REVIEW: Nordheim & Tomcraft - Paradise Lost / Heat out on Death By Stereo

Continuing his run of releases and a serious return to form, DB Stereo co-owner, Tomcraft serves up a double A-side for his latest project: Nordheim & Tomcraft, with Munich-based producer​ ​and​ ​modular​ ​synth​ ​wizard​ ​Dominic​ ​von​ ​Nordheim.

‘Heat’ is a pressure-cooker of a club cut that homes in on those peak time sessions. Paradise Lost dips into a more self-reflective palate of sounds: the driving kick and bass remain but a Zero-7 style electric piano provides the melodic build, before a very tasty drop.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Nordheim and Tomcraft combine their forces to service two very strong and different tracks. Heat is the more upfront tech house banger with dark moody edges, great haunting synthy layers and rolling beats to attract your attention and grab you from start to finish. It oozes classy treatment. Paradise Lost is my favourite of the two because has more esoteric easy lonely rider side to it. The rock guitar riff along with the piano chords and melancholic strings upon the driving pulsating basslines makes this track really special and attention grabber for sure. Better not miss them as both will be ADE Weapons. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
