Hot off the back of “On Top” that featured on our “Deep Love 2017” compilation, Lorenz Rhode returns to the label with his debut full length EP “Risa”. A gifted musician, known for his fierce take on funk, performance prowess on German TV show “NEO Magazin Royale” and as part of Detroit Swindle’s live outfit, he’s sent us a three-tracker packed full of vibe and musicality.

Opening the A-side “And I Said” is an uplifting, funked-up house jam. Exuberant and alive it’s built around a Rhodes riff with a romantic twist, swelling stabs and straight forward percussion direct from Lorenz’ collection of Roland machines. The following “Risa” is loaded with energy. A gritty analogue snare and raw drums punch as central synth lines and rippling arps ramp up the intensity to bursting.

On the B1 the mysterious Amsterdam based K.98 returns with his second ever remix! After the huge success of the “Thrilogy” remix for WOLF Music in 2015, we are extremely happy to see Lorenz’ original turned into a blasting 909 frenzy, 100% guaranteed dance floor action on this one!

Closing we have “Xpandau”, a feel-good indie/disco gem reminiscent of Lindstrøm and Röyksopp. The central lead that sounds like something sampled from a dusty African guitar recording, actually came from a vintage Oberheim Lorenz recently fell in love with. Warbling key melodies dance over the top along with tuned percussion, maintaining the light hearted, tropical tinged tone to the end.
