Time for another successful introduction to the OFF roster. Meet the spirit of Chi Thanh, a Berlin based multi talented beat wizard who brings us an outstanding debut EP.
“Let’s Play“ starts out with infectious acoustic guitars that get in groove with a driving yet deep beat and bass combo. The vocal and lyrics encourage us to “Play The Game“ while you ‘lose your brain´ in a returning club environment.
“I Like The Way“ mixes blues-steel guitars with “Johnny Cash“ – style
vocals,adding a powerful bassline that does its thing after the breakdown while with “Heat“ Chi Thanh shows a more club-oriented instrumental side where the focus lies on an infectious organ bass line coupled with vibey synths and a classic house beat. Organic, acoustic real instruments, guitars, psychedelic 60s vibes meet Berlin Deep House Club Beats.
On the remix front we first have Mat.Joe, an OFF regular act, who render a proper bouncy groovy deep house version of “Let’s Play” and Hive’s own swiss knives Animal Trainer who craft a more trippy driving techy landscape for the track completing an amazing package.
