Given that his bulging discography boasts over a decade's worth of releases for the likes of Tsuba. BPitch Control, No Fit State and Dogmatik, it would be fair to describe Samuel "Okain" Thalman as as reliable source of rock solid tech-house treats. Certainly, there's plenty to set the pulse racing on the Berlin-based Frenchman's first INFUSE EP, from the deep and spacey, sub-heavy bounce of opener "Place Des Fetes", to the breezier, breakbeat-driven crunchiness of swirling bonus cut "Magic Box". Rich NxT lends a hand on the flipside, turning in a rolling, mind-altering remix of "Place Des Fetes" that smothers a rubbery, low-slung bassline and snare-heavy beats with bubbly electronics and drifting, dubbed-out synth riffs.
