This tune on Jimmy Edgar and Travis Stewart's Ultramajic label has been making its way into plenty of DJ sets as of late, and for good reason too. It's got everything you could possibly want from a dance track: catchy hooks, techno sensibility, electronic oddities and a wholly seductive, bass-driven groove. Of course, our man Jimmy Edgar provides the finest retouch one could possibly ask for, bringing forth his inimitable and sexy flair to the equation. Top notch.
Machinedrum's Aden alias has so far stayed strictly within the lurid realms of the Ultramajic label he operates alongside Jimmy Edgar, with this latest record representing one of the fullest explorations of this new sideline sound to date. "Tanz 1 - Lieb" swells into life with an unresolved tension, redolent with the misty-eyed romanticism of proggy electro as it grows to a false climax like a perfect intro track should. "Tanz 2 - Grau" is instantly more stark in its floor-wrecking intent, dropping a bass-loaded 4/4 thump and jagged percussion that should delight all crossover clubbers - and "Tanz 3 - Hass" is no less unabashed in its feisty party intentions. "Tanz 4 - Hell" lets in a little of that chopped up soul that bleeds out of the Machinedrum productions, albeit stitched to a peak-time tech belter for the biggest dances.
