German producer, Hutenberger, steps up to the plate for Lauter.records with his latest EP, Theory Of Broken Dreams. Composed of three original tracks, plus two additional remixes by Katie Drover & Subliime for a perfectly curated deep tech mix. Each original track on this EP features a deep vibe and dark sound; predominately holding a lot of density. Contrasting from the originals, both remixes generate a clean and harmonic energy, complimenting one another perfectly.
Hutenberger kicks off the 5 track EP with Exit The Shell (original mix); coming out strong with an infectious baseline and spacey synths. Jumping to track 3 with Success Undefined, the base slowly builds before drawn out synths break the beat leaving space for atmospheric energy to take hold. Subliime then comes in with his remix to add even more energy to it, giving it that groovy twist to get your foot tapping. What a pleasure this one will be one the dance floor! Hutenberger wraps up with the last track titled Reality Kick featuring a climaxing, heavy beat before drawing to a sharp close.
Welcoming Katie Drover to the Lauter Records family with the shiny new remix to Hutenberger’s original, Exit The Shell. Featuring as a premiere on the EP, this remix has a solid introduction with a lot of presence, giving notice that in the next few minutes one will experience the expansion of their own introspection. The structure is determined by some break beats which sustain the continuous energy, whilst it is enveloped by a deep and sentimental conversation, represented by pads with crystalline sounds. The bass line has an exquisite simplicity that features a similar tempo to a heart beat. Simultaneously, more unique sound is generated to create a twisted, dark sequence before organic elements release the tension for a warm lightness. Finding the right records to move the dance floor is one thing but giving audiences something to take away from the experience is quite another. Katie Drover knows how to take people to that next level, injecting her performances with a captivating energy and passion. With a natural flair for blending a divergent array of sounds into one seamless flow, Drover’s impact was instantaneous.
Lauter Records is well known for curating intricate mixes with well thought out remixes and this was no exception. Encompassing the full breadth of the house genre – from minimal house to deep tech, and electro with a groovy twist. A pleasure to listen to and a fundamental piece worth adding to your collection!
