Christopher Rau succeeds in what rarely happens in the universe of house music: he creates a dream around that one magic loop which seems to last forever on the dancefloor. Now, after releases on Staub, Laid and Smallville, the dream develops, the magic expands: Christopher Rau's debut album Asper Clouds builds up one hour of pure beauty. No trend to be followed, no invention to be intended, it is the reduced gorgeousness that lets us float on sweet Asper Clouds. Nick Holder, Theo Parrish, Moodymann, Pete Rock, J Dilla -- they all simply cached the right sense for magic samples, heavenly loops, and warm bass lines -- Christopher Rau might not connect to these heroes personally, but he belongs to that group of magicians who forms happiness out of a small amount of ingredients. His music has the sweetness and warmth of the city of Hamburg at delightful venues such as the Golden Pudel Club and Smallville Parties at Ego. After "Ne Travaillez Jamais" became the favorite track on Smallville, the idea of an album was born. Asper Clouds is simple and lovely.
