Today, a track from 2006 by one of the more fantastic minimal DJs working today, Dominik Eulberg. I closed my set before Boys Noize with "Der Buchdrucker" for a reason-- it is a banging tech track at its most basic, but is perhaps one of the more subtle minimal tracks I have ever heard. With well-padded kicks going at 130-bpm, a weirdly effective yet strangely syncopated bass-line, hi-frequency washes, and nimbly crisp hi-hats, "Der Buchdrucker" is a sure winner with peaks and valleys galore. What's more, the melodic line that comes in halfway through the track is in the same league as the melodic line from Villalobos' "Dexter": hauntingly sad yet triumphant, spine-tingling at its best. The line ends the track after all other elements drop out, making it a memorable and perfect set-ender. One of my favorite Eulberg tracks, this is highly recommended stuff! On Traum.

Tomorrow, two tracks: a truly great tech-house remix of Fukkk Offf's "I'm A Freak," and a new tune from the dOP boys, favorites here at deep movements.
