Boomkat Product Review:
Minimal house demigod Roman Flügel frolics in downbeat and ambient styles with time-honoured finesse echoing his classic Eight Miles High productions.
Blurring distinctions between sylvan and blue hour feels, Flügel yields a carefully pruned bouquet of fragrant styles defined by feathered electronica melodies and seductive, ductile grooves bent between broken beat, hip hop, glimmering jungle and breezy dub. It’s nothing new to his catalogue, but it is beautiful well done and full of typical charm that will snag those who’ve followed his breadcrumb trail since Eight Miles High’s ‘Katalog’ and thru the various shades of minimal and tech house he’s pursued over the decades.
Crackly ambient bliss (‘Atmosphere’) shines the path ahead for fluttering keys and wistful IDM in ‘Home’, and the dub carousel of ‘Frei’, with something like Ghost Box gone jungle in ‘Greenhouse’, and whirring CCO-like electro-dub on ‘Dolphins’ and the naif charm of ‘Duftschulter’ at its midriff. Darker shadows cross the hazy room on ‘Goth’, triggering a moodier 2nd half of drip off synth tone with ‘Sick’ and faded tristesse for bygone times in ‘Die Hoehle’, bringing full circle to ‘Ambienteuse’ and making one wonder if that’s dawn or dusk beyond the curtains.
