The Berghain / Panorama Bar resident launches his new label with four techno tools.
Faith Beat's musical mission statement is "subtlety, nuance and groove with a focus on meticulously crafted club tools." Elliott's music, whether as a DJ or producer, has always blurred the line between house and techno, often combining the groove of house music and the tense linear structure of techno. His productions reflect his DJing experience—you can imagine him breezing through these tracks with ease, hours into a long set in his signature, fast mixing style. The only moment that offers something a little different is "The Introduction," which (as the name suggests) would be a great opener or mid-set breather, with stripped-back percussion and trippy, organic hardware sounds. The rest will probably get plenty of club play, but they could've used more of that same inspiration.
