Thales Boutroumlis Goes ‘Perpetual’ on Poker Flat

Thales Boutroumlis represents the fresh new guard of tech house. The teenager from Cologne follows up his debut of last year on EIN2 with a two tracker for the venerable Poker Flat Recordings. For one so young, Boutroumlis shows a great deal of maturity in his productions. 

Title track ‘Perpetual‘ is an elegant and slinky tech house burner – a shuffling groove is matched with sly and crafty synth work, while the arrangement shows a strong sense of dance floor dynamics. 

Aether‘, produced alongsideĀ Tantum, heads in a deeper and darker direction – bringing out an edge and attitude that will go over big with the dancers. A bubbling acid bassline drives the drama, while pads give the track a sense of space, before dropping once more into the killer groove.
