I’ll confess I’m new to Swiss producer Water Lilly, who has had a long and full career releasing over twenty EPs since ‘99 on labels such as Gigolo and Lasergun. Somehow she has flown under my radar, but these two tracks have really caught my attention.
This is electronic dance music at it’s purest, the funkier successor to Kraftwerk. Taken from her new album, ‘Gosshammer’, these tunes mix up Techno, Electro, ElectroPop and a little Disco groove in a package that owes much to the simple melodies of Kraftwek, 80’s SynthPop and 90’s Techno. I defy anyone who digs synthesizer music not to find something to love within these songs. Whether the melodic 80’s Techno Funk of ‘Lovebeat’ or the harder EBM-esque ‘Arpenter’, these two offerings are masterpieces, meticulously crafted by someone with a genuine love of synthesizers. That’s the way to our heart!
Water Lilly’s ‘Gosshammer’ is out now on Mental Groove Records
