They put it quite nicely in that song from Tocotronic: "The youth have built it themselves." Tim Vitá & Oliver Gehrmann have been fans of Freude-am-Tanzen for a while now. Currently these inexhaustible and nuts-and-bolts record-spinning dudes - post their digital label debut "136 Tales" - have a vinyl edition on the way. Oliver & Tim are known as solo-artists in the world of warm beats. Tocotronic once more: "We had a few words with them. From there we determined that we like it around here." A full-throated studio session all together brought about the maxim: Let there be house! And "24 Pieces" was in the bag. They seem to posses an affinity for numbers in their titles. Fortunately they paint their sounds not only after such elementary means, but rather with sensual artistry and authentic musicality. From this EP bubbles forth modern house with a melodic sensibility, honoring the past, a hymnic-character, an easiness with the vocals, experimental and the midnight train to the dance floor. Vitá & Gehrmann, a duo which the label name completely personifies. Thank heavens the two have each other...
With their dream beat-craft implements completely submerged in the nineties, 2013 is nonetheless well-served. Vitá & Gehrmann awaken just in time and bring "Remember" along. This strictly chords & rhythms simply bangs the floor tiles relentlessly.
B1. Grand Peak
What starts as decently basking in deepness, climbs evermore to a manifest "Grand Peak". So folks, the 6:51 is up you can lower your hands now. Crazy thing this here that blasts smoke & strobes - even under blazing sunshine - away.
B2. Second Dub
Hey, this is your typical completely unjustified and at first overlooked B2 piece that after years has been revived through multiplier-dons to Discogs-level-amplitude. Have a look or rather LISTEN up. A TUNE is what they're getting at.
Second (Digital Bonus)
The second-dub-twin who at the table partakes of a few slices more that sit a little longer on the ribs and to boot has the Gameboy switched on laying by the side. Best regards, Oliver Goldt
