The Voigt brothers' latest missive sounds like an ode to Kompakt's golden era. On "Idolize" they deliver a purring, pulsing groove that veers from the hypnotic bass and chiming chords into a trancey, blissed out climax. Unlike the soulless stadium variant, this approximation of 90s German trance is wide-eyed and evocative, harking back to a more innocent time in dance music. On the flip, it appears that "Synthesize" is going to follow a similar albeit more housey terrain, as hypnotic textures are joined with a disco groove and sensuous vocals, but then midway through, a buzz saw bass, like the Wighnomys at their most belligerent, kicks in to take the track to Kompakt's darker side.
