Berlin-based Oliver Deutschmann releases his debut LP on his own co-owned Vidab. With a classic sense of house and techno, Deutschmann doesn't unnecessarily complicate things; deep warm grooves dominate and the album follows a natural flow. Fans of the understated house of Dial, Smallville etc listen in.
The third release on Berlin's freshly founded Jackoff imprint comes from Vidab's Oliver Deutschmann. His 'Waterfalls Are Good' is a sweet up-tempo piece of chord-driven house, turned into a sublime laid-back late-night exercise by Detroit's Patrice Scott. Give this a spin.

A further collaboration between Davenport and Deutschmann 'Trump' sees wistful synth washes under a bouncing icey motif. Jerome Sydenham adds an immersive cavernous bass and Brendon Moeller's fluidly agile refix engages thoroughly. A biting acid remix rounds things off nicely. Recommended!
Vidab's Davenport & Deutschmann contribute their 'The Kristian Slayter' EP to Polytone, with 'Breakin Free' being a nicely grooving techno track, characterized by perpetually morphing vocals and steadily pushing chords. Remixes come from Mathias Vogt and Roberto Bosco, the latter providing a real peak-time bomb.
