That Romantic Scene (feat Onosizo) - (8:36) 121 BPM
Review: Since we last heard from him in 2017, Constantijn Lange has been beavering away in the studio. 18 months on, we finally get to hear the results: an expansive debut album that should win the producer plenty of plaudits. Reminiscent of some glassy-eyed, synthesizer-heavy sets on Balearic-minded imprints such as Permanent Vacation, "Elysian Fields" sees him serve up a range of colourful, melody-driven cuts that variously touch on a wide variety of styles (ambient, nu-disco, deep house, cosmic disco, Balearic beats and, in the case of standout "Aerolite", acid-flecked Italian dream house). Lange's grasp of mood and melody ensures that all ten tracks not only hit the mark, but come together beautifully on a set that fits both sofa-bound home listening and DJ-friendly club spins.
Review: Four years on from his last appearance on the label, Constantijn Lange returns to the warm bosom of Laut Und Luise. Musically, it's a curiously inventive EP, featuring tracks that combine elements of various styles in interesting new ways. Check, for example, opener "Power", where Onosizo's spoken word vocal weaves in and out of lilting piano motifs, tumbling synth solos, drowsy deep house chords and slick tech-house beats. Lange's musical magpie approach is confirmed by the accompanying Dub of "Power", which boasts even more intricate touches and jammed-out solos. "Mapleesed Rhinos", meanwhile, sits somewhere between the Afro-influenced deep house/tech-house fusion of Osunlade, the spacey futurism of Motor City techno and the eyes-closed bliss of bespoke Balearica.
