Boomkat Product Review:
Superbly clean and classic sounding debut album from Panorama Bar resident and all round House music dynamo, Steffi. Since 2000 Steffi has run the ace Klakson label with Dexter, responsible for the era defining releases 'I Don't Care', and since last year she's branched out with the Dolly label, home to vital vinyl from Dexter, Jakob Korn and Tyrez. Her own productions have only emerged in the last couple of years, landing on Ostgut Ton and UQ, showcasing a supple, simple and highly effective style of deeper modern house music. All nine cuts on 'Yours & Mine' are exclusive to the album, featuring two superior vocal tracks with Virginia (vocalist for Steve Bug and Abe Duque a.o), the Detroit-tempered 'Yours' and the deliciously moody 'You Own My Mind', next to the beautifully toned square bass workout 'Arms', the purposeful late night jack of 'Manic Moods' and the synthual Berlin sehnsucht of 'Nightspacer'. It' surely no overstatement to say this is one of the most beautifully accomplished releases on Ostgut Ton, and a total must have for fans of sophisticated, classically-informed Berlin House music.
