The tracks on "Heavy Weights" really keep their promise.
Each song has its own little world with plenty of room and its own life. And Glander takes a lot of time for these songs. The length of them seems to be unusual at the first glance but soon you'll understand that this is part of their secret.
The tracks are captivating, some even hyptnotising. Hearing them, you will move your feet unconsciously. But you cannot make out their style: There are four fourths, of course, but they are too bassy and dark to be House - and too smooth for being Techno.
Nevertheless, it doesn't matter: The tracks will take you on a dive cruise, each of them has its own little valley and its own moon. So: Take your time.

Glander from Berlin worked on his music since 1992.
Long time his style has a minimalistic touch: a mix of 4/4 stumblebeats and little weird sounds.
You can listen to such tracks on his debut "plak&play", which was released in 1999 on plakim rec.
In the last years his sound became slower, deeper and warmer. In these tracks he is always looking for "the bass".

What a release !.
Nice, deep, chilled out sound.
The longer they go, the deeper they get. I want to be there, when they bump this at a party.
Sweetness. And a nice cover too.
