the ranks is young Matthias Meyer. A strong member of the Liebe*Detail family and a regular on the German underground scene, his first two releases with the label explored extravagant and dramatic realms to great success.
Now, following his recent hit 'Tout Va Bien,' highly praised across the board for its warming, building sentiments, Matthias joins forces in the studio with compadre Patlac, another
promising new producer also from his home town of Lüneburg.
Free flowing and full of endless atmosphere, 'Skipper' begins with warmth and rolling atmosphere, tracking over itself with texture and colour. A complex undergrowth of static
hisses and rich organic percussion build towards long and teasing breaks in the bass energy.
The pair's use of deep house stabs and long, drifting ethnic string phrases lifts the track high into the rafters, creating the perfect late night trip into another place... Fluid and full of
dynamics, musicality and love, 'Skipper' is already proving its worth.
B1: salt city - nick curly remix
Mannheim's Cecille Record's boss Nick Curly has passionately raised the bar for the label's deep-house-come-minimal sound, and now proves his remixing skills here with solid
functionality. Chunky, room filling drums roll over and over whilst the key stabs from Salt City are satisfyingly thrown to the floor. Its a another pushing percussive workout that concentrates on the beats and leaves the Dj plenty of room to inject their own style into the sound.
B2: salt city
Taking things down a less intense, but by no mean less addictive route, the pair have have created a tight percussive workout that takes its inspiration from deep house but develops its sound palette from fresher, more techy climes. Phasing chord stabs rise amongst looping latin
inspired drums and insistent bass surges. Its a functional, energetic tool-track that complements the epic nature of the A-Side.
