Rivers shows that German house is evolving into something new and exciting. On "High", Ritter and Scahwarzwalder work slow and mournful vocals over a stripped back, minimal house groove, while a loose guitar strums away in the background. It's an enticing, albeit kooky affair. The same can be said about "Flowers Are Green". On this occasion, the intriguingly named mO is on vocals, with mysterious inflections puncturing the subtle, rolling groove and fretless guitar chimes. The last track, "Elevator Music", sees Schwarzwalder work with David Dorad and Ritter relegated to a side role, but it doesn't diminish the quality. A baked-sounding vocalist claims that 'this ain't elevator music' and the pared back, acid-peppered rhythm that has echoes of trippy releases from Derrick Carter's Classic label makes it hard to disagree.
