Smooth is warm, deep, and superb. This EP is a wonder-piece and another milestone on Smooth's evolutionary journey through electronica. I'm hoping Smooth circles around this milestone for many more releases, as I think he's found the sweet spot in dub techno.
Favorite track: Nachtwerk.
What happens if Clubsounds meets Dubsounds? "Dubwärts" is a new EP by Smooth and the first step into a new direction of sound which represents an unique fusion between Dubtechno, Progressive and Clubsounds. Primary elements on this release are the concinnity of sounds, the spheric epos and deep flow of all tracks, supported by pumping beats. The mission is to continue the journey to the roots of Dubtechno on future releases.
Rather than answering why do I love this album, I am gonna offer another question. Why don't you own it already? This is Dub Techno for the connoisseur. This is a piece of class music. I see it as a tribute to the bootlegs from back when vinyl was all there was. Ahh, times do change. Go ahead and download it, the music's boss. Bethelina_DJ
You kind of know where this is going but that's more than ok because the vibe tells a story and ticks the boxes of gratifying summer night ambiance. It opens with feelings of a humid storm moving into a late night road trip looking for a Motel and bar.... well, in my imagination xxx Liza Nicklin
