Talking Shopcast with Aim

LWE simply had to learn more by chatting with Tristen (with input from Aim’s graphic designer, Jan Kristof Lipp), who explained the label’s conceptual framework, its visual approach, and where the new X series fits into the imprint’s aesthetic remit. Tristen also contributed Talking Shopcast 16, a deeply hypnotic hour of house which goes a long way in explaining how his taste extrapolates into Aim’s particular sound.

Oskar Offermann, Apple Crumble Beneath My Feet

Dance music is nothing if not purpose-driven. And when one of your primary concerns is filling up a floor and making those on it go apeshit, it’s tough to resist what’s tried and true. But how does a producer not reinvent the wheel without engaging in outright hackery? In the weeks since I received Oskar Offermann’s latest White 12″, “Apple Crumble Beneath My Feet,” I’ve been scratching my head over whether the producer and labelhead is painting by numbers or insidiously distinguishing himself from the hordes of producers making records nearly identical to this one. WHITE008 brings you three tracks of bog-standard, disco-flecked Rhodes riffs — your laptop wearing a Moodymann wig, basically. But I can’t help but feel like Offermann has a compositional sense that pushes him beyond his music’s ever-obvious sound palate. It’s quite possible you already own this record in about twenty or thirty near-identical forms. Is it worth buying again?
