In­nervi­sions

Fif­teen years into a highly ac­com­plished ca­reer, Kris­tian Beyer and Frank Wiede­mann – aka Âme – fi­nally re­lease their de­but full length al­bum. The record sees the duo delv­ing into the dis­cern­ing, hyp­notic, pol­ished deep house sound that’s be­come their in­stantly recog­nis­able hall­mark. Spine-tin­gling synths, jan­gling melodies, grum­bling basslines, elon­gated pads and thud­ding drums are the ba­sis of this en­er­getic but typ­i­cally deep and un­der­ground record. From vo­cal tracks to ’70s-in­spired Ger­man pro­gres­sive tracks and onto ex­per­i­men­tal in­stru­men­tals, stripped-back am­bi­ence and club-ready rhyth­mic as­saults, Âme de­liver an ex­pan­sive sound­scape that builds through­out. Highly im­mer­sive, the rhyth­mi­cally fluid bot­tom end sucks you far into the Ger­mans’ sub­ter­ranean world. How­ever, for all its ex­per­i­men­tal­ism and de­sire to wan­der the un­trod­den path, Dream

House still has plenty of epic, emo­tive mo­ments – the trade­mark of Âme’s widely ac­claimed club per­for­mances. A bril­liant de­but that cap­tures the wealth of their tal­ent. Tom Jones
