Here's catnip for a certain dance music type: Highly regarded Robert-Johnson resident Gerd Janson and Dutch bastion Rush Hour teaming up for a compilation of "ambient-not-ambient" tracks from names likes Roman Flügel, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Tensnake. The label has released a one-sided sampler with arguably the biggest name of all—Âme. The Berlin duo offer up a taste of what we might be able to expect from the vague description, laying out a patient melody-drenched composition that sounds a bit like one of the opening tracks from the Innervisions-helmed The Grandfather Paradox. The highly ordered base allows for things to get weird on top. It's reminiscent of Stefan Goldmann's recent pitch-bending experiments, but with a poppier sheen. (This is Âme after all.) If the rest of the compilation is this good, we have a lot to look forward to.
