Spanish DJ and producer German Brigante follows high-profile releases on labels like Get Physical Music, Saved, Monaberry, and Kittball with his debut album, Bipolar, deepening his focus on a bumping, groovy form of tech house that aims straight for the hips and keeps dancefloors filled with energy. Bipolar is a ten-track selection of some of Brigante's best work to date, featuring vocals from Nick Maurer and a collaboration with Synesthyzer and FreakMe. "Synopsis" introduces the album with a warm bath of pads and synthwork before Brigante gets down to business with Maurer on "The Ones." A soft number, with a delicate and melancholic atmosphere, the track utilizes numerous elements to evoke a beautiful early synthpop feel, as Maurer's vocals do the rest. "Symbiosis," another scene-setting synth-bath, precedes the deliciously retro "Microluxe (808 Instrumental Mix)," with its big synths and classic percussion. "So Good," which appeared in remixed form in late 2015, is included here in its original, gut-grinding, foot-tapping glory. "We Got it," the collaborative effort between Brigante, Synesthyzer, and FreakMe, is another fantastic, dynamic track sure to work any dancefloor into a frenzy. Brigante takes the energy down a bit for "30 Degrees," employing thick, deep, dark synths under a warm canvas of pads and percussion. "Memories (Get Physical Edition)" is another dark, frantic number that delivers a heavy dose of tech house to the album and brings the energy back up. Before the gentle outro of "Monomodule," Brigante delivers one last adventure through the night with another solid dance track, "Be Right Back." Bipolar is a wonderful example of how this synth-savvy producer masterfully forges and arranges his creations for a result that is more than the sum of its parts.
