DJ Koze's Pampa has already a lot to be proud about - including the reissue of Isolee's We Are Monster - but this new album by Ada may propel it into the mainstream. Sounding like "Bryter Later" period Nick Drake getting comfortable with Jose Padilla's DJ sets, the German producer delivers jaw-droppingly beautiful songs like "Faith" and "On The Mend", where breathy vocals and plaintive, chiming bells are combined with mournful guitar playing and ambient textures. Meanwhile, "Interlude" and "Happy Birthday" embrace IDM sensibilities, the latter in particular teeming with warbling melodies. However, it would be wrong to dismiss Meine Zarten Pfoten as being fey or ephemeral, and the brooding bass of "At The Gate" is a reminder that while Ada's head is in the clouds, her feet remain planted on the dancefloor.
