This is the debut full-length release by hotly-tipped Rotterdam-based Estroe. The CD consists of tracks produced by Estroe over the span of a few years, in which she spent a lot of time enhancing her production techniques and developing her creativity. As the artist herself explains: "Some tracks were made in rough times, while others were made under happy circumstances, and perhaps you can tell. For me, music is an emotional vent allowing me to express my feelings and freeing me of my restlessness. This makes the album very personal and I am terribly excited to share it with the world and with you." Directly inspired by her recent life experiences and passions, "Flirtatious Concubine" was produced right after a particularly-inspiring booking in Tokyo, and "Inspirited Away" came to life thinking about two producers who really inspired Estroe: Steve Rachmad and John Beltran. Elemental Assets is reflective of her DJ-work -- full of versatile techno with room for deep undercurrents as well as pure dancefloor work. Her style is warm, subtle, but at the same time very energetic. Two guest vocalists, Miss Kittin and Sam Leigh-Brown, also help lift these delicately-crafted tech-house tracks to the next level.
