The brand new Sonarpilot album 3.0 is released today, eight tracks of quality underground deep/tech house from the Sonarpilot Audio master...
For his third album, simply titled 3.0, producer Michael Moppert, a.k.a. Sonarpilot presents a stripped back, eight track collection of brand new deep/tech house.
From the synth driven opener, the Joy Orbison-esque Ghosts to cuts like Cold Shuffle, Calle Verde and Is It My House, Sonarpilot provides us with his trademark techy stabs, revolving basslines, lush textures and strong melodies.
3.0 picks up speed with Orbiter, a track with shimmering, reversed keys and a infectious, rolling techno groove fans of Kirk Degiorgio would likely check for. Ship Of Clay touches down in Detroit with emotional strings and washing hi hats before finally landing in Africa with rural chants and echoy, tribal tones. After the relaxed interlude of One Ten the album finishes with Machine, rhythmically stark and with a definite nod to Kraftwerk, the track leads out with rolling dub breakbeats, deep subs,and moody, distorted dub effects.
“My first two albums - 'Mothership' and 'Radar' - were were both massive productions, double albums with running times of well over two hours” explains Michael... “3.0 is much more compact, straight to the point if you will. It feels like the quintessence of what I learned from my earlier productions and Martin 'Atjazz’ Iveson's slick mastering has added an extra tight, hypnotic edge”.
