Keinemusik co-founder Rampa rarely makes appearances on other labels. In fact, this Innervisions label debut is only his fifth release away from "home territory" since 2008. The title track sets the tone, with the Berlin-based producer peppering a shuffling, soft-focus tech house groove with ear-pleasing chord progressions and undulating electronic melody lines. Afro-inspired builder "Bimma" is a deeper, woozier and atmospheric affair, with African vocal samples and marimba style flourishes helping enhance the track's sticky and humid mood. Closer "Fluke", meanwhile, is a gently woozy and quietly positive late night treat - all rising and falling electronic melodies, crunchy drum fills and locked-in kick-drum hits.
Rampa's sultry vocal number "Everything" was originally released on Keinemusic earlier this year and instantly became a summer standard. Laced with just the right amount of bass and soul, it's an instantly timeless piece of house music and has been renewed with a clutch of fresh remixes. Mark Fanciulli adds a solid 4/4 stomp and pulsating elastic bassline, Argy pitchshifts the vocal and adds some classic synths and 808s and Rampa adds his own new tribal, percussion-heavy take. Defected's ability to pick up on underground tracks and bring them to a wider audience is the closest thing house music has to a Midas touch.
