"This is the first EP on Flash Recordings that doesn't feature label owners, Florian Meindl and Oliver Koletzki. But they have made sure to look for a quality replacement. No one else than Cologne-based artist Daso -- renowned for his previous releases on labels like MBF, Session Deluxe, Ghostly and Connaisseur -- teams up with his buddy Pawas to create their first release 'Night Express' on Flash. Pawas has just had his first record out on Adam Kroll and Markus Müller's imprint Squonk Records and has been a DJ for 9 years, moving from India to Cologne one year ago. On the A-side, Daso & Pawas present 'TGV': a beautifully deep melody that swings along a powerful loop. 'ICE' -- the name of Germany's high-speed train is clearly more electro-driven. A slightly broken beat with a thumping, organic bassline pumps above an ever-changing soundscape that culminates in some euphoric, high-pitched synths. Never too much, this is a perfect example of elegant understatement. Also on the flip side is the track 'Bummelzug,' which translates as 'very slow train' in German. This is a dub-techno masterpiece. Deep dubs and arpeggios flow over the simple beats with a great clappy snare drum. Dreamy, hypnotic, melodic!"
