PRE ORDER (VINYL): BANDCAMP
This is a primacy of truly avant garde electronic sounds. Served up by Housemeister, an artist, dj and producer that grewed up on the streets of Berlin. As a full-analog studio crack he produced 50 vinyls & 7 albums on BNR, BPC, DU, Monkeytown, Accidental & his own AYCB.
Now, Housemeister present his second album in 2020, its a 7-track piece that has been titled ‘3NDL3SS SVMM3R‘, and will come out in Vinyl and digital. As a very nice initiative, everyone who orders this vinyl on his Bandcamp will automatically plant a tree with https://www.thanku.social/en. How nice is that? PRE ORDER (VINYL): BANDCAMP
‘3NDL3SS SVMM3R’ finds the German producer steering away from the dark, muscular techno thrust that innervated his previous iterations to drop anchor into further euphoric rave & wave horizons. Trading the iron glove for more malleable textures and hair-raising buildups, this new seven-tracker reintroduces the old Housemeister back to his audience, as he returns to a more kindly melodic, feels-conducting approach not unlike that of his earlier records.
Mixing a fine meshwork of cottony synthlines, skittish drum patterns and the beautiful voice of no one else than Miss Kittin the opening hit ‘DAYDREAMERS’ will have you zoning out to limbos of gently-mannered breaksy spook right away. Revving up the engines to a galloping prog swing, deep-diving Bodzin-ian roller ’SUNDANCERS’ cranks up the pressure with optimal impact. As a loud 909 kick and passive-aggressive drums press on zealously, washed out synth arpeggios unfold in corollas of pearly bubbles, wrapping around the racing bass to kick euphoria levels up a notch. Way more choppy a ride, ‘ODYSSEY’ could well fit in a joyous 8-bit video game narrative with its Donkey Kong-esque percussions and mist-shrouded island-like atmosphere. Just dodge the boss’s barrels on the way up.
As its title suggests, ’Trip To Heaven’ grants you a one-way ride into celestial spheres. Flowing out of gushing cataracts of steroid-boosted arpeggios, Housemeister engineers a fiery mix of rattling percs and hi-octane drum shuffle, sure to turn any dancefloor upside down without further ado. Driven by an eerie melody, ‘3NDL3SS SVMM3R’ rapidly evolves into a gargling acid dasher, tailored to make maximum impact when things finally get rougher.
No Housemeister Release would be complete without a breaksy treat and ’FEEL LIKE’ is here to provide just that. Alternating sequences of spacious cosmic hedonism with knee-buckling moves and a pinch of French Touch-y robotics, the track puts on an evocatively lush note, which will undoubtedly please both time-travellers and cross-dimensional ravers altogether. Interlarded with a bleepy electroid groove and coarse, old-school drum programming, ’SEE YOU’ tops off the package on a Blade Runner-ish kosmische finale, that’ll have you whisper words from the C-Beams speech as you show off your deadly footwork on top of a crumbling dystopian building and reminisce assaulting ships off the shoulder of Orion quite naturally.
AYCB will release ‘3NDL3SS SVMM3R’ on September 21st, 2020.
