In the time since the 2007 release of their euphoric full-length debut, Pan-O-Rama (MOBILEE 003CD/MOBILEE 029LP), Pan-Pot (Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix) have seen relationships bloom and wilt, celebrated the birth of Benedix's child, embraced adventures, and founded their Second State Audio label, all while cultivating one of the heaviest and most consistent tour schedules of any present-day artist. The wait between Pan-O-Rama and their 2015 follow-up was not due to a lack of time or ideas -- the duo has spent the intervening years carefully calculating and constructing, and now present their highly-anticipated second studio album, The Other. Through all this Pan-Pot have created a body of work perfectly displaying their growth, not only as artists and individuals, but also as a cohesive unit forged into one single, astute mind. Over the span of 14 tracks, the duo showcase not only their impeccable knowledge of sound-craft, but also their uniquely diverse scope, spanning a wide range of genres and influences. While the album has an abundance of big-room techno productions, including "Pina," "Twelve," and "Get In (feat. Kevin Knapp)," it's also intricately scattered with shimmers of sound ranging from experimental bass and left field to borderline pop and down-tempo. With cuts like "Sleepless" (which features L.O.U. from Abby, who also contribute to a track) and "Riot" (with Berlin-based singer Frankie), Ippenberger and Benedix exhibit a rare maturity. The Other is not merely another extended EP from a dance music artist, but a grand display of the duo's sophistication, commitment, and passion for the music to which they have so faithfully devoted themselves. With countless EPs, remixes, and their Pan-O-Rama album already establishing them as tried and true artists, as well as their collaboration with Susi Sie's visionary visual artwork for the tour supporting this album, it's The Other that will truly guarantee Pan-Pot a place in the history books. Open your mind. Free your body. The long wait is over. Lose yourself in The Other.
