Title: Different Places
Release Date: 09/09/14
During the year since his debut Tagtraum on Parquet Recordings, Zusammenklang has kept busy with a flurry of remixes as well as a single and EP on labels such as Der Turnbeutel and SOSO. Zusammenklang returns to SOSO for his sophomore LP, the aptly named Different Places, which highlights his wide-angle approach to dance music.
Although, Different Places is a House record at its core, maintaining an irresistible groove throughout its 11 tracks, it doesn’t hesitate to touch upon a variety of sounds. Playful melodies accompany harsh slabs of synth noise, and intense percussion, making Different Places an album with immense scope.
With Different Places, Zusammenklang has created a taut house record, whose gloss and shimmer is made all the more effective by its accompanying grit. It is rare to find an album able to balance these elements as confidently as Zusammenklang has on Different Places.
