Blood for album: Christopher Rau “Two”

The album that perfectly fits the season and my present state of mind. The 28year old producer from Hamburg knows how to turn a simple beat, a reduced baseline and only a few sound elements into heaven.  The Cover by Stefan Marx, who is responsible for Smallwille graphic style, becomes even more colourful and so does the music. Well known for his minimalistic choice of ingredients Christoper Rau somehow frees himself of any straight format. And this is exactly what i am missed in my recent big room appearances. Songs full of sweetness, a glimpse of soul here, a detroit electro influence there, broken beats, breaks that are no breaks, sexyness and funk and fun. Personally the best track “Swag Lude” is flashing back Landomat‘s Arj Snoek, who’s album “Fruit Of The Loop” (1997) with timeless track “I can people know” has a respectable place in my record collection. Hamburg sound at its best!
