Onirik & Pablo Tarno - FH:02 - Finest Hour Records
Onirik and Pablo Tarno's Finest Hour label surfaced late last year with a mission statement to release 24 records for 24 hours, and it was inaugurated in the finest (sorry) style possible by long term Berlin fixture Andreas 'Audio' Werner. FH:02 sees the label heads at the controls, collaborating on two productions that are complemented by a remix from Birdsmakingmachine. Despite this being Tarno and Onirik's debut release together, there's a palpable sense of studio chemistry on display that augers well for any future Finest Hour transmissions from the pair, with the deep, rolling opener "September Swing" perhaps the pick of the two. It's matched by the Birdsmakingmachine remix of "Hotel Samariter" which has certain rusty quality to the groove that makes it really memorable.
