This Berlin tech house hero delivered the brilliant Left Handed album last year on his Arms & Legs imprint which he runs with Nils Ohrmann. It now gets remixed and what a tremendous roll call there is on this one, where do we start? Maybe with the undisputed legends that he tapped first, such as Chicago's Paul Johnson who gives "Bones" that distinct kind of boompty bounce that only a Windy City DJ can. Speaking of which, Chi-town legend Robert Armani is back on the scene it seems and gives "Punch' a jacking hard house remix that calls to mind the sound of classic imprints like Relief Records or Dance Mania. Toronto deep house legend Nick Holder also makes a comeback with his remix of "No One Can Change Me" which is exactly the kind of bittersweet and emotive deepness you always remembered him for. Big shouts to UK legends 808 State and Crazy P who deliver some great renditions too.
Frontroom fave Steinberg gets busy on his own label with this soul-sampling groover. Rolling with a perfect spring breeze, it's a perfectly timed release that screams sunsets on a certain White Isle. Remix-wise Sascha Braemer and Dan Caster add much more of a progressive sparkly to proceedings, conjuring up the spirits of old Sasha and Digweed Renaissance mixes. Steinberg finishes the release with the lavish string-soaked "True Romance" which sounds like Joey Negro getting busy with Bob James. Again; perfectly timed for this time of year.
