Following the overwhelming feedback about our first release, we proudly present to you the RENAISSANCE EP by Berlin’s HONESTY (known for his work with Daniel Paul as Slope on Sonar Kollektiv). Being his first solo EP since 2000, we are thrilled to propose you this fresh perspective on Honesty’s musical identity and to include him as one of our Room with a view core artists. In our book, he is genuinely one of these “unsung heroes” of the German electronic scene that carries 20 years of dedication & experience through many sideways & projects, representing wisely an open source of musical horizons as wide as Berlin’s, the city that shelters him since the mid nineties.

The cosmopolitan flair of Berlin & its club scene developments in the last 2 decades are only a part of what nourished Honesty’s appetite for translating an already well furnished musical background. Honesty is a master in the art of creating “hybrid” club music that is crossing over genres & musical emotions. This EP is a jewel of “retro futurism” opening with the stunning BRIXTON BEACH. Some would probably describe it as a mixture of Neo Boogie & Proto-Techno, somewhere between vintage works of Morgan Geist & Carl Craig. We simply believe it is some of the sexiest & funkiest club soundtrack to be experienced today & tomorrow. The same could probably apply to BLEEP ME, a well rounded prototype of moody deep house mutating in a cosmic disco trip. A track able to combine a subtle atmospheric climax with a relentless disco energy. The spacey & moody aspects of Honesty’s music are developing some hypnotic qualities with the dubby house of STARTER SEVEN. A track of unrevealed power as long as you didn’t play on a proper sound system…
