Review

Another legendary techno producers deliver the goods on Be As One. This time is Sweden’s own Samuel L Session with 2 singles straight out of his upcoming first ever artist album, soon to be released on the israeli label. “Big Bad Drum” is exactly what the title says, a drums driven track with a bassline reminiscent of Saunderson’s “E-Dancer” techno. Already tested by a few lucky ones, this tune is having a monster impact on the dancefloors with its funky snares and distinctive over voice . “Chimes” still carries an old school vibe, taking a classical and deeper approach. SLS sound at its best, reminds us why the don has been here for the last 15 years. A solid preview of what to expect from Samuel’s album, classical groovy techno which reminds us how real techno is suposed to sounds like. Forthcoming on Be As One in October.

Aber keine Angst, hier geht es nicht um Tribal, Cosmic oder ander trommelige Spielarten, sondern einfach nur um Beats fettester Art, die eben genau das machen, was sie schon immer tun sollten. Man kann sich fast schon erlöst fühlen, endlich wieder dieses Gefühl zu erhalten, wenn man genau diesen Stoff, aus dem der amerikanische altschulische Techno gemacht ist, zu Ohren bekommt. Da nickt alles mit dem Kopf und geht fleißig und gepflegt ab. Dollet Dingens!”
