A plethora of different dancefloor flavours from Frankfurt’s Chris Geschwidner, across four tracks, that take in the warmth and soul of house and the cold steel beauty of techno and bound them up into something fresh and altogether new. ‘Corroded’ has the colliding drum machines and handclaps of vintage techno or even electro, but welded to a skippy, playful beat that is a definite mood lifter, while dreamy synths seductively cut a swathe around the metronomic hypnotism. ‘Pass Over’ is smoother, sleeker and combines a bleep techno approach to the soundscape with a bed of comforting Detroit-style synths and strings. ‘Viktrak’ has more classic Motor City influences but a more classic garage-slanted beat regime – imagine Derrick May’s ‘Nude Photo’ overhauled by Roy Davis Jr. ‘The Free’ ends the set off with simple but effective electro funk flourishes and a sense of sunny optimism, bringing this lively, accessible but deep affair to a close.
