TLM067: Platypus – Soft Spoken Trees

Purchase now at:  

Featured Artists: Platypus, Roland M. Dill

Making his Thoughtless debut with a remix of Brian Johnson’s All of the Time, enigmatic Ontario producer Platypus delivers his debut EP with Soft Spoken Trees. The title track kicks things off with pure open-air summertime vibes: a vital combination of modern deep house and classic synth work that should fit perfect with the post-disco set. Cologne’s Roland M. Dill is certainly no stranger to hard-hitting remix work, and his version of the original pulls no punches in transforming it into a late-night techno juggernaut. Your Face Reminds Me takes a darker, hypnotic approach, while closing track Southbound to Marion marries evocative metallic melodies and swirling pads with a welcome 2-step influence which maintains a steady pace through ever deepening territory. Engaging arrangements and a harmonic sensibility all too rare in contemporary house music clearly display the value of keeping a unique creature like the Platypus around…
