This second album released on Basti Grub's very own imprint Höhenregler is his spiritual homecoming. A musical renaissance flow(er)ing on the fertile ground of Basti Grub's imagination, Primavera invites the listener to step into the magical, introverted world of mantra-like tech-house and guides them atmospherically through nine hand-crafted mind- and body-moving gems jammed with exuberance, life, imagination, instruments and vocals. Tracks like "Holding On" and "La Paz" fluctuate in a different rhythm, colors and perception shift and set the pace for beloved jungle house party moments: recorded somewhere between Kenya and Chile, sounds, voices, drums and instruments were meticulously collected and polished to play a very special role somewhere on this homogeneous journey. Befriended artists like Andres Zarzuela and Daria who has worked with Basti Grub on quite a few occasions, turn singers and, with their voices and songs, add on to the special vibe of the album. Basti Grub loves to dabble with out-of-boundary sounds, styles and rhythms, rare track titles and surprising combinations, making the exotic sound domestic and the domestic cool. His forthright, joyful attempts to take the seriousness out of the contemporary music scene do not stop him from sounding seriously solid, creating multi-faceted tracks that do not seek to be fashionable but reflect deep playfulness and sincere personal pursuit of expression in a contemporary manner. Celebrating the exuberance of sound from different parts of the planet, he gathers what catches his ear -- the freaky afterhour conversation about pizza in "Journey" being the best example -- and weaves everything into a quirky yet calming stream of perception. The full-grown musician is led by passion and personal taste: swing, reggae and an aching desire to be able to speak and understand Spanish are some of the vital ingredients of Basti's music.
