Christopher Rau is on a big mission against club depression. He knows how to turn a simple beat, a reduced bass line and only a few sound elements into pure heaven. His choice of labels are those who want to keep the world of house music a special place: Pampa, Giegling/Staub, Laid, Mule Musiq, Aim, Ethereal Sounds and Hamburg's Smallville who now present Rau's second album, Two. The cover by Stefan Marx is even more colorful than on the debut, and so is the music ? well-known for his minimalistic choice of ingredients, Rau somehow frees himself of any straight format. These are songs full of sweetness: a glimpse of soul here, a Detroit electro influence there, broken beats, breaks that are no breaks, sexiness and funk and fun. The city of Christopher Rau's music turns into a universe, a world that believes in that particular moment when a minute turns into life. Where you will dive through the surface of beat, bass and sample to find something barely reachable underneath. Even though the essentials of house music were invented some 25 years ago, Christopher Rau proves again how far we can still go. Two is the soundtrack to the sweetest war, a lovely, silent strike against convention, boredom and emptiness.
