Review: Berlin's Geoff Kirkwood seems to be on a steady path to underground stardom, and this latest EP for Glasgow's legendary Optimo Trax is further proof of this dude's charisma behind the mixing desk. Just as a footnote, we'd like to add that he's appeared on everything from Hivern Discs to ESP Institute and even the excellent Correspondant - the label through which he released his first album - so you might want to check his entire catalogue pretty sharpish before it all starts going for mega bucks in the near future. Man Power is the alias, and "Sonic Pressure" is the A-side to this rocking two-tracker; a steady, charging house groove is lifted into hyperspace by all sorts of polyrhythmic melodies circling the mix like merry-go-round, heading into some pretty unexpected territories by the the time we reach the second chorus. The flip, "HDS", is a vintage house stomper, filled with half-breaks to take this tune from 2D to 3D, not to mention that banging bass pouncing slowly beneath it all. Recommended!
