It can be bright and friendly even down in the depths of hypnotism, as proven once again by Marcus Sur. The melodic catchiness of his productions vibrates somewhere between Deep House and Dub Techno, taking the best of both worlds to yet another level. There is a very warm and organic feeling to this music that dominates the prevailing mood of all the tracks. The minimal but heady tune of The World In Small Doses rings and throbs from a multitude of acoustic dimensions. The Masquerade is full of subliminal drama and perfidious complexity. Whereas The Lessons are dominated by the dreamy voice of singer Ann Jasmund that expands over a heaving patchwork of warm harmony. Some of the weightless piano and synthesizer chords from Magnetic Ribbons got stuck between the percussive rhythms of Mollono.Bass and are taken away to his wondrous universe of sound. The original version with its playful bass line is included as a bonus on the digital version. Easily digestible yet very powerful and stimulating - just like good music for the summer should be!
