DT881 – Reboot

Share

For the past decade and a half, Reboot has been dropping his raw, hypnotic and rhythmic house grooves on some of the most reputed imprints in the game, namely the likes of Sven Vath’s Cocoon Recordings, Luciano’s Cadenza, Ricardo Villalobos’ Sei Es Drum, Pleasure Zone, Rawax and of course Cécille where he returns here following 2022’s ‘Bako’ EP. Reboot’s back catalogue makes his indelible mark on this territory undeniable and his musical story continues to leave further tracks here with his latest works.

Reboot makes a welcome return to Cécille this July with his three-track ‘Red House’ EP, featuring the German artist’s signature groove-driven percussive style. ‘Ready To Flow’ opens and immediately thrusts us into Reboot’s trademark swinging rhythm section and smoothly refined low-end drive, further fuelled by dubbed out resonant flutters, choppy voices and tension-building sweeps. ‘Alicat’ follows next and embraces a deeper aesthetic, fusing together hazy atmospherics, bumpy bass stabs, and loose organic drums with bubbling synths, chanting voices and saxophone licks. Lastly title-track ‘Red House’ rounds out the release, further capturing the essence of Reboot’s hallmark style via intertwined sample chops, pulsating subs and skippy percussion, all of which are intricately processed and automated to create a dynamic dance floor workout.

Today, he joins us on the podcast for the first time. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words

Just some classy house vibes to get your juices going

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

As they all say, it’s hard to choose one. When it comes to longevity, Mendo – Old School is definitely the one.
Even after more than a decade, the track still tears up the dance floor.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

A pinch of sex, two spoonfuls of funk, and of course, butter. Everything tastes better with butter.

Tell us about your next EP?

Next up is a 3 Track EP with my Cécille family. This is my absolute favorite house label and on top also my closest friends. This year, I’ve mostly released more minimal and underground tracks so far. But everyone who knows me, knows I also love house and loopy techno house, so this release will be more upbeat. I hope people enjoy it.

What have you got coming up?

This year has been a really busy one so far. Aside EP`s on “Curtea Veche” and “Into the Wizards Sleeve”, I just released an electro Album with David Gtronic. Next is my release on Cécille Records, followed by an EP on Cadenza, another album in September, and various releases and remixes on friendly labels. Of course I am also touring and currently preparing a new LiveAct. Stay tuned

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

You can’t go back and change the beginning. But you can start where you are and change the end!
