Sandrow M

Prayervan EP

Who’s next, please? It’s Sandrow M who was introduced with “The Three Trees” on UV010. Finally, he arrives with his solo debut for the Dresden based label and it ended up being a hell of a record full of diversity.

Everything starts with the edgy beats of “Prayervan” that are quickly flattered by one of those catchy melodies typical for Sandrow’s synths play. This is great Pop music, even more when Sandrow M starts to sing. “Facerunner” however, is a club tune with its ever rising beats that are accompanied by a superb synth pad.

The flipside starts with the catchy anthem “Gonna Make”. You cannot defend yourself against this sample that will stick in your head for a long time. And once again it’s his synth work that makes the difference. Not to mention the funky solo. “Schnaubi” rounds things up in a more unpolished way with its stuttering drum work. But here again this is refined by those irresistible harmonies out of Sandrow M’s keys.
