PREMIERE: Tilman – Work It [Klamauk]

German deep house label Klamauk‘s tenth and latest release comes from the hands of bossman Tilman (who contributes his second EP to the imprint).  While he’s been recently busy hustling out dope edits on his other project, Fine, it seems the Mainz man found some time to cook up some sample-driven deep house jams for the Let’s Work It Out EP.  The four track affair balances nicely between bright and playful cuts (“Sophisticated” and our premiere, “Work It”) and darker, moodier affairs (“Moments, “If I Could See You Sometimes”). Anyway, let’s check out our premiere for the release.

In the A1 slot is “Work It”, the track most closely aligned in title to the EP. It’s a solid number that pays tribute to French disco house via looping disco guitar chords and 909 beats. The samples themselves endure some clever length changes and filter-work (like any good French affair!) to accentuate the dancefloor pleasure, building and revealing to create variation and tension. The track could honestly fit right in with the beefed-up edit style of Fine, but sits nicely in this package of sample-based house joints.

All in all, another sweet outing for the eccentric label. Record hits in a few weeks, preorder here.
