You may recognise “Behind The Mirror” as being the excellent closing track on CD2 of John Digweed’s latest “Live In London” 4xCD mix compilation on Bedrock. Spain’s Miguel Bastida and Austria’s Florian Kaltstrøm have joined forces with Florian’s fellow countrymen Emil Berliner, Philip Straub and Christoph Abele (aka caTekk) to great a stunning 4-track EP to kick off 2013 in style.
“Behind The Mirror” is all about elegant rhythms, powerful percussion, deep, driving bass and brooding atmospheres, making it a standout track. Emil Berliner (who takes his artist name from the German-born American inventor who is best known for developing the disc record gramophone in the 1890’s) takes things into deeper tech-house territory with his delicious dub-influenced tech re-work.
“Glasso Phone” develops a more organic vibe with vocal snippets over a hypnotic, hissing, percussive backdrop. This is a theme that is expanded upon by Philipp Straub and CaTekk as they develop an absorbing rollercoaster bass heavy groove with their unforgettable remix.
The “De Barcelona a Viena EP” is the first of many exciting new releases coming on Bedrock in 2013. Watch out!
