Due to the long awaited CD Compilation release "And Suddenly It's Morning" Smallville comes up with a third 12inch issue. The label's darling Sven Tasnadi, also known from his releases on Ornaments, Poker Flat, Cargo, Oh!Yeah! and Liebe*Detail, lightens up the dancefloor with a bright sparkling groover- new villalobosish moves with a deep emotional fill on the A-side. On the flipside we welcome the highly talented newcomer Christopher Rau to the smallville label-roster. Christopher is a friend who hangs out at smallville record store in Hamburg a lot. With friends he runs the Hamburg/ Munich based label Dérive and delighted us and everyone with his „Ne Travaillez Jamais“ Track earlier this year. For his debut on smallville Christopher creates a reduced seductive track, subtly growing to total sweetness on the floor. And suddenly it's morning...

Franklin De Costa

Steve Bug

it is fall, winter is coming. for sven winter is coming big time! i remember from my childhood that sometimes it snows in winter. i like snow! it is so white...
christopher's childhood seems to be a little sad, maybe he is living somewhere where it is dark and cold all the time. but maybe that is a good thing, because if he would live in a sunny country maybe he wouldn't produce such nice tracks.
..and to make a long story short - great ep! : ) thanks

Tolga Fidan


really good stuff..
president bongo

Stacey Pullen

deep slow groove= equal good music

Alland Byallo

I love Smallville!!! Another high quality release. The finest deepness on the planet. I'm convinced that there's 2 Svens... he must have a clone to be making this much FAT stuff so consistently and so frequently!

Patrick Bateman

Really REALLY nice ep from the smallville recordstore! Love it, both sides are great!

Magazin - Proud // Till Kolter

Laidback tracks. Will go straight into my warmup case.

Super EP from one of my favourite labels!!!!!!!
Both tracks are super.

Anthony Collins

both tracks are superb

Radio - Roof FM // Bjoern Schaeffner

Another big-timer from Smallville! Both tracks elegantly surf the waves of that elegiac deep-house style which has become the hallmark of this downright excellent label. To my ears, Christopher Rau's contribution has a slight advantage over the Tasnadi track.

Edgar Dirksen (Cocoon)

Another Tasnadi killer

Sascha Funke

Adam Marshall

winter is a nice dark highway track...



Laurent Garnier

Johnny D

Christopher's " Childhood" is so deep as nice!!! Pure love....

Florian Meindl

both tracks are really nice


Pitchfork / Beatportal / Spin - Philipp Sherburne

lovely stuff from smallville as usual, moody and hypnotic.

though i have to say there's one drum sound in "winter" that kind of bugs me, that crunchy bitcrushed handclap ever two bars -- hopefully it'll sound better in the non-streaming version. :)


Nothing bad I could possibly say about this release other than the fact that its meant to be played on vinyl for sure. Cant wait to buy it!! Such a wicked release. Beautiful deep plaintive vibes here. Will play to death. thanks.

Ryan Crosson

'Winter' is a big tune but the deepness and the beats of 'Childhood' make this new release a goody !!! excellent selection from a great label ! thx


Sven's track is a hypnotic ethereal tech house groover. And Christoper Rau's track is a basic mellow house song that just builds and pulses. Will be playing both out. Another good smallville release.
