"Over the past year -- thanks to releases from artists like Jay Haze, Raz O'Hara and Einzelkind -- Kindisch has proved itself to be a prime outlet for left-field electronic music that satisfies the mind and body alike. The latest artist to join the Kindisch fold is H.O.S.H., aka Hamburg native Holger Behn, who brings us a stylish two-tracker entitled White Elephant. Holger has always been concerned with making dance music that stretches the very notion of what dance music can be, demonstrating a restless commitment to individuality and innovation in tandem with an understanding for the floor. A-side 'White Elephant' takes the most unusual sound -- that of a trumpeting elephant -- and subtly manipulates it, building up an intricate scaffolding of 4x4 beats in support. A smooth, shimmying bass line keeps things moving while Holger layers the elephant sounds to create gorgeous, powerful chords that sound like a real brass section. Despite its quirkiness, the effect is incredibly subtle, and the aggregation of skippy percussion hits and synth counterpoints give this track a lightness of touch which an elephant could only dream of! B-side 'Don Alfredo' is a collaboration with Adriano and charts the kind of deep house waters that we all like to take a dip in."
