Elliott may have left Detroit a number of years ago to pursue his dreams in Berlin, but the Motor City's influence still features heavily in his music. On the title track for his latest Ostgut outing, it bubbles to the surface on the brittle, metallic percussion and the malevolent bass that purrs its way through the arrangement. Of course there are other elements at play here, and the siren riff, flickering minor keys and looped vocal snippet have a decidedly European slant. Elliott's ability to weave these two seemingly disparate sounds together makes "Stepmode" so compelling. There is no such move on 'Still Steppin', but the interplay between its dubbed out drums and tropical melodies make it just as enticing.
