Review: Berlin's David Pher has appeared previously on Rebellion, Material and Deeperfect but now serves up some surefire dancefloor artillery for Audiojack's always exciting Gruuv imprint. "The Observer" is funky, stripped and rolling minimal/tech house that will appeal to fans of Jamie Jones or recent Apollonia releases. "Maravillosa" injects some latin flair into it plus getting a bit more uptempo with its tightly programmed rhythm. It also gets a tough and gutsy remix by Kevin Over (VIVa/Truesoul) which will come in handy when you're playing the peak time opposed to the afterhour.
Review: Berlin producer David Pher is originally from near Frankfurt but now calls Berlin home. The guy has released previously for Gruuv, Rebellion and Material and with "Over" he throws down more bumping, slinky and downright sexy tech house. Italian legend Leon also lends a study hand in the remix, delivering a tough and powerful rendition which will work on any of the most discerning dancefloors on the White Isle this summer.
Review: Released on Audiojack's label, Berlin-based David Otterbein's latest release as David Pher is a no-nonsense, heads-down affair. "Normcore" is a tracky number, its cut up vocal sample intoning 'bass is high' over a jacking rhythm. "The Wanted" is also an exercise in matching subtlety and force, as doubled up claps and deft vocal samples combine for an insistent workout. Pher adopts a similar approach on "Footsteps", where a tripped out vocal comes in over micro-beats. With a trippy, slightly detuned version of "Normcore" from Philip Bader completing the remix, this is an essential release for those who like modern, stripped back house.
