Germany Germany is baaack! Ok, perhaps thats not such a dramatic statement as Drew Harris never really left. TBE’s most prolific artist never stops toiling and boiling in his laptopÂ laboratoryÂ of swirling beats and bubbling treats. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the guy’s output, never having enough time to get into an LP/EP before being hit with the next one, so I really gave his latest album, Adventures, a while to sink in. And a while it took. The double edged sword of Germany Germany is that if you know epic bangers like “Radiowave” or the instant classics like “Home” or “Lena” then it can be easy to expect such face grabbers. But I tell you this, expectations are a dangerous thing when you are dealing with such a young and continually evolving force as GG. If last years Last Summer LP taught us anything it’s thatÂ sometimesÂ GG just wants us to relax and take a breather. And you know what? He is right. But that kind of chilling doesn’t apply to every moment and that’s whereÂ AdventuresÂ comes in. At a heavy 17 tracks it has a lot of options. I find cracking into such dense albums to be quite difficult so I was thankful to The Mill digital studios for using “Too Fast” in their latest show-reel because if that jam doesn’t fit the mood just perfectly then I don’t know what does.Â
So anyway, enough rambling. I think The Mill just did GG’s music more justice than I ever could. Adventures is out now and contains previously posted jam “Take Your Time.” Harris is currently on a tour throughÂ EuropeÂ and I couldn’t be more stoked for the guy and jealous of the thought that there are people out there catching a live GG show and I’m not one of them. Stream, buy, and read about some of the awesome sampling techniques used here.
