New EP ‘Mera’ by Jonathan Kasper via Ouïe label

Jonathan Kaspar has been making moves in dance music for some years, releasing on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Objektivity, Pets Recordings ,and Kompakt’s KX.

Here, the Cologne-based DJ and producer provides three tracks that serve as a reminder that dance music doesn’t have to be one dimensional.

Opener ‘Mera’ starts out along a shuffling, groove-heavy path before various sound elements creep in, culminating with a hummed vocal full of mystery and magic. The track appears here in two versions, with the ‘Strip Down’ getting deeper into the drums for a full rhythm-frenzy workout.

Both tracks are perfect sunrise music, as is ‘Weiss’. Although ostensibly having more of a straight-up dancefloor approach, the track’s low slung groove slowly reveals itself over its nine minutes into a spaced out cosmic journey.
