Quotes: The German jazz scene kicks up another excellent 12”, this time from Hamburg’s Worldless People. For a laidback yet funky tune check ‘Positivity’… For the dancefloor ‘Minority’ is the one; a chiply little bassline, funky 4/4 beats and some jazzy keys make this a dancefloor winner every time. SNC
Info: Worldless Productions are the producer-team Wolfgang Rüter, Lars Behrenroth and Ralph Boege from Hamburg. From there they launch their projects as for example Worldless People, a co-operation with DJ Daniel Magg from Constance, Germany. 26-year-old Daniel is DJ for about ten years now and for the past 3 years resident DJ at the Club Metro in Friedrichshafen, which is right next to the wonderful lake “Bodensee”. He mainly plays house music, but he always includes some of the latest leftfield off-beat tracks in his DJ-Sets. One track of the 12” also features a co-operation with Hamburg based DJ and producer Lars “LB” Behrenroth of BOC-Productions, a friend of Daniel Magg; there are already further projects planned with him, as well as with other DJs and producers. Musically, Worldless People are basically influenced by genres like House, Off-Beat, Jazz, Funk & Soul, which can partly be heard on this 12”. Due to Wolfgang’s fundamental musical education and Daniel’s club-experience, the tracks work at home and on the dancefloor. The first track “Positivity” kicks off as pure quality downbeat but then, as the bassline changes, grows into a fantastic house influenced off-beat track. Perfectly programmed beats and great vocals by Mr. Derrick Carter himself assure that this track will find its way in the DJs’ playlists, even though it is a rather chillin’ number. The second track “Minority…” is strictly house music. A funky bassline, nice spherical sounds, and vocals that animate you to dance, what else do you need. “Body Talk” is a house track as well but this time the sound is deeper and the beats have a more percussive touch; several jazzy elements make this one perfectly for the leftfield house corner. Watch out for more Worldless People releases in the new year !
