After a brief digression into the realms of chart-savvy Electro House, the world was quite well persuaded that Wolfgang Gartner had returned to old habits. But in the latest instalment for his own Kindergarten Recordings, the LA based bronco takes another unexpected turn from his comfort zone.
Ditching the grinding chords and solid low-end chemistry for ‘Redline’, Gartner’s usual entourage is flatlined for a more melodically persuasive garment of Progressive induced chord play far closer to that of his European peers. But proving as masterful outside of his comfort zone, ‘Redline’ remains as energetic under the guise of this new studio ensemble and suggests a sudden yet persuasive turn to the softer shores of Electronic Dance Music from here onwards.
