Recently released via Dessous Recordings is Max Heesens latest outing under his Langenberg-moniker, a three track 12" that's available as limited vinyl issue these days. Although we're not able to unveal any track names here as our promo copy is a rare whitelabel test press we're keen to stress that, focusing on audible information only, Langenbergs release is way more than a solid closing on Dessous' 2012 12" circuit as it still features his immanent dubby influences but sees him emphasizing on the DeepHouse aspects of electronic dance music more than on his previous releases. Whilst the long A-side even carves out a repetitive but still driving piano line, B1 comes along as a thud, saturated, stripped down roller with a dubbed out feel, intimate chords and a well-memorable male vocal sample ("You know anything can happen") that's about to work late night floors to the ecstatic max. Closing things with B2 Langenberg finally embraces the warm depth of a classic lovers tune, caters secutive piano chords as well as slightly uplifting stabs, loosely connecting musically those late 90s days when Dessous Recordings was established - but don't get this wrong, there's nothing dated or frumpy about this tune, more a kind of timeless vibe that simply feels good and well familiar.
