Ähnlich wie bei tuff city kids selbst. geht es bei -adoldesscent- nicht um eine bestimmte stilrichtung oder einen sound. vielmehr ist es der ansatz der verschmelzung. und damit ist endlich der nachweis erbracht. dass die verschiedenen ecken des elektronischen musikspektrums wesentlich mehr gemeinsam haben. als man gemeinhin vermuten würde. aber was noch viel wichtiger ist und am ende mehr zählt als all das: es zaubert ein lächeln aufs gesicht!

opener ppppp (diva mix) is a truly compelling house track with an effortlessly groovy feel. disco fried stabs and smooth wood block hits that glide the thing along. it is party starting yet subtle. big yet clever and has some firing vocal samples to really set the track alight. the just as essential drunken diva mix is a rework that has playful drums dropping in and out. bigger stabs and more cut up energy thanks to lots of careful tweaks. it is freewheeling and charming and cannot fail to make you move. lastly. an instrumental version is supplied for purely physical dance floor deployment. and is sure to be devastating.
