Boomkat Product Review:
Dusseldorf's Lorenz Rhode makes an alluring cocktail of '80s-influenced electro-funk, electrohouse and all-out pop. His sound has as much in common with the sort of melodic, fashionably compressed fare you'd hear from Parisian types like Justice, SebastiAn or that scene's progenitors, Daft Punk, introducing itself with the supremely bit-smashed 'A Little Something', which really is pure, first class Ed Banger electronic schlock before 'Motor Cortex' itself digs the hooks in. This is quality electronic dancefloor pop from the outset, and all the various sub-genres Lorenz tackles are injected with a winning quirkiness: 'Tronic Matic' blends Italo retroism with playfully proged-up synth lines to great effect, while 'Kinky And The Grain' strips the instrumentation right down to a bare-bones sound that's pure, krautrock-inspired synthesizer fun. All this and four additional, highly serviceable additional mixes make for a very attractive package indeed.
