Boomkat Product Review:
Impeccably slunky, slow and sexy ambient dance turns from Philipp Otterbach, an OG Salon Des Amateurs resident and co-organizer of the Substance club nights with Vladimir Ivkovic
Drawing upon decades of experience DJing between Düsseldorf and Berlin, Otterbach paints a singular worldview of dance music in ‘The Rest Is Bliss’ for Amsterdam’s Knekelhuis. Teasing the senses with fragrant traces of exotica in his opening ‘Interlude’, the trip soon becomes more ambiguously seductive/menacing with the hard-to-resist, insectoid syncopation and sci-fi sound design of ‘Dark Side of the Møn’ - those subs are proper! - before ‘The Weak Song’ turns another sharp corner into a strange ambient acidic dramaturgy pairing an enigmatic, lamenting female vocal with yearning 303 plongs and offworld electronics to totally beguiling degrees. Following this slow, mazy logic, the two parts of ‘The Roamer’ see us out in low key, shadowy style with thicc subs and stealthy, noirish gestures worthy of Bohren Und Der Club of Gore or Portishead in the first part precipitating a deliciously glassy, sparse closer recalling moments of Diego Herera’s ace SK U Kno LP.
