In the early 2000s, Marco Resmann sent a demo to Martin Landsky and his label at the time, Intim Recordings. Landsky released the demo in 2002 as the Volkspark EP, a record that became the foundation for Resmann's career. Now Resmann and Landsky present their collaborative EP Lava, opening with Lava 1, a pumping, deep technoid piece with seductive grooves only stripped-down house music can provide. Lava 2 sports a dry, wild pitch and Chicago-related feel over twisting background noises. Lava Dub builds on a foundation of lush bass drums and rich, dreamy string arrangements accompanied by dubbed-out vocal snippets.
