If you were expecting floor-friendly electro house, then you have probably come to the wrong place. German producer Oliver Huntemann is known for making grungy bass and soaring melody-led big tunes, but this release opts for a different tact. While "Melbourne" does feature an enveloping filter and an epic breakdown, it does so against the backdrop of a skeletal, minimal techno groove. "Tasmanian Tiger" represents a more radical rethink. The bass is murderous, its subs having more in common with 90s jungle than modern electro house, while its lithe claps and pointillist trance riffs provide the basis for subtle kicks and a stepping rhythm. It sounds like Huntemann wanted to escape the sound he is associated with, and on Play! 04, he has succeeded.
