Frivolous: Finds his Island of Sanctity

img  Tobias
The track starts with traces of the acoustic material, then bleeds straight into an organic polyrythmic groove, resampling the song for atmospherics. It is a luscious, embracing and delicate piece of dance music, yet retains the dark hypnoticism of the club. A second edit emphasises Gardner’s House roots, slowing down the action even more and bringing the soul-side of the piece to the fore.

The origin for this completely natural fusion of many different influences can be seen in his background as a classical instrumentalist – his previous full-length “Midnight Black Indulgence” was based on the principles of Baroque music and Jazz. Says Frivolous: “For me Jazz means a loseness and a feeling that can only be created by humans. It is the anti-machine. Even if it is sampled, it is usually for the quality of a magical moment that can't be graphed with 0-127 on time-code. "

The “Island Of Sanctity EP” is out now on 12’’ Vinyl on ~scape Records.
