The Taped Artifact label follows up a fine please from Kevin Arnemann with a new EP by Natan H, a LA based producer who originally hails from Chicago. In the past Natan, born Jordan Hochenbaum, has released on ManMakeMusic and Finale Sessions as well as Altered Moods and favours a deep, absorbing house sound full of cosmic atmosphere.
Opener 'Erklingen Dub' is a seriously widescreen bit of richly detailed dub with smeared chords, buried deep drums and warming sub bass all enveloping you in a hypnotic rhythm. 'Te Aro' is just as deep and absorbing, with vast but lazy house kicks rolling on beneath heavenly pads and gently tumbling drum hits. 'Submission' gets a little more upright but is still richly layered in lush, gloopy synths. 'Orthogonal' closes things out with an off-kilter, broken dub beat that is run through with static, hot cosmic winds and a certain sense of late night spirituality that will make any dance floor feel cosy and inviting.
