TILMAN - UNITED SCRIPTS EP** [Orange Vinyl + Printed Full Sleeve !!
Tilman is back again on the Shall Not Fade Seasons Series imprint. The German producer, who specialises in pumping, jazz-inflected house, brings the positivity of his personality into his music - ‘United Scripts’, his longest release yet, has the sweet sounds of summer interwoven throughout. The EP sees him moving away from sample-heavy house, although the first track ‘Relax Yourself’ is still a sample-driven house piece that is classic Tilman. In contrast, ‘By All Means’ beautifully showcases his abilities as an instrumentalist - sublime keys that are interspersed with singer Louisa Laos’ R&B vocals. It’s the first time Tilman has worked with a singer, and a standout moment in the record, a song with potential beyond the club. ‘Beauty In The Dark’ uses peaceful flute stabs to contrast with a real deep bassline; somewhat dreamy, but still a danceable roller. The A-side closes with ‘Sound Issue 84’, definitely another dance tool, a tight hi-hat contrasted with dubbed out chords that hypnotise.
