Redenswart shows relative newcomer Jacob Stoy to be a producer with a keen ear for atmosphere, an eye for detail and a head full of ideas. The title track sets the tone, offering a powerfully melancholic stroll through deep dub house territory. There are twinkling melodies, too, but these play second fiddle to the impeccably atmospheric groove. “Hauswart” is a beautiful exercise in modern day ambience, while “Start” wisely puts a little more emphasis on positive chords and snappy drum machine beats. Best of all, though, is “Gegenwart”, a wide-eyed fusion of wonky downtempo house, P-funk sassiness and fluid electronica. Very impressive, all told.
