Aaver comes out of Tartu, Estonia once having been a member of the
legendary DJ combo Neuronphase with Kalev K, and Tritse in the 90s.
Furthermore, he had also been a member of the indie group Bizarre
whose album Cafè De Flor (1996, Sally Cinnamon
Music) can be considered an outstanding album within the Estonian
underground scene with a blistering blend of dreamy guitars,
mystically sounding samples and dance-induced rhythms. It is still a
magic, time proven record after a 20 year span. By the way, Anti
Aaver played guitars over there and at 212 one hear some accidental
guitars to appear either. However, the main course is driven by his
club-related doings and the 9-notch outing hovers fairly up to the
highest standard. Skiddy synth layers, loosely yet succulently
gravitating house cadences, exquisite hisses, velvety and sultry
synthesised wrappings where you can feel a sturdy touch of (nu) jazz
influence (by the way, such a German combo as Jazzanova is highly
beloved in the Estonian house circles). Additionally to its
dance-induced angle you are also aroused by its emotive depth. The
course is changing stepwise thereby adding an extra value to the mix.
Another value is based on those prolonged synthesised peaks in the
last section of the tracks. In a word, it is a definite addition to
the list of the best albums in 2017. A must have stuff to a lover of
house music because of being a good example of how an interesting
house album should be produced Anno Domini 2017.
