Review

DJ T. has proved, there is no substitute for experience. A career in dance music that spans three decades, has trained him well in the nuances of what it takes to keep up with the demands of a grueling 2009 that included the release of his second album, embarking on six month-long worldwide tour, while still heading up the A&R for the Get Physical, Get Digital and Kindisch labels. The latter of these imprints is the worthy recipient of his, and studio partner Thomas Schumacher’s, final release of the year. Slow-building percussion rhythms are an effect that T. and Schumacher have mastered as a means to give ‘Try To Understand’ elapsing energy, rather than all balled up into four bar loops over six minutes. Putting in effort and sparing no sound of detailed individualization has a genuine lasting affect, and the main reason the tunes stay a cut above the rest. ‘Try To Understand’ is a seminal track that perfectly epitomizes what the Kindisch label stands for. T. calls up one of his favorite producers of this year, &ME. &why not? &ME has been smashing dance floors all year long with his tune ‘F.I.R.’. He flips the script on ‘Try To Understand’ by adding a dash of Techno, a pinch of 909 flavor and a whole lot of bass. Enough in fact to huff and puff down the walls of any club. Pierce & Jerl get nominated to grace ‘Try To Understand’ with their brand of “Cologne-honed” funk. This comes in the form of slightly pitching down the vocals, to give the tune that ‘turn the lights down and turn the volume up’ effect. Some slight tweaks of the percussion and a bubblier bass line make ‘Try To Understand’ a little easier to get. This single symbolizes one the most fruitful periods of DJ T.’s career. Simultaneously reaffirming his trusted reputation for underground beats while supporting artists he believes in. Indeed a splendid end to the year for T. and Kindisch.

Partysan.net: “ch freue mich ja regelmäßig über Neuigkeiten aus dem Hause Kindisch. Zum einen finde ich das Artwork mit den Kinderbildern immer wieder nett. Zum anderen verstecken sich hinter jedem Release neue knackige Perlen, die man ungehört kaufen kann. DJ T lädt uns dieses Mal ein, um mit warmen Houseklängen und einigen wenigen Vocal Snippets eine perfekte Party zu beginnen. Perkussiver und mit den unten liegenden Basswellen schnippend geht es im &Me Remix weiter nach vorn. Pierce & Jerl zerhacken alles in ihrer Version noch etwas stapfiger, was dann alles zu einem echten Finale zusammenwachsen läßt. Nein, halt! Das Original nochmal hinterher - und das Bild ist wirklich rund!”
