Dreamtrak – Contemporary

On ”Contemporary”, a mildly sawish synth lead expands and contracts over an otherwise simplistic setting framed by a deep submerged bass and a basic drum pattern; a style widely practiced by mid-00 electronic music producers Booka Shade, DJ T.Ellen Allien and Berlin labels Get Physical and BPitch Control. So while “Contemporary” might be a poorly chosen name and doesn’t score high marks for innovation, it’s no easy task to turn a single synth lead into a dynamic, epochal groove. Yet, Dreamtrak does exactly that and shapes the sweet sound of nostalgia into a mesmeric physical monster. And while “Mandarine Girl” may well be its most obvious specter, “Contemporary” actually comes off as rather fresh sounding with all the poorly mimicked Disclosure sound-alikes flooding current dance music.
