Premiere: Tcb – Uptown Slice – House Is Ok
Chris Beiswenger was formally one half of the Arto Mwambe duo. Now going it alone as The Citizens Band, the Frankfurt based producer has put together a dreamlike EP of modular, mid paced techno ballads, walking a path somewhere between the 80s innovation of fellow German Manuel Göttsching and the more peaceful moments of Detroit future soul. Today's premiere, Uptown Slice, never loses it's warm poise, the soaring synths carrying gentle, arping melodies ever higher to a point of understated euphoria. Dead nice it is, like.
The Rather Happy Songs EP Uptown Slice is drawn from is available from November 16th from the House is OK label.
