AEON continue their phenomenal start to the year with an EP from label founder Alex Niggemann.
It’s quite fresh to see that some famous artists seem to put out more Italo House kinda stuff these days-just like ‘Love Music People’. The Main Mix is a pounding deep bass Nu Disco drum driven affair, but it’s all about Lauer’s fantastic re-freak, that really is another development of his already very high standard remixes and productions of late. As well as performing and producing under his Tuff City Kids alias alongside Gerd Janson, Lauer has released music on Running Back, Futureboogie Recordings, Live At Robert Johnson and Permanent Vacation. On his take, he stamps his unmistakable sound on it with light, uplifting synths and adding a deep groove to the bass. On closing track ‘Rise Of The Machines’ the Italo influence shines through once again with its driving bassline, weighty drums, bubbling synths, mechanical elements and a hint of cowbell.
