Stars Wrapped In Skin


The Definition:Music crew is more than happy to introduce a new member to their artist family with Natascha Polké. Backed by extensive studies in the UK metropolis of London, inspired by artists like Christian Löffler or Jan Blomqvist and drawing from her ever growing DJ and nightlife experience, which already saw Natascha Polké taking over slots at the famed Hive Club and other places, the Zurich-based artist developed a unique approach to what she describes as dreamy, melody-driven electronica. The title track and opener "Stars Wrapped In Skin" starts on a complex, melodically intricate level, combining warm, analog basslines and crystalline motifs for the dancefloor whilst Natascha Polké's tender and fragile vocals add a certain element of beauty, melancholia and masterly sculpted sonic poetry, no matter if this tune is hammered through a big club P.A. or played on late night radio. "I Don't Mind" indulges in deeply felt, most beauteous dancefloor melancholia and turns out to be one perfect closing tune for a long and ecstatic night out that's about to end way after the wee hours have passed. With "Neverland" you see Polké's love for the dancefloor and huge basslines manifest once again, this time fusing with cascading synth lines and hyper-harmonic arrangements. The subsequent "Neverland (Aparde Remix)" alters the original cut only slightly and takes the vibe to an even dreamier, more harmonic level. The second LP kicks off with "Burning Out", a spheric track where organic sounds meet disarmingly intimate vocals. A soundscape that keeps building and falling like gushing waves. Nostalgic call-and-response movements carry you into the unknown of our inner universe with an irresistible groove. "Wildfire" is a track with an atmosphere that lures you in and plays with your mind, teasing with enticing percussion and warped synths before making way for stunningly performed vocals. It fuses classic techno feel with contemporary aesthetics. Launching straight into the breakbeat percussion and uncompromising synth line, Defintion's remix of "Burning Out" enters the room like it's here to stay. The producer blends rough rawness with fragility, ties in thunder-like build-ups with intricate vocals and metallic synth stabs, harsh like blades. A remix that lives to be blasted in clubs and will easily demolish dance floors all over the world. The second remix stems from Night Talk. He's created a slow burner, a tune that keeps on building, where he skillfully controls the releases of energy, and places it exactly where and when it's needed. Gatefold sleeve.
