Format: limited 12” vinyl (incl. download-code) + digital
Distribution: Broken Silence / wordandsound / finetunes.net
A handful of cables, laptops and a few dusty machines are all it takes to make music. On Stiff Little Spinners Vol. 8 this is proven once again with seven exclusive tracks by Thomas Atzmann, Rampue, Kalipo, Krink, Paradise Hippies, Gimmix and Monopohl. The eighth edition of the Stiff Little Spinners compilation is ready for the next demolition party with a mix of modern deep house, slow jams & dreamy techno future classics.
01 Thomas Atzmann – Skagerrak
After a longer release break, Thomas Atzmann delivers the first sure shot of this record. Skaggerrak convinces from the beginning with spheric ambience and tom-tom grooves, dissolving in a wash of big synth emotions.
02 Rampue – Der König und der Vogel
King Rampue dishes out an A+ Slow Jam. Minimalistic in the beginning, this track leads you directly via screwed vocals to a cosmic breakdown of intoxicating emotions. All of it with a beautifully relaxed bpm.
03 Kalipo – Gernkraftwerk
The manifold producer is on the ticket as per ususal – this time with a detroit-y neo trance attack. With the appropriate volume this tune can lead to loss of gravity.
04 Krink – Dazed
This track is tuning feedback into filters and synth stabs in your face as if there was no tomorrow. Some tunes will always instill hope that’s it’s possible to dance forever and never go home.
05 Paradise Hippies – Prosecco Mate
The last hippies of Hamburg bring proof that two rad dudes together make an extremely rad pair. Known in every dive bar around town, Joney and Digital Norman decided to become a super group to blow everyone’s minds away with their very own R’n’B disco cut.
06 Gimmix – Karlie
Rounding the whole thing off is Gimmix with a modern deep house classic. All the right ingredients from arpeggio synth via deep chords to trippy vocal fragments. What more could you want.
07 Monopohl – Patellaluxation
Bremen-based Monopohl is the rookie on this record. After a couple of EPs he docked on to the mother ship Audiolith to give this dreamy radiator to the world. Synth lines epicly build up to an absolute peak time monster, ready to pick up everyone who wants to fly at a higher game.
