A core member of the Oberbaumbr├╝cke family delivers a sleek label debut. As the club's technician, Joris Biesmans (aka Biesmans) has been an invaluable fixture at Watergate for the last five years. A true audiophile, when he's not tuning WG's sound system to perfection, he's building modular synths and honing his studio craft. Having recently quit his technician job to focus on making music full time, he's a new addition to the WG agency roster and follows suit with an impressive debut EP on the label, after releases on Correspondent, AEON, and Adana Twins' TAU. The title track "Electric Love" is a chugging slice of electro, marked by lush key progressions and attitude-drenched vocals from newcomer Idorski. Marvin and Guy Amplifier are tapped for remix duties and inject the original with a celestial melody line primed for end-of-the-night moments. "Technician on a Mission" is driven by a polished bassline that modulates throughout, while '80s synths give it a retro-future stamp. "City Boy" is a modern day synth-wave gem, reinforcing the breadth of sound espoused by Watergate Records.
