"'I came the long way...' or 'Good things come to those who wait...' can be taken quite literally when it comes to how far we've travelled to get to this point. It's been 3 years since Aksel Schaufler a.k.a. Superpitcher dropped the legendary debut single Heroin/Tomorrow (KOMPAKT 35). Since then, he has earned a fervent underground following thanks to a string of singles and remixes -- perhaps the most promising purveyor of the schaffel-techno surge since Wolfgang Voigt. With Here Comes Love, Superpitcher effortlessly succeeds in delicately balancing songwriting and DJ music. The result excretes charm and personality -- referencing the most dazzling moments in club and pop music's history. Envision this scenario floating on a cloud fuelled by pure emotion -- Françoise Hardy and DJ Pierre slow-dancing in Jamaica's Studio One, Brian Ferry taking an inebriated Elvis Presley's temperature, and contemporary R&B flirting with Cologne's minimalism -- straight into your own soul-stirring disco. From the Moroder-tipped bass and mood bells tolling the opening of 'People', it's plain to see that Schaufler studio trickery has opened up to make room in the mix for the vocals that will figure heavily into every track that follows. The underlying agitation of 'People' gives way to the jump-up bounce of one of the album's highlight tracks, 'The Long Way', in which Schaufler's hazy cabaret crooning attests over and over again, 'I came the long way just to find you.' From hereon in the album swings back and forth from periodic lapses of introversion from boys who think too much ('Sad Boys') to the openhearted diary-like affectations of 'Love Me Forever', 'Lover's Rock', and 'Happiness'. Here Comes Love features previously unreleased tracks recorded over a continuous period of over 12 months. The result is proudly an album rather than a simple compilation of new tracks. It's difficult for us to avoid repeating that over-used P-word as it's so pleasurably melting in our mouth. Here comes POP. Here comes Superpitcher. Here comes Love."
