After a collaborative album with Johannes Albert on Frank Music, an original track on Uncanny Valley and a remix for Omar Santis on Phonica’s sublabel Karakul Iron Curtis is back with some further original material on Manchester-based label Hudd Traxx. But the Berliner does not only ready one EP but two, which go by the name of Total Art Of Living Part 1 & 2. Altogether Iron Curtis provides ten tracks with his signature sound reflecting his preference for (deep) House Music. The A1 and opening track of the first part Everything’s Alright contains everything, that makes the music, the genre, House Music inescapable. Various deep and partly hypnotic synths snuggle up against each other, leave space for solo piano chords and are driven by a 808 influenced bass line with few vocals-snippets, which altogether turn the tune to an in instant (dancefloor) classic. Again Iron Curtis delivers music that outlives the present but could be made at any point in modern times, yet has the gift of sounding always relevant.
Iron Curtis’ Total Art Of Living – Part 1 will be released on Hudd Traxx on September 11th.
