Machst Du Jetzt Musik? - (6:25) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Play, Stop, Pause - (5:54) 121 BPM
Review: For its sixteenth installment, True Romance is proud to welcome the very talented Janis into its ranks. The busy Frankfurt based producer concocted an irresistible two tracker of oddball grooves here. "Machst Du Jetzt Musik?" is smooth and summery deep house that takes it cues from the dusty MPC house jams of Berlin's Money $ex crew, while second offering "Play, Stop, Pause" is a bit more uptempo with its jazzy and slightly techno-ish elements giving the track an interesting edge.

Review: Throughout his career to date, Jozef K has been a serial collaborator, releasing a string of well-received EPs in cahoots with regular studio buddy Winter Son. It's notable then, that this first outing for Tensnake's True Romance label sees him on a solo mission. It's a rather fine EP, all told, with opener "Sunshine Music (featuring Lauraell)" brilliantly wrapping swirling, filtered instrumentation and drowsy vocal samples around a tough but atmospheric rhythm track laden in well-placed delay and reverb effects. Elsewhere, "Within My Soul" sees the producer brilliantly build energy via fizzing, effects-laden string stabs and jacking drum fills, "Paris NYC" is a fluttering deep house/French touch fusion and "You Should Have Said Goodbye" is a warm and hypnotic trip into classic U.S deep house territory.

Fase2 - (6:32) 60 BPM
   
Break Away - (7:46) 62 BPM
Review: Straight-laced drums straight outta Rome thanks to Italian producer Kocleo with this San Lorenzo three-track stunner! It presents a debut release for Kocleo on Tensnake's platform which sees the artist push a pumping disco and acid house blend of righteous Italo met with the slightest of techno touches. With some progresive heaviness weaving its way into "Fase2", Kocleo's "Break Away" provides a simmered down alternative to the big room antics of "San Lorenzo" and its synth heavy flow. Dancefloor romance!

Didn't I - (6:27) 125 BPM
Review: Four-man crew Melon Bomb's only previous output has been a smattering of re-edits on compilation style releases, so this debut solo single for Tensnake's True Romance label is a significant step in their blossoming career. It's quietly impressive, too, with the Ibiza-based quartet offering up a pair of tracks that are the audio equivalent of sweltering afternoon sunshine. Lead cut "Sweetness" sees them cloak bumping house beats and thickset bass in wavy, delay-laden electric piano snippets, swirling orchestral samples and well-placed spoken word vocal snippets. Virtual B-side "Didn't I" is a little more Balearic in tone, with pulsing, French Touch-style motifs, tropical sound effects and glistening guitar samples riding another chunky bassline and energetic house beats.

The One You Need - (4:01) 108 BPM
Review: Russian DJ/producer Phil Gerus has been releasing material for a few years, but it's only in the last 18 months that his reputation has begun to rise. This outing on Tensnake's True Romance label follows on from a fine EP for Lumberjacks Boogie and a digital-only electrofunk exploration on Futureboogie. The real stunner is "Wearing Her Black Boots Again", a thrusting, Italo-disco inspired exploration full of dirty synth arpeggio lines, delay-laden percussion hits and rubbery, punk-funk bass. Elsewhere, he saunters off towards AOR disco territory on "Make Time", explores heavyweight P-funk pastures on the drum machine sweatiness of "Detective From Kamakura", and distorts and loops up an '80s soul wobbler on digital-only cut "The One You Need".

Sudden Move - (2:34) 141 BPM
Review: Over the last few years, electrofunk-loving Moscow producer Phil Gerus has released some thrilling material. While some of this has been 100% original material, he's rather good at crafting re-edits of obscure, synth-fuelled material, too - as last year's "Make Time" EP on True Romance proved. This return to Tensnake's label is similarly inclined. Check, for example, the NYC freestyle-goes-to-Europe flex of "Kabary" and the spacey '80s soul wriggler "Not That Kind of Girl". Elsewhere, "Sudden Move" is a fine slab of starry, sax-laden deep space brilliance, while "Program Sabotage" is a glassy-eyed, slo-mo bubbler laden with tactile chords and meandering synthesizer melodies.

All In All - (6:11) 119 BPM
Review: Marco Niemerski's latest outing under the now familiar Tensnake alias is a typically varied affair, with the long-serving producer variously joining the dots between druggy Italo disco, kosmiche, disco, electrofunk and deep house. Title track "Machines" sits somewhere between pitched-down Italo-disco and deep space cosmic disco, with Niemerski expertly working a druggy arpeggio bassline throughout. Elsewhere, "All In All" sees him build a wavy chunk of peak-time disco around a bongo-laden rhythm track, spacey electronics and an elastic bassline, while the wonderfully Balearic "1975" sounds like Daft Punk after several kilos of Morocco's finest and a fist full of happy pills.

Review: As the title suggests, this EP boasts fresh reworks of the title track from Marco 'Tensnake' Niemerski's much played Freunchen EP. First to play around with Niemerski's parts (tee-hee) is man-of-the-moment Red Rack'em. The Berlin-based Brit employs some savage sample editing, layering filtered vocal and orchestral samples over a typically tactile, hybrid disco/house groove. Niemerski's old friend Phillip Lauer takes a different approach, re-imagining the track as a bouncy chunk of mood-enhancing Balearic house complete with Italian house piano riffs and bubbly arpeggio lines. Arguably best of all, though, is the killer version by Russian producer Phil Gerus, which sounds like a loved-up fusion of Italo-disco, synth-boogie, Belgian New Beat and sun-kissed Balearica.

Hello? - (5:55) 122 BPM
Review: Tensnake fires up the engine for a new offering on his True Romance imprint with some serious heat. "Hello?" is yet another serving of infectious nu-disco to set the dancefloor alight with its euphoric elements and catchy melodic arpeggio like only the man from Hamburg (who now dwells in Los Angeles) can do! Following up some great releases on the label by Phil Gerus, Freundchen and Janis: you can really count on True Romance in terms of the quality factor.

Review: Six years has passed since Tensnake established the True Romance label, so this retrospective "best of" is arguably long overdue. The ten-track set is naturally dominated by his productions, with highlights including the dreamy Italo-disco revivalism of "Hello?", the slap bass-propelled Balearic disco cheeriness of "All In All" and the seductive electronic sensuality of "Desire". Elsewhere, there's another chance to savour Tiger & Woods superb mid-tempo proto house meets Italo-disco revision of Sunrise Highway's "Some Kind of Fool", a deserved airing for Phil Gerus' synth-laden jazz-funk workout "Make Time" and some stellar disco-house from T.U.R.F (the excellent "Never Get Enough".
