Currently enjoying the summer of his life with killer dispatches on Objektivity and KX, Beatport top 5 positions and everyone from Damian Lazarus to Laurent Garnier firing up festivals with his unique jams, Germany’s Jonathan Kaspar returns to Pets with three more supreme slices of bass-laced underground science.

‘Paradise’ lives up to its name with its deft counterplay of grizzly electrified bass and rising uplifting chords. A perfect contrast of shades punctuated by a hypnotic one-word vocal sample, if this is paradise then we’re investing in some serious real estate and moving there as soon as possible.

‘Cicatrice’ wears its dancefloor scars with pride as an unruly fusion of bass textures writhe and fuse beneath a loose-limbed light-footed jack. Rough round the edges and unabashed in its darkside steps, it’s the sound of techno getting lean on low end… And loving it.

Finally Jonathan invites us to get a little ‘Mellow’. A place where the elastic, warped-out bass entangles us in a strange hypnotic state only to wake us again as it stretches back in our faces… It’s an offer we can’t refuse.

Fine-tuning a sound that fits Pets perfectly but also lives in a world of its own yet froths over into so many different corners of the dance, Jonathan Kaspar is absolutely smashing it on a unique level here. Paradise found.
