Downtown (Single)
Tom Appl.

Release cover


Karmaloft Music keeps up the summer pace with a new release from Munich-based DJ and sound engineer Tom Appl. Tom's career as a DJ dates back to the early '90s with the sounds of tech, deep, and melody-infused house music. As a producer he has previously created productions and remixes under the pseudonym Fruitroom. Two originals, Downtown and Klichi, make up his new effort with remixes from Bes & Meret, Enne, Matthias Freudmann, and Christos Fourkis.Tom Appl combines old world gipsy style with carnival flair, all adding up with a balearic effect. It's a blend of guitar plucking, castanets, metallic chimes, and a festive lead organ with folk style vocals delivered as a higher pitched croon. Klichi also feels fit for the White Isle, but the growl of its heavily distorted bass and the nerve rattling sensations of its melodic keys lend it a more after-hours appeal. The first to remix Downtown are Bes & Meret, two DJs also from Munich whose productions have contributed to some impressive compilations, one such being Café del Mar. They straighten out the track's groove, providing for more drive. Dresden's Matthias Freudmann, Munich transplant Enne, and Greek native Christos Fourkis each harden the original around the edges with more club- friendly approaches. Enne, a prolific musician and member of Mohear, with his solo releases finding a home on labels like Compost and Permanent Vacation, is a definitive highlight with a heavy house shuffle on the hats and snare placed over the top of a deep, menacing acid bass line. There's plenty to choose from on this release for a variety of different nightclub contexts - 100 percent worth listening to and 100 percent danceable.-------Karmaloft Music startet in den Sommer mit dem neuen Tom Appl Release "Downtown".
