House Of Life - "Verbatschtes Blut" - (4:57) 156 BPM
Review: For part two of their ongoing Gemist series, House is OK has gathered together tracks from a mixture of rising stars, unheralded newcomers and - in the case of long-serving house and techno star Roman Flugel - a top-tier producer. The latter gives the EP the best possible start with "Another Love Dance", a thrillingly glassy-eyed and mood ehancing fusion of acid-fired electronica, deep synth-pop and mid-tempo house, before Oliver Achatz explores similar sonic territory on the more angular but no less dreamy "Pool". TCB's "Continuum" is a deliciously trippy chunk of alien deep house wooziness, while House of Life's "Verbatschtes Blut" is a bizarre, tongue-in-cheek, slo-mo synth-pop tribute to the dark Lord (that's satan to you and me) rich in EBM-era electronics and mutant new wave electronics.

Prima Astrology - (4:31) 62 BPM
Review: Under the now familiar TCB alias, Christian Beisswenger has spent the best part of a decade offering up distinctive mutations of deeo house, techno and tech-house for labels including Live At Robert Johnson, Tasteful Nudes, Die Orakel and House Is OK. "Prima Astrology" sees him tackle the mini-album format for the first time via an outing on ESP Institute that's arguably aimed more towards home listening than any of his previous work. Of course, there are a number of club-ready cuts on show, but like the album's more downtempo offerings they're deep, spacey, cleverly composed and often shot through with references to dub-house and dub techno (see "Wet FX" and "Once Past Twenty" for starters). It's a good blend that makes for suitably drowsy and enjoyable listening, with highlights including the eccentric, off-kilter opener "Spooks", the deep digi-dub of "Help For People" and the blue-tinged early morning warmth of "Prima Astrology".

Review: Live At Robert Johnson's first Lifesaver compilation, released in 2013, offered an essential snapshot of the infamous club-turned-label's expanding roster, delivering tracks from respected heads and relative newcomers alike. This second installment ploughs a similar furrow, on one hand showcasing woozy dancefloor gear from familiar favourites (see Roman Flugel's formidable, sci-fi tinged analogue jam, "Tender Hooligan", and the beatbox electro-meets-spiraling synth-scapes of Lauer's "Language"), and genuinely impressive music from lesser-known names. In the latter category you'll find some genuine highlights, including the deliciously Balearic electronics of Chinsaski ("Futuresex"), and the Uncanny Valley style, semi-organic deep house chug of Benedikt Frey.

Review: People often forget that the widely-praised Robert Johnson club is actually from Offenbach and not Frankurt, a small town situated about 10 miles out of the city centre. Over the last few years, there's been a resurgence of talent emanating from the town, such as DJ Slynsgshot and his Yappin collective and associated artists like the Vincent Feit who opens the clubs thurd instalment of the Lifesaver series with a naughty little house melter called "X04". Across the comp, other RJ casuals appear, such as Massimigliano Pagliara with "Forever What", an aptly tropical house excursion, or Philip Lauer, Fort Romeau and the lesser known Felix Strahd. All in all, this is about the best house/techno compilation we've received all year and, like everything else the club does, it is an excellent addition to their catalogue. 10/10.
