12" Vinyl D
DJ Balaton, a.k.a. Ninze
DJ Balaton, a.k.a. Ninze of Leipzig Ketapop slow house fame, ventures into exceptionally flowy, analog House music on "Blauer Montag". It sounds familiar and obscure, like walking into a hotel for the first time, but feeling like you had maybe been there before. The first single "C'est tout" takes you straight to the lounge, while the hip-hop downtempo hymn "Life So Sweet" brings you to a bar by the pool. "Tascam Dub" feels eerie like an unknown sun setting in a foreign place, harboring excitement for what nighttime will look like. The final track is for dancing without caring for titles, time and place.
The EP is like a perfect day off, playing truant Ferries Bueller-Style - "Blauer Montag" (literally meaning Blue Monday) referring to the craft worker tradition of taking Mondays off
