Basic Motion by Marco Resmann
Following up on the high quality remix effort for Vince Watson's 'Planet Funk' released via Poker Flat in February it's now the time for Berlin's Marco Resmann to serve his first ever solo 12" on Poker Flat.
With 'Basic Motion' the head of the highly respected Upon.You-label and founding member of the infamous duo Luna City Express explores the deeper realms and moodier corners of today's Tech House terrain.
Starting the journey with the highly seductive title track 'Basic Motion' based upon a subtle, but well catchy bassline motif that's accompanied by raw and slowly accumulating synth tones which finally fall together, building a stirring, intoxicating melody inevitably causing a heavy buzz on the dancefloor, we see Marco Resmann at his very best here, catering an instant classic that's not meant to leave DJ's boxes for ages.
With 'Ladies & Gentlemen' the tense, well-jackin' feel of Chitown takes over, offering a basic, stripped down bassline menu, ever bubbling, slightly acidic synths and a darkish, quite epic organ-referring line providing the goosebumps and a thrilling surprise for all late night punters.
Finally we see 'More Or Less' sweetly rounding off this three track E.P. with tender and longing, melancholia driven and enchanting, slightly off-key strings sweetly contrasted by a frolicking, expertly crafted main theme that perfectly captures the secret desires of all nightbound creatures and dancefloor crowding souls.
