Sound Support consists of two enthusiastic synth and house aficionados that most are aware of: Lars Dales from Dam Swindle and Lorenz Rhode (keyboard wizard and producer genius). Together they are doing extremely groovy, sun-blushed dance music that's got a bit of French Touch about it, whilst also nodding to DJ Koze and Soul Reducitons' two big festival anthems from the last decade (namely: "Got To Be Loved" and "Pick It Up"). It's that kinda vibe across side A tracks "Higher" and "Bump Into You" - nice filters, dreamy pads, twinkling keys and pumping bass. Daytime house music that kicks like a mule and will go down a storm by the lake at Gottwood.
B-side track, "Work 2 It", has more a 90s feel to it. Instantly getting the elbows out as lashing hats, diva vox and a classic B-line mingle with a nice organ chord progression which has mainroom written all over it. "The Rock" concludes, and lands somewhere between Metro Area, Romare and Dan Shake and should titivate even the most wooden of dancefloor loiterer.
Lars Dales & Lorenz Rhode made most of the EP in 4 day coffee fueled studio session in Lorenz’ studio in Cologne, and apparently have plenty more stuff up their sleeve! We can't wait!
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says:
New Toytonic signing and it's a really strong house EP with diverse reach. From French Touch-esque filtered peaks, to Brooklyn-in-the-Summer deep jams and back via an M1-powered diva moment and a smooth festival daytime roller. There's something for every moment here and the quality is top drawer.
