- Music Is Therapy EP
Moon Harbour | 26.02.2016
After an immediately essential EP on Moon Harbour back in July 2015, influential German selector, label boss, writer and taste making producer DJ T. is back on Matthias Tanzmann’s label in 2016 with a fresh new three tracker.
DJ T. is of course Thomas Koch, a pivotal figure on the German electronic scene since the turn of the Millennium. In his time he has done everything from wide ranging full lengths to adventurous mix CDs, was involved with launching agenda setting label Get Physical and is a DJ who can work a wide range of clubs and festivals thanks to his well-informed record collection and unique understanding of the dance floor. From house to minimal to tech he has done it all and then some.
Firing opener ‘Music Is Therapy’ is a busy track with metallic percussive hits underpinned by a looping and rubberized baseline. The drums are loose and bobbling and a filtered vocal adds a tribal vibe to the catchy groove. This one is sure to lock in the ‘floor and send them wild with playful cow bell tinkles and a massive breakdown.
The excellent ’Our House’ is more stripped back, with a slick bassline quickly tumbling down the scale and sucking you deep into the airy, frictionless groove. Toms and hi hats, edgy pads and more dark vox all add to the intensity of this most essential and tasty ’floor filler. Lastly, ‘You And Me’ featuring Joe Le Groove is a patient and slow evolving track that builds and builds to a frantic peak with crazy vocal calls, raved up melodies and a fat bottom end that cannot fail to make a big mark on dancers all over the world.
This is the latest and greatest chapter in the ongoing story of DJ T. and is sure to be another huge release for Moon Harbour, which is now into its 16th year.
