Review: A master in the art of progressive, melodic techno, Einmusik unveils the first release for his label in 2020, Ignition. With pulsating synths and shadowy basslines grounding b-side alternative "Dread", starry organs and heavy key-play land in an arrangement that sounds like a redefined, techno-fied Jean-Michel Jarre. Hinged on a twinkling arpeggio, the title-track channels a German psyche rock sound that after dropping, sprawls into action with trance-like grace of uplifting energy, melancholia and the fall of tumbling synthesizer motifs.
Review: Eisheimer is the result of a great meeting of minds: on one hand, there's Einmusik aka Samuel Kindermann and on the other, Seth Schwarz, the classically trained violinist, who has blown audiences away at festivals like Burning Man and Amsterdam Dance Event with his mixture of live string playing and electronic dance music. On the title track, this fusion is articulated in the form of a moody, purring bass and a psychedelic, electronic strings, and "Awakening" is an even more impressive affair. Over a pulsating groove, the pair conjure up tranced out melodies and the kind of mesmerising violin solos that make Schwarz such a unique talent.
