The producers making the most interesting electronic dance music are usually the ones who come at it from an unusual angle. This is certainly true of Mr Raoul K. Hailing from the Ivory Coast, he moved to Germany in the early 90s and since then has slowly but steadily honed his art. "Teachers" starts with a hypnotic drum intro before welcoming a hypnotic series of chants and warm, dreamlike chords. It's understated, organic and a million times more authentic than the mnml producers who use obvious drum samples. This guy is the real deal - no wonder Henrik Schwarz and Jerome Sydenham support his work.
