This is the second full-length release from Systematic founder, Düsseldorf's Marc Romboy. After collaborations with John Dahlbäck, Chelonis R. Jones, Jence and Zoo Brazil, Romboy released his debut artist album Gemini in 2006 to great critical acclaim. Romboy has also released on labels including Ovum, Simple, Brique Rouge, Superstition, 20:20 Vision and more. He also regularly collaborates with Stephan Bodzin, crafting tracks that delicately and melodically enhance the experience of listening to electronic music. Contrast is produced in cooperation with 45 Rocks and brings forth vocal collaborations with artists including Chelonis R. Jones, Blake Baxter and Mr. K-Alexi. Embracing the concept of contrasts as part of a new life philosophy, Romboy pits himself against sonorities that seem antithetical to dance music, but flow in total symbiosis, embracing difference. When you listen to the kicking and techy "Sonora" and afterwards to the Detroit techno-influenced "Elif," with its addition of jazz saxophone, it is as thrillingly high contrast as one could get, defining and defying category.
