Danilo Schneider & Eveline Fink - Numanthia EP

Not so long after reviewing something related to Danilo Schneider, in the Seidensticker & Salour – Say Here Extended Play, we had to squeeze a little bit Enough! label, on latest releases and never too late again, ask for some support for them in our Facebook page since it’s a project with lots of love in it. Even this “Love the Vinyl” attitude of releasing only in Vinyl, nowadays, is of great courage to us. Literally! Btw, you support, here!

The kind of sound and rythms that often comes from this label headquarters is something of just crying out loud for more and more. And this is a impressive fact for something that is just a baby in Germany effervescent electronic music scene. It haves cadence, it haves connections of intricate music fibers that hold together an amazing tapestry and role of sound textures, and this is generally a definition that goes along all Enough! releases. In a nutshell: It’s only love and they give it away in every release, it’s never enough for them!

Confirming all this words, every time we touch an EP from them we keep getting surprised on how the standards keep the same since the first EP they released. An even more spicy fact on this release is that Eveline Fink and Danilo Schneider share a passion that outcomes as some kind of aura in this release, being them the main dynamos behind Enough!, they would never let the fans down on their first official partnership. And they didn’t!
Plus, Schneider & Fink sounds really great as well, kind of Bonnie & Clyde of the electronic music scene!

Starting with Numanthia, the Schneider’s trademark bassline seems shy to appear on start, but this is only a minor thought detail to create expectation on a right foot blasting entering at 0:34, transporting the listener to a familiar place, Schneider’s bass land! All the rhythm suddenly starts to cristalize sweetness expressed by a tinkling melody, and yeah, welcome do Eveline’s fairy land! So, nothing so easy to define as the opposites that complement perfectly! In a fight along the track, surfaces the melody, then the rythmic bassline just seems to contradict the melody and then the doubt is installed on which is better. None, all just fits perfectly into a crystalline voyage!
Mahogany is hymn to cadence and rhythm keepers, swishing a corrugated mid frequency plenty of popping connections in the highs complemented by a grunting bassline, fitting properly any “keep n’go” moment. We must say we love the way a bumpy drum high keeps re starting the rhythm cycle every one step in four in the 4/4 tempo, along with the dub charism of the entire track, is just delicious!
Marc Miroir, needing no presentations between us, mastermind behind Paso Music Label, adopts a slightly homogeneic moisture for his interpretation of Numanthia, seeming to not outshadow the main achievement of Schneider & Fink duo, shuffling all the elements while maintaining the original spine rebuilding it all in a progressive direction meshed in a balanced and grooved bassline.

Suiting all rhythm enhancers and cadence keepers, this Extended Play is certainly a near perfect release within the dynamic electronic spectrum, focusing an essence with three tracks that complement very well within each other. If U’re seeking to have a special energy secret that marks something special in your roster, this one is for you. Isn’t varied in styles, but considering what’s aimed, nearly perfect, and normally, that’s the goal for an EP. It’s just a matter of time for the LP that’ll consecrate this duo without any further questions.

Moomin - She Said She Won't Be That Long Away

Moomin, or should we say, Sebastien Genz, is one of those cases where the releases start appearing, in a very subtle way, and even if the electronic market is crowded nowadays of new names, appearing every day, there’s a real line that defines and separates genius from average. Moomin has not crossed that line with this release, we’ve been aware to his talent since “Sweet Sweet” on Smallville Records. At those times I was just about to make a review but then, suddenly between all my lack of spirit and time at the moment I left it, but I remember pretty clear the thought “this guy will release something that will get an effective review from me in the next times”. Well, it was not needed to wait for less than a year and other releases confirming this. This AIM 008, “She Said She Won’t Be That Long Away” is a masterpiece in all frequencies and his productions assume kind of a “Nicolas Jaar” ambiance that, strangely enough, doesn’t get the same applause. Well, from us for sure it does, maybe is a hype thing that we’ll never understand... What’s really a fact is that my curiosity and the opportunity to see Moomin live, just to confirm this review, appeared at Electrosanne in Lausanne (Switzerland) this weekend in a deep small, hot, and underground club called “La Ruche” were, along with Cristopher Rau composing the duo “Roaming” they made a brilliant act confirmed in the sweat of happiness that fulfilled all the place.

So, getting facts straight, Moomin’s productions always have a glare of sweetness, happiness and deep emotion attached to it. This is probably the best description I can get for his productions, diluted somehow between deep dub mixed with a superior class of production. It can get you to states of deep happiness and deep introspection without ever getting boring or repetitive. It’s a own classy touch Moomin haves that one can fast realize in the first 30 seconds of listening. To any of his releases, and, of course, this is no exception but in fact a strong confirmation.
With 3 tracks, we start with Beautiful As You Are, which was released in youtube along with a very artistic video just before the getting to stores. Wow, it’s just impressive how it enters your subconscious emotions and gets a direct attachment to the listener. Kick straight and simple, mind games with cymbals and a lovely piano create a illusion of a beautiful place appearing in front of your eyes retinas and then a Sax.. yes, a Sax, this says so much of how high class this music is when all things just convey together, a masterpiece of deep origins. Better even, it can take you to some of your own origins or a special moment of your life, just of how touchy it is.
Then Don’t Fly If It’s Foggy, a bumpy and smooth ride within a magnificent built bassline. Yeah, this is so bipolar and I really hate the fact I don’t have a linearity in words to express something so clear and beautiful. And then another great mid sound just takes you again to another wonderful place where it seems Moomin definitely lives. I even have no more words, please, only listen.
To finish such a perfect release, a bit of variation within same melodious textures with She Said She Won’t Be That Long Away, naming the Extended Play. Thriving to a little bit of experimentation and alternative circumstances, it just closes a state of the art production, a release strongly recommended to listen alone. If you’re listening it with someone you think may fall in love, thrust our advice, you will for sure!
Within the sound area of deep dub this release is A class, confirming Moomin production style and fingerprint, making us just wonder when he’s going to stop getting a release better than the previous one. We just hope never! The sky is the limit, literally.
