The other day I was madly scouring blogs looking for cruisy background music that I could bob my head along to. Gin Nation was the centre piece to this collection of music that makes up the soundtrack for a low-budget 80's porno. Then I remembered an artist who'd I'd been told was "the shit".
Session Victim is Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling, two Germanians from Berlin. The following tracks aren't new, and with any luck you may have heard them before. But if you haven't my god are you in for a treat. The pick of their work for me is 'The Keyboarder'. It is a phenomenally well-constructed ride on the Relaxation Express, with chilled off beats and beautifully layered synth chords. It may not have people up and dancing, but this is what you want to listen to over a few quiet beers in a corner lounge of a nice bar. Icy golden liquid in one hand, your phone in the other and repetitive bodily movements in sync with the bass line as you groove in your own little world.
'Contribute' is also pretty good...
I have to throw credit to Paps for putting me onto these guys (I won't act like I found them). Good stuff.
