"Oliver Koletzki is back. Parker Frisby is back. And house is a nation. On his own label Stil vor Talent, the man himself now releases a four track EP titled This Is So Fuckin' Oldschool. His real persona meets his house alias Parker Frisby, both having produced two tracks. First up is Parker Frisby with two tracks, 'Since You Are Gone' and 'Brain Against Heart.' 'Since You Are Gone' is a deep house-y affair with a stomping bass and an effect-laden loop that keeps getting filled with more well-placed effects and a chopped up vocal sample. Over this soundscape, Parker Frisby creates one of the most wonderfully epic melodies that sounds like a summer Ibiza anthem already. Simply beautiful! Then, Parker Frisby comes up with 'Brain Against Heart': in the foreground of this track is the vocal sample. 'Use your brain' is what we hear over this oldskool filter house loop that turns into a wonderful piano house track when the piano melody kicks in over the percussive beats. Some additional arpeggios turn this track into the perfect summer teaser. Then it's Oliver himself with 'Street Life' and the title track 'This Is So Fuckin' Oldschool.' But 'Street Life' is pretty oldskool as well: a chopped-up vocal sample, a clappy disco groove and one of the funkiest bass lines since Grandmasta Flash, with a full-on, wind-down effect inclusive. It is only the few digital effects that place this track in the 21st century. Just tight! Then the title track: a more electronic piece of synth-pop. A wonderful arpeggio floats over the simple, yet effective loop and bass. Dream away to this gloating synth monster that will run shivers down your spine wherever you are, whatever time it is. House is back!"
