Where tiger skin once symbolized grandeur to British colonial culture, the likeminded alias of Berlin’s Dub Taylor has reigned in a similar grandeur for his diligent House stylings.
Back on track for Sydney based imprint Future Classic, dual digital/vinyl release ‘Lied’ symbolizes a strong vintage resurgence for a genre too often lost in the shadows of fashionable culture. While the track purveys some familiar hallmarks from the low-end leaning realms of Deep House, Taylor’s intricate key work and ornamented grooves play nostalgic wonder upon a sound that has been considerably replicated in a less uplifting manner of late.
Out on December 10th.
