Euphoric throwback to early 90s electronica. Rising Sun (Steffen Laschinski) is a producer based in Berlin with an extensive back catalogue and this release comes to us from Fauxpas Musik, a celebrated Berlin label. It’s a nice mix of beat-driven and spacey ambient tracks—dreamy, immersive music still propelled by a certain energy. I can’t recommend this enough. |
