This meeting of minds between party-orientated DJ Krissi B and RnB vocalist is a match made in dancefloor heaven. "I Want U" is a fizzy bang of handbaggy beats, hypey melodies and a touch of bassline bottom end. Lou's infectious vocals are all over the different versions of the song, including the hands-in-the-air original, the dark and fast wobble banger of the EJ Da Farda mix and best of all: Krissi B's own 2-step garage mix.
From the label that released Dopplereffekt's first EP in seven years comes this radically different record. "Kronos" sounds like a particularly racuous take on vintage Underworld; its rhythm hurtles recklessly like an out of control juggernaut, the vocal is as deranged as Karl Hyde, while the hoover bass could be borrowed from an old hardcore record. "Mesonoxian" has echoes of early 90s dance music as well, largely because of the way that a raging sub-bass is combined with a soulful diva vocal. Finally, "Ls6" marks a radical departure: instead of high octane techno it's a deeper, broken beat affair, led by rich chords.
