John Roberts - Glass Eights (Dial / LP22)
Das Album von John Roberts gehört definitiv schon jetzt zu den Deephousealben des Jahres. Dabei lässt er sich selten auf das ein, was man zur Zeit oft genug unter Deephouse falschversteht, sondern konzentriert sich vom ersten Moment an in jedem Track auf die melodischen Aspekte mehr als den Sound, entwickelt für jedes Stück neue Szenerien aus überraschenden Tiefen und hat nur am Rande etwas mit Oldschool zu tun. Ein Feuerwerk an ungewöhnlichen, heimlig klingelnden, abenteuerlich schönen, verzückenden Momenten, die klar machen, dass seine Tracks einfach jede Zeit, jede Phase, jede Bewegung überdauern werden. Musik, die auf dem Floor genau so wirkt wie zuhause, die keinen Ort kennt, sondern nur sich selbst, die sich dabei aber nicht verschließt, sondern immer klingt, als wäre sie schon immer unser bester Freund gewesen.




Really beautiful, deep songs on this Album, love every bit of it. Some faves are Pruned, Glass Eights and Dedicated. Bravo!

Milly De Mori

really nice album, sophisticated and experimental. well done!

Gavin Herlihy

a refreshing break in the promo clouds from the usual loop house overload. lots of tracks are jumping out from this so it definitely sounds like it's worth closer inspection.. THanks.
