Simon Weiss is taking over fast and smooth. His track 'Amsterdam Wave' on Rush Hour's Amsterdam All-Stars compilation last year was a brief introduction.His Rush Hour follow up, a full 12" titled 'Wave Ep' has just hit the shelves and is getting great feedback. Now Simon Weiss readies for a three out of three with a brand new 10".
Drawing inspiration from the famous 1920's silent film Metropolis. Simon Weiss, together with a photographer and a graphic designer, set out to bring their view on this dystopial setting. Bringing the three different art forms together will produce a final result that is impressive in every sense of the word. By focussing on being independent and self-sufficient Simon Weiss and his companions created utmost honest work.
Whilst the inspiration might be dark and sad, the music doesn't follow this same pattern throughout each of the four tracks in the package. A sparkle of hope is felt whilst listening to the intro; a longing vocal sample accompanied by a suiting drum pattern. Moving on 'Tomorrow' brings out more of this same emotion. It's smooth, sexy at times. Building suspense o so slowly. The crafty 'Worromot' really packs the punch. A drum heavy, oldschool sounding track, that evolves slowly into a dancefloor bomb. The outro gives you the feeling that there are good things to come. And to be honest, with this Amsterdam talent in our midst, we are quite sure there are so many good things to come!
