Damiano von Erckert - In Case You Don't Know What To PlayLABEL: AVA.Records

As an album title, In Case You Don't Know What To Play is rather good. We suspect that Damiano von Erckert had his tongue firmly pressed against the inside of his cheek when he came up with it, but it somehow seems fitting. You see, the album - the producer's third solo full-length excursion - contains a range of quirky, off-kilter, sample-heavy cuts that suit a variety of moods and situations. While his roots are in groovy and off-kilter deep house, the album's 10 tracks cheekily touch on a myriad of styles and sounds, from wonky Afro-house, broken beat and Balearic disco, to stomping, Terrence Parker style piano anthems and stripped-back jazz-house.
