Obsession by Various Artists


Obsession” it is a compilation of three remarkable DJs: LetKolben, Ratigar, D.Core, who can make any tracks with own independent and recognizable sounds. Their tracks span different moods and grooves, sometimes are weirder than you can expected, but they always have a good sound. However, this compilation album is also full of pleasing, interstitial mood pieces.

LetKolben‘s track “Atlantis” has the impressive level of comfort and ease that the club always seems to bring out in its residents. The syncopated bass of the track follows a major scale that mixes in with the wistful synthesizer leads, melodies and the voices of the choir. After an extended workout, a lead synth slides its way into the mix. Kolben follows his formula of saving the more psychedelic sounds of his tracks. You can get the sense that dance music runs through LetKolben’s veins, as if it just flows from his fingers. He seems to know what he wants from his tracks and he’s clearly dedicated to following that specific goal.

“Imago” grows into a full-throttle minimal workout, casually propulsive with its percussion rhythms and synth noodling. Ratigar often sounds like he’s simply scribbling over a rhythm track. He is programming skirts around the edge of a full beat, using rimshots instead of a snare. The quality of the elements allows the structure to simply, follow the intensity of the drum programming with little other variation. Nowhere along its seven-plus minutes does the groove falter or wear out its welcome. This track delivers a slow burn, crafting something that would serve well both as a stirring set opener or an emotional end.

“Amaranta” it’s a sort of track a casual listener might scan through and wonder what the fuss is about. D.Core‘s music sounds unconcerned, with anything trendy but at the same time has deep and pensive parts. The bass and drums go in and out and follow the line of percussion and glitch sound together with ambient melody, which briefly makes an appearance into the track. D.Core shows to us how production could be fun and soothing, when relieved of anyone’s expectations.

Like some of other productions on ACHT, these tracks are focused and linear, but sometimes they have structural twists or turns. Hearing them, creep into the mix on a dance floor reveals that the internal simplicity of their construction is deeper and more nuanced.
