Geiger - Out of Tune

Geiger’s mix of “I Think About You” was one of this writer’s favorite Kompakt Pop’s tracks to yet surface, so this full-length on Firm was a nice surprise. A surprise because there is hardly anything here that could be described as straight dance music. Nice because it’s the sort of rock music that’s highly indebted to dance music and wouldn’t be anything without it. “Cocain-E” is LCD Soundsystem fronted by Jamie Lidell, “Five Years” is a potent pop track that veers off into metal for the choruses, and “Studio Star” indulges in the acid narcotic. A wide-ranging pop album, Out of Tune might just be Cologne’s answer to Phoenix.

In the Mix: Michael F. Gill - “Romance Drones”

The inspirations for this mix were the recent singles Cosmic Sandwich and Odyssey by Steve Barnes, which showcase a new and interesting tangent on the basic micro/electro-house template. It was an epic, sprawling sound that combined the romantic melancholy of Michael Mayers Immer with a heavy psychedelic bent that engulfs you through a series of visceral repetition, trippy vocals, and wandering stratospheric synths. Ive picked tracks here that complement this sound, and sequenced them in such a fashion that the music becomes more open and extroverted as time passes. Hence, things begin with the misty noir-ish glimmers of Anders ilar, move through the brisk druggy bliss of Ewan Pearsons Closer Musik remix, and end up with some Italo/Metro Area influenced tracks by Jersey Devil Social Club and Justus Kohncke. This being the internet and not the club, Ive taken the time to do some re-edits of the tracks in order to emphasize the themes of the mix. I hope you enjoy it.
