptly timed claves and clangs intertwine with the vocal sample, swaying the focus off the bassline at times and making way for a powerful break.
As the name suggests, Space of choice by newcomer Dabu Davout leads us into a cavernous land of ample sounds, reverbs and echoed vocals. The twisted melody morphs into a percussion driven groove at first, only to switch into a highly infectious synth-laden rave sequence leading up to a grandiose, hands-in-the-sky peak point.
Ferdinand Dreyssigs stripped down Amnesie triggers off slowly but surely, only to amount to a thumping powerhouse banger. Warped leads and contorted stabs add to the spiralling groove, adding an uplifting dimension to its preceding layers.
