Gatefold 2LP version. Nicholas Bussmann sheds his skin once again, now transforming into Nicholas Desamory to release Like You -- a house album of such warmth and rough elegance, it will leave the scene truly excited. House has always been an open genre, allowed to sample, adapt and incorporate other styles. On Like You however, each of the seven tracks opens a new window -- one leading to Bollywood, another one to Bernhard Herrmann, and the next time it might be Morton Feldmann. It's the reduced string and vocal arrangements that lead to this album's specific sound -- the warmth -- evoking the great Norman Whitfield. But all of the sudden, the sound changes direction again to make us realize: it is 2012, and this is how house music sounds in 2012. In recent years, Nicholas Bussmann has brought manifold works into being. His last release was a collaborative album with Chico Mello: Telebossa -- a mélange of Brazilian songwriting, precise electronics and minimal music, receiving rave reviews. In addition, together with drummer Martin Brandlmayer (Radian) Bussmann released two complementary electro-acoustic albums: Kapital Band 1's 2 CD and Playing By Numbers and in 2010, he brought to the stage a concept for a modernized opera with Barnes Dance. Hence, it is not surprising to find several illustrious guests on his new record: Hanno Leichtmann, Florina Speth and Todosch support as instrumentalists. And alongside Nicholas Desamory, Charles Ndubisi, Yusuf Ergün and Lucile Desamory lend their voices to the album. Includes a download coupon.
