Cinthie Christl's 2020 debut album, Skylines - City Lights, was arguably one of the best dancefloor-focused full-length excursions of recent years, with a distinctly retro-futurist vibe that undoubtedly chimed with listeners. There's a similarly timeless and feelgood flex about the Berlin-based producer's first EP for Shall Not Fade. After opening with the sparkling, smile-inducing piano house revivalism of 'Offenbach Anthem', Christl confidently bounces between swinging deep house chunkiness ('13 Steps to Heaven'), organ-powered, sub-heavy New Jersey garage goodness (EP highlight 'Oh No No No', which sounds like a late-night basement anthem in waiting) and bumpin' brilliance ('What You Mean To Me', whose main attractions are a seriously squelchy bassline and superbly sweaty drums).
