A melodic progressive record that shoots unashamedly (and successfully) for the upbeat emotions and joyful trance vibes. 'Rise Up' goes on all sorts of dramatic structural adventures, though most importantly, it does it all with a big grin on its face.
I can still remember hearing 'Part One' of this series way back in 1996. Nearly 20 years on and Herbert is still going strong! Granted, this may be his first release under this particular moniker, for some eight years, but as always his sense of fun, ingenuity and creativity prevails. Hence this playful mix of loopy, hypnotic, weirdness, deep soulful 4/4 and twisted acidic house. Yes sir!
"Badass... heard it in 'Chestcast Vol.6' and had to get this tune. So aggressive, with a cool vibe."
In its original format, ‘Clusters’ is an excellent, edgy, piano–led off-beat groove — and Rivet’s remix is also very impressive. Adding a stepping rhythm and garbled foreign language samples, he turns it into a deft dancefloor groove.
