"'Souvenir Souvenir,' the repeated phrase of a famous 1967 German pop song comes to mind easily thinking about our new Berlin-based label Pearl. Methinks Riton's 'Hammer of Thor' could easily be as smashing. The main tracks starts with heavy key and string setting and its imminent siren sounds set the pace for things to come. With works for Klang, Get Physical, Fabric et al Riton, pronounced 'Reeton,' the French 'street' term for his first name Henry can easily be called kid of the moment on the block and the gloriously open and full electronic warmth produced highly atmospheric 'Hammer of Thor' justifies it all. Chuggling bass Sounds, touching harmonies and an incredible plastified ebb and flow make a unique track like a breath of fresh air right for the start of the year. Flip it over and let Roman Flügel's remix take things even further on the point. Amorphous sounding, crafty kickdrum setting, a patchy chain of playful reloops, dramatic start and stop structure, tickling looped bells -- stringent mesmerizing dancefloor structure, kickass bass and fitting for no-nonsense all year round use."
