Voigtmann presents his latest output, following the release of his sublime debut album late last year, the Subsequent boss lands on Leeds’ latest label E-Numbers. Joining forces with label-head and long-standing Mint Club resident Bobby ODonnell, the pair provide a slick split EP.
Balancing a serene sophistication with playful attitude, Voigtmann reaches a satisfying sense of sonic equilibrium in the release’s A1. Accompanied by a complimentary title in ‘Gentlemen Take Polaroids’, the German’s soothing charm is at full effect.
Modest and meticulous note placement showcases the devastating effect of a spacious minimal aesthetic. Conversational call and response atmospheres gradually build between a neat acid line, meeting with deep sub-bass resting low in the mix.
Steadily unravelling, the varying low end makes for a more-ish listen, with crisp hats glistening over a slim bassline, textures gently rise and fall, guiding the arrangement through a transient seven minutes.
Label founder Bobby ODonnell shapes a defining tech house cut on the B side. Aptly titled ‘Harrison Street’ in homage to the location of Leeds’ legendary Mint Club, where ODonnell has held a 12-year residency, playing alongside a multitude of genre-defining artists.
The EP concludes with a remix of Voigtmann’s premiered track infused with tasteful E-Numbers flavour.
