Boomkat Product Review:
It's hard to think of anyone out there making house music as tactile and trippy right now as Benjamin Brunn. Following his quality Hello Ammmerika EP, the German analogue nut is back with another 4-track EP that finds him combining old-school Chi-town bump with a 21st century attention to detail and reverb-obsession. All four tracks are painted from a similar palette - sweetly phased chords, warm basslines and crisp drum hits, coaxed, if 'I Took Her Out For A 707''s title is anything to go by, from Roland's much-loved TR-707, a staple of the early house music that Dust so consciously and convincingly evokes. 'Neonlight Time' is the highlight, Virgo-style rolling toms anchoring an acutely psychedelic synthesizer motif, while the jazzy inflections of 'Don't Her Cry' and 'I Took Her Out' summon his mate Move D's classic Kunststoff. 'Pola' completes the package, punchy 4/4 sci-fi with some real emotion in its gut - they just don't make 'em like this any more, unless of course Brunn's at the controls. Ace.
