Panorama Bar 04


Compiled by Nick Höppner, the 12-Inch sampler for “Panorama Bar 04” mix CD perfectly illustrates both the club’s sound and Höppner’s DJ style. All four previously unreleased exclusive tracks are stand out productions selected by Nick: Canadian ex-pat The Mole immediately sets the groove with the funky bassline of “Hippy Speedball”. The track combines a classic deepness with upfront experimental percussion. Steffi’s Klakson collaborator Dexter turns up the bass drum and melodies on “X7D” for an uplifting detroitish house cut straight out of the Netherlands. Englishman Matthew Styles adds some deep techno feelings to the 12” with his production “Liquid Sky”. He combines a dubbed out sound with a vocal sample that keeps it well within the house mood of the EP. The Jon McMillion track “T-Station”, which also opens Nick Höppner’s “Panorama Bar 04” mix CD, takes it even deeper; a new kind of a smooth roller with half whispered male vocals and a killer distorted synthline. McMillion puts Seattle firmly on the map, topping off a perfectly varied mini sampler.
