Boomkat Product Review:
More expertly-produced slippery, low-slung deep house goodness from the shockingly-reliable Galcher Lustwerk - there's even a slappin' synth-heavy remix from Midwestern techno legend Dan Curtin.
We don't deserve Galcher Lustwerk. With each release, he reminds just how good house music can be when you avoid the trappings of gear fetishism or fads and head straight for the groove. He follows up the 'Information Redacted' release with this new EP, playing to his strengths. Sultry vocals, simple and effective rolling bass and fluid, driving beatbox rhythms that just about remind us what dancing thru a cloud of blunt smoke at 3AM felt like. It sounds like underrated Chicago deep house legend Gemini given a fresh lick of paint and 4k remaster.
Galcher draws further parallels with the Midwestern scene by roping in Ohio OG Dan Curtin for remix duties. Curtin beefs up the kick, dragging the track into a parallel Detroit synthspace, with detuned chords and luscious, dreamy sequences. V good.
