About this item
Fresh from a debut on 100% Silk, Berlin artist Westcoast Goddess continues to set forth a vision of psycho-spiritual house music with this debut release on Omena.
"Springtime Forever EP" consists of 4 tracks dating from 1998 to the present, each representing a joyful season of the artist's heart.
Beginning with the Roule-indebted "Summer Song '98" - coursing with searing strings, flanging hooks and a loose house beat, this instantly transports the listener to a better time; before fear, surveillance and narcissism really grabbed hold of our society (Dave's just informed by that there was plenty of narcissism in the late 90s... but hey ho - ed).
"Better The..." is a highly musical number, with interplay between various synthesized elements, a stomping house beat and some brilliant keyboard solos. It has that getting-towards-the-end-of-the-session exuberance that you need when the DJ's only got a few records left to play and should find itself soundtracking a thousand 'lights-on' moments across clubland.
"No One Has 2 Know" sees an authentic NY house banger rolled out with aplomb. Complete with vocal, pumpin houz beats and tight synth stabs it's a no brainer for any main room or festival crowd.
"Blisstonia Babies" completes the set with another high end show boater; rich piano chords paired with lavish synthlines, trilling keys and arm-raising strings; an absolutely stonking house anthem with spine-tingling musicality and fathoms-wide smiles throughout. Nothing has embodied the feel good spirit of house music as much as this track this year! Massive.
As always, Ivo Kiusalaas has provided the label art.
