For the first time in two years, Frittenbude member Jakob Haglsperger serves up a solo album. It's his third in total, and could well be the most polished and accomplished of the lot. The 12 songs are pleasingly hazy, melodious and entertaining with the German producer combining attractive synthesizer motifs and soft-touch house grooves with some sneaky samples and musical elements variously influenced by glassy-eyed Balearica, nu-disco, ultra-deep synth-pop, revivalist Itallo-disco and slick Euro tech-house. Highlights include "Mein Gluck", the Nicholas Jaar style goodness of "Weed, Wein & Wobbelwurlie", the disco-inspired cheeriness of "Der Song Mit De Trompet" and the Innervisions-esque warmth of "Escape To Infinity".
