Label: Pampa records Released: 13th February 2013
After a two year absence the king of microhouse has returned as Rajko ‘Isolée’ Müller released his new ‘Allowance’ EP on Pampa Records just before Valentines Day. Needless to say as it’s our single of the week but the German’s latest effort has had us all buzzing around the office with the German’s well thought out melodies intertwining perfectly with sparse human interjections. The title track ‘Allowance’ leads he way in terms of quality finishing with its somewhat north African vibes but its supporting numbers are almost equally impressive as things get funkier during ‘Wobble’ before settling down again into smmoth sonar-laden piano to round off in trademark smoothness.
Simple but complex, play this to anyone who doubts the merits of minimal house and prepare for them to be astounded by the beautiful gentleness of the music inside of this EP. Not to be missed, this is the best minimal house EP in a very, very long time.
