Even If You Sleep E.P. by Maik Loewen
Since Maik swapped his drum kit for a synthesizer and a 303 in the nineties he became totally addicted to electronic music. Fortunately he didn't swap his rhythmic talent and so both his live sets and his productions offer brilliant and subtle rhythm constructions.His first releases on Tonsport ('Arnika' 2002), Trapez ('Ein Jahr ein Monat' 2004) and Karmarouge ('Mescal', 2004) proved already that Maik is at the forefront of talented artists emerging from Cologne, Germany.
His deep understanding for functional sounds enables Maik to playfully produce upfront clubmusic.Released in the Poker Flat White series, his new EP 'Even If You Sleep' captivates by the straight dancefloor functionality charged with many elaborate, subtle details and brilliant sounds. Not to forget the huge portion of groovy funkiness.The three tracks on the EP nicely explore different nuances of Maik Loewen's sound. The funky and uplifting 'Napping At The Switch' spreads a positive energetic vibe, while 'Bright Night' comes in a darker vein, before the nerdy 'Night Shift' rounds off this brilliant EP.
