“Brooklyn-based Galcher Lustwerk's music sounds like an aerial view of a convertible rolling along the neon-lit streets of a middle American city. It is hazy, dimly lysergic music that favours atmosphere above all else. Across this year's Tape 22 and Lustwerk's hour-long, utterly exquisite all-originals mix 100% Galcher, the tools remain pretty constant: gently warped, highly melodic pads, pared down house rhythms and, the most easily recognisable element of all, Lustwerk's voice. The artist half raps, half intones, pulling out narrative threads based around car journeys, aborted parties and drugs. Stylistically the vocals mine a rich seam of spoken word house, operating in the same sphere as, for example, Kerri Chandler's 'Back To The Raw'. Instrumentally, meanwhile, Lustwerk seems to be single-handedly attempting to claw back the notion of 'deep house' from the risible soft-porn-backdrops-on-You
