Boomkat Product Review:
After a series of warmly recieved releases for Styrax, Shoreless and Piece Communications this year, Quantec's Sven Schienhammer arrives at his second full length album in fine form. Opener 'Absolute Level' shows an expansion of his sound with a swirling Detroit/Berlin mixture reminding us of a dubbier Urban Tribe, before 'Deep Rooted' pays dues to the classic 90's house structures of Chez Damier and Maurizio etc. 'Profound experiences' works out skanking conga patterns, while 'Obstacles' shapes metallic shimmering dub chord licks inna 2562 style and 'Magic Potion' will appeal to fans of Terre Thaemlitz's more broken-rolling house productions as DJ Sprinkles. The impressive 'Plateau' closes the set with a final piece of pulsing ambience to melt the heads of anyone who bought the Meanwhile releases last year.
