Review: Swedish DJ and producer based in Berlin La Fleur is resident at local superclub Watergate, so sure knows what it takes to rock a dancefloor. "Flowerhead" was originally released in 2010 on her own Power Plant imprint and now gets a reprise by an all star cast. Starting off with another one of the city's leading stars; Panorama Bar resident Cassy, who provides a high octane rendition fuelled by some powerful arpeggios. The city's reigning queen of rolling house grooves Dana Ruh provides a very functional version, aimed for for DJ use as always. Finally, La Fleur herself delivers a a "2016 rework" to commemorate 10 years since the track's release: a true milestone in a very successful career thus far.
Review: Over the course of her ten-year career, Sanna La Fleur Engdahl has alternated between releasing music on Watergate and her own Power Plant imprint. Here, the Berlin-based Swede returns to her own label for the first time in nearly two years with a two-track missive aimed squarely at peak-time dancefloors. Our pick of the pair is the bounding bounciness of A-side "Hunting Ground", where P-funk style talkbox vocals and foreboding chords ride an attractive synth bassline and restless dancefloor groove. Flipside "Aphelion" is a little less driving but even more melodious, with the fuzzy, lo-fi riffs and colourful construction reminding us a little of some of Orbital's classic mid 1990s works.
