"Daniel Mehlhart steps up to the plate for Kindisch's seventeenth release, Origami - an exquisitely deep, languid house jam laced with strung-out, processed Spanish guitar and gently euphoric xylophone arpeggios. 'Origami' is languid, yes, but not exactly laid-back: it's held up and propelled forward by a gently vibrating lattice of kick-drum and snare hits, through which a dubby, molten bass-line and taut, time-keeping chords dreamily but determinedly flow. The perfect soundtrack to the mixed pace of summer's long days and even longer nights. Mehlhart harks back to his acclaimed past releases on Karmarouge and Neutonmusic for 'Alles Klar Alles Easy,' which sees brushed drum and shaker sounds edited into a quietly explosive techno work-out with serious swing. 'Fata Morgana' begins in a more linear, four-to-the-floor style, but those percussive flourishes quickly accrue into something more strange, and then out of the ether comes an entrancing, South American-style chorus line. The voices mingle imperceptibly with woodblock strikes and caustic snares, injecting the techno DNA of 'Fata Morgana' with a sick and psychedelic voodoo funk. With this 12″ Kindisch once again proves itself to be a preeminent stable for experimental, expressive dance-floor music, and Daniel Mehlhart affirms his status as one of our most daring and capable producers."
