Infiné, easy music for the hard to please
Once upon a time, a town, lost in the middle of Germany, surrounded by hills and forests, crossed by a river, and mostly inhabited by enlightened students. Far from the extravagances of Berlin, JENA is no less flourishing artistically.
Next to Mathias Kaden, The Wighnomy Brothers, sits Mario Willms aka DOUGLAS GREED, sower of organic techno for labels of the likes of Freude Am Tanzen oder Compost.
InFiné celebrates with its XVIIth black chrome release the advent of the town and its “New Innerstate Strategies”, packages Douglas best Deep, House and Techno beats and features the voice of 2009 Springs awakening!
The original version, only available digitally, opens itself on a steady rhythm backed up by enchanted waves, guitar strings and crystallizes an obsessive electronic gong. The melancholy and the groove of the lyrics of DELHIA DE FRANCE drive the listener to an almost Romantic House, as introspective as delightful.
The “Tofu on ice edit ”, A-Side of the 12” synthesizes German Deep-house sound at this best. Led by percussive beats, the voice of Delhia reaches the heights of the stomping pleasures without losing the refinement of the original version.
On the B-Side, “Sapphire” is a track which fully deserves its name. As hard on the dancefloors as the peak time should sound like. As blue as an unleashed sea, where dizzying waves break into bubbling beats, spreading the most compelling Techno foam.
You got the picture? Douglas Greed “New Innerstate Strategies” is not just an ep, it’s a political and environmental statement.
