Till Von Sein & Tigerskin

Molly brown

Nothing but cool jams for the summer, the German imprint Dirt Crew releases more excellent work from Till Von Sein and Tigerskin. The duo pair up as two heavyweights in the electronic music world; dropping one proper deep house cut. Molly Brown boasts precise sampling, tight production, and soulful breaks. The pair also recorded many instruments live in the studio bringing another elegant touch to the EP.  As the electronic world becomes more accessible, the producers keep it fresh by incorporating analogue and live sounds into one perfect blend.

Bang Alter is an uplifting intro to the release with bright keys and bouncy percussion. Summertime vibes and whimsical sampling of fluttering keys and harder stabs generate a nice balance of danceable yet deep. Home Alone takes a more relaxed journey as big piano reverb; live guitar and melodic bass hits create a luxurious scene of jazz house. The title track, Molly Brown, is a funky dive into old school acid. Loads of sampling and 808 sounds give this one its old school edge but with new school cool.

Pernille’s Kitchen Jam continues the jazz crusade with a funky fresh vibe. It’s mix of disco and soul creates a retro feel of 1970’s New York with a splash of Chicago jack. Stomping and lively it carries an irresistible persuasive voice telling one to dance. Keeping it fresh and innovative drop after drop, Dirt Crew really cleans up on this release. One that is to be heard around the globe this summer and into seasons beyond, Til Von Sein and Tigerskin prove their weight once more with an excellent bit of tunes.
