Hamburg’s Mirau label operator Stephan Lorenz has taken Arp Aubert on a solo trek. He carries the Aubertian idea further along that happy, winding trail that allows music to be produced in the same stride it comes to mind in – on the moment’s impulse, without a fixed destination in sight. The grooving tracks collected on his wanderings may differ, but they all share the warm aesthetic of Lorenz’s careful handling. Melodious echo-waves float over rhythmized audio fragments, while shuffling house beats surge their way through the arrangements.
Arp Aubert clambers up the next ridge and takes in the view, in good spirits – music is giving him a free reign.
