"Why bother compromising? Why make concessions to a half-baked track that incites you to almost uninspired dancing? That definitely is not the case with Tomas Andersson's fifth EP Washing Up, which makes a clean sweep with his energies. This track makes you happy. It wants nothing more than to drive it home -- yet it's always up to a few tricks. Full-on euphoria via uncompromising techno with a backward glance. It sounds retro as it remembers the golden era of acid with a misty-eyed smile -- but with today's knowledge in mind. This is how we have known Tomas Andersson so far: the label owner (Average Rec.), remixer (DJ Hell, Sylvie Marks & Hal9000, DJ Assault, Hakan Lidbo) and DJ is a live-rocker who knows how to get those wild feet to make some unruly moves at the first open-air of the year. Washing Up also has a little story to tell: through some twist of fate it landed on the playlist of BBC Radio 1's Soulwax DJs last winter. To this day, people have asked Bpitch Control almost every day about the composer demanding more information. How the track got onto BBC Radio 1 is still kind of a mystery though... Tiga, who has been a fan of Tomas Andersson from the start, wanted to remix the track right away, which he did, as you can hear. On side B he starts out disco-ish and playful, delineating the theme with other devices, before conjuring up a similar bass storm. One more thing: With Washing Up, Tomas captures Berlin today. Tomorrow, or rather in late summer, it'll be the whole world with his corresponding first album on BPitch Control. So make a note in your calendar."
