September seems to be the month for Stefan Goldmann to drop the benchmark tunes: 2006 was all about “Sleepy Hollow", 2007 went “Lunatic Fringe” - and it’s no surprise “Radiant Grace” hits the streets in that same timeslot. This track proves there actually is a next level of development after minimal and the new deep house movement. An irresistible chord figure is put up against a growing string section, all culminating after minutes of build up in a synth-fuelled peak - it stands out as much in a late night house set as in a Sunday morning afterhours workout. There has rarely ever been so much tension in such an effortlessly deep piece of music - probably house music’s most innovative offering this summer and certainly one of the most memorable tunes around. “Prefecture” is as future forward - a skippy chord figure sets the groove while sharp tones set the mood. A warm bassline in one of the most dynamic environments a bassline can be put in.
