The Stars EP is a message from the outer 8-bit boundaries of the
hulaverse. It comes towards you in a proper Chiptune Rave manner: Dance!
Switzerland, based producer, dj and sound designer Daniel Sommer aka
Somtek or Schnauz has built himself a reputation as an uncompromising
master of the dancefloors somewhere between jungle, breakcore, rave and
With the Stars EP, he demonstrates what this means from a glossy, shiny and bleepy point of view: Neon opens up as a bouncy jungle stepper with classic chiptune sounds. Only shortly after, you’ll find youself raving to an arena slammer. Machine reduces the tempo to the groove of a deep oldschool house mover with a cut-up drum break twist. The first digital only track, Skit, is a one shot recording of a live studio session. It takes you way back the your jump’n’run mode. DreamBit comes in 3D and 140bpm. With a light halftime groove, this IDMesque track brings sunshine into the dark. Finally, WhutWhut takes another shot at the hi-speed realm: once more, cut up breaks fill the space between bleeping old school synth sounds, giving way to a glimpse of a timeless moment, only to take right back off towards the sky.
