Comment: Anti 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.
