Mainz-based DJ and producer Tilman has spent the past decade gracing keen ears with his unique take on house. With releases on taste-making labels like Shall Not Fade and Quality Vibe, as well as running his own Fine imprint alongside Johannes Albert, he’s cemented himself as a promising presence in the future of house.
He commences his next chapter with the launch of a second imprint, Pleasant Systems. For the label’s inaugural release, Tilman calls on friends and frequent collaborators Will Buck and Rhodes & Brown to join him for a four-track gaze into the vintage sounds of house music.
Rounding off the Adventures EP is ‘Lovin’’, a silky deep house cut that wouldn’t feel out of place in a plush 80s lounge. He channels feelings of nostalgia hrough off-kilter organic percussion, twinkling resonant tones, a g-funk moog style bass and 80s tinged synth chords, providing a harmonious conclusion that perfectly epitomises the label’s mission.
The Adventures EP is available on vinyl. You can grab a digital copy from 9 July.
