DESCRIPTION
It’s been a long time coming but finally we’re very pleased to welcome
back Nils Penner to the family fold.  His Munich/Berlin EP from 2 years
ago still sounds the business when dropped today and he’s clearly a
talented producer who puts quality before quantity when it comes to
releases.  As one half of Penner and Muder Nils has been responsible for
giving us such classics as Presence Of Another Man and their sublime remix
of Around Your Neck by Fiakun Team.  But he’s definitely a force to be
reckoned with when going solo too as his recent EP on Compost will attest
to.
Here on I Can Be, Nils continues where he left off creating a brilliant
electronic house track with his own unique style shining bright.  Loose,
jazzy drums keep things from getting too heavy whilst the vocal makes sure
this one keeps the classic vibes intact.
Flipping over we have Pittsburgh Track Authority delivering their remix of
I Can Be, where things get toughened up, stripped to the core and force-
fed more steroids than is strictly healthy.  Jacked up funky techno is the
end result, but this is deep and rolling techno with a bounce in it’s step
and a cheeky glint in it’s eye. Simply adorable if you ask us.
Finally, things close out with State Of Mind, a modern day torch-song for
the lonely, a hymn for the lost generation, or simply a deep and moody
tale of lost nights on the dancefloor and lost marbles the next morning.
