Neelix - You're Under Control LP 2009

What is it?
Mysterious Hamburg techno-meister Neelix churns out exquisite little morsels of premium quality trance.

Why should you listen?
You should listen to a bit of Neelix at any time of the day but if you really need any convincing, pop it on the car stereo as you drive round late at night. It's the perfect urban soundtrack for a nocturnal cruise around Doncaster or perhaps Bury, Halifax or Wakefield. The production is crisp, pure and produces a lush soundscape rarely experienced outside of ambient music let alone in trance. You can imagine this was forged in some German bedsit by a geeky guy with glasses, crouching professorially over his techno gear, and it's all the more enjoyable for that image. The icing on the cake is the attention to detail with clicks, echoes, whispers and half heard samples drifting in and out of your consciousness. A work of genius.

What's it like?
It's like the soundtrack of the best dream you've ever had.

What's the best song?
"Contact" is a storming opener for the LP.

Who does it sound like?
X-Cabs, Vegas Soul, Chris Cowie. Being in the same breath as Hook says it all really.
