With Naif, veteran German producer Efdemin has become the latest producer to release a set that gleefully blurs the boundaries between an original album and a DJ mix. You see, Naif not only includes 10 previously unheard solo tracks and collaborations from the man himself, but also 19 unreleased exclusives from friends and associates, including Margaret Dygas, Steve Bicknell, Tobias and Gunnar Haslam. As you might expect, it's a fast-paced and thrill-packed journey, with Efdemin sashaying between trippy ambient cuts before working his way through an impressively atmospheric and occasionally forthright selection of club-ready techno cuts. These naturally vary in style and intensity, from forthright percussive intensity and early morning creepiness, to gently melodious workouts, bleep-rich shufflers and far-sighted techno futurism.
