Ludwig A.F. Röhrscheid - Velocity - Exo Recordings International
We're all about new artists coming through on their own imprints, so Ludwig A.F. Rohrscheid's debut, the glorious Velocity, is very much welcome on our charts. The title tune itself is a brilliant bric-a-brac blend of broken d&b in the same tone as PLO man, and of LTJ Bukem before him, which makes for a fine addition to any dance set; "Xenon" closes the A-side with a bouncy, full-bodied house bass driven and charged by a rusty analogue beat with a sublime swing. "Helium" is more of a hands-down dancefloor attacker, looping constantly to the sounds of a distant flute, and "Exoplanet" plays with a similar swarm of sounds, twisting and lopping them endlessly amid a void of beats. Nice touch.
