Starting in 2004 with Made Within the Upper Stairs of Heaven and 2008 with Toinen, Sasse Lindblad has a tendency for symmetry, and now with the release of Third Encounter in 2012, this album has been worth the wait. Analog synthesizers, sequencers and tape decks are something which are widely used in today's electronic music, but it is the mixture of the old and new -- keeping the tradition of live jams instead of pre-defined arrangements, choosing high standards in fidelity but keeping the rough feel to it -- these elements together keep the sound of Sasse one step ahead of the competition, and it is why he is considered one of the most consistent producers in the scene. While "Fingers Inc" and "707 Heaven" pay homage to the golden era of Detroit and Chicago house, songs like "Analog City" and "Fantazy" bring memories of the mid-'90s Sasse material, true deep house as it used to be done. While "Alpha" and "Der Groove" take a naked live-jam approach to how to abuse analog goodies, "Low Slove" and "Treat Me" are raw sample-based tunes, perfect for a late night DJ set. Third Encounter showcases the 20 past years of Lindblad as a musician, DJ and sound engineer -- one who has seen most of the modern musical styles evolve and dissolve.
