Daniel Steinberg prepares to unveil his debut artist album ‘Shut Up’ on Front Room Recordings with three eloquent cuts from the project, drawing on vintage and tropical elements to bring soul, warmth and the complete unexpected to modern house music.
Title track ‘Shut Up’ is an entangled backdrop of resonant percussion grooves, softly lifted and driven forwards the hypnotic, cynical vocals and unfolding to reveal a myriad of aberrant soundscapes.
Steinberg’s ‘On The Train’ is a hungry medley of rhythm charged with vintage singing and a slapstick tone, an ebbing energy ball that charms with its original approach.
Guided by fluent beats, tender melodies and low spoken vocals, ‘Move Your Body’ resonates with a powerful sensuality, sliced and diced into a potent climax.
A veritable chameleon of Berlin’s musical landscape since he first started producing his colourful vision of house and techno back in 1994, a time when Berlin’s underground throbbed with minimal beats and stripped down house, Daniel Steinberg was already thriving outside this box, experimenting with exotic world samples and having fun fusing elements together to make a cohesive whole that was always greater than the sum of its parts.
The forthcoming LP reaches into the concreted shadows and caverns and emerges with something shimmering with real heart and feeling; a small rebellion against the all too often formulaic electronic music of the digital age, the uninspired and the generic.
‘Shut Up’ Daniel Steinberg’s debut album will be released on double vinyl and digital on Jan 24th 2010 on Front Room Recordings.
