"Hamburg's beloved Liebe*Detail label has ushered some of today's most sought-after names into the spotlights of the world's best dancefloors. One such artist who is currently rising up the ranks is young Matthias Meyer. A strong member of the Liebe*Detail family and a regular on the German underground scene, his first two releases with the label explored extravagant and dramatic realms to great success. Now, following his recent hit Tout Va Bien, highly praised across the board for its warming, building sentiments, Matthias joins forces in the studio with compadre Patlac, another promising new producer also from his home town of L√ľneburg. Free-flowing and full of endless atmosphere, 'Skipper' begins with warmth and rolling atmosphere, tracking over itself with texture and color. A complex undergrowth of static hisses and rich organic percussion build towards long and teasing breaks in the bass energy. The pair's use of deep house stabs and long, drifting ethnic string phrases lifts the track high into the rafters, creating the perfect late night trip into another place. Fluid and full of dynamics, musicality and love, 'Skipper' is already proving its worth. Mannheim's Cecille Record's boss Nick Curly has passionately raised the bar for the label's deep-house-come-minimal sound, and now proves his remixing skills here with solid functionality. Chunky, room-filling drums roll over and over while the key stabs from 'Salt City' are satisfyingly thrown to the floor."
