Austrian imprint Tiefparterre continues to set itself apart with downtempo releases that skirt the line between experimental electronic and house vibes. It's a sound specially curated by the label and purposefully leans toward the underground, a mission reflected in a namesake that translates from German to "basement". At the end of 2014 Sonny Blake graced the outlet with his Perception EP, which spanned a total of eight tracks including six originals and two remixes. Some works dipped down into slow reveries that plodded on in cinematic beauty; others ramped up to a galloping 131 BPM for a quickstep all clubgoers would love.
As a followup to Perception, Sonny Blake has decided to put a free down in the form of his new track "City Lights". Shimmering melodies pervade the work, supported by an ever-present, strobing mid, which allows the track to articulate themes from both dance and electronica in one smooth phrase. Download the exclusive track below, only from Sonny Blake, Tiefparterre, and EARMILK.
