Oskar Offermann -- Frankfurt-born DJ, producer and label owner based in Berlin -- has been around the international house scene for the past seven years now. After having several releases on his own labels (White, Rimini) as well as on befriended labels (Aim, Mule), this is Offermann's debut full-length. The album, entitled Do Pilots Still Dream of Flying?, feels like an overview of his musical work so far, without leaning too much on previously-established standards. The album surprises with its ambition towards increased musicality, and presents itself as an homage to what potentially lies behind the horizon, not as a wrap-up of the past. Melodies and vocals instead of patterns and structures: Oskar has deliberately taken off his deep-house glasses and tried to work production-wise more along the lines of traditional song-writing. Why? Because it just felt right. Contentment and calmness have taken over the initial excitement and ecstasy, personally as well as professionally. In Oskar's words, he has "finally arrived in his profession as a DJ and producer."
