All round sterling team effort here, as labels Finale Sessions and Deeplabs join forces to drop four tracks of deep techno and house wonderment from Messrs Luke Hess and Motorcitysoul for the first in a series of joint ventures. Hess calls shotgun and lays down the template with the creeping dub techno stasis of "Come" which gradually unfurls into a refined, oscillating twilight journey through hissing Motor City classicism. "Unity" is a more sprawling, subaqueous effort incorporating the sounds of metallic welding and forming "to associate the unification of materials with the unification of dynamic sound". Frankfurt duo Motorcitysoul operate on a more percussive level, weaving typically driving rhythms in and around the thrusting syncopation on "Rosenau" for a classic deep house deviation. "Ostpark" is most unlike Motorcitysoul, craftily building from bouncing programming and vocal affectations into a deep burnt groover.
