As a part of Delsin‘s house series, Erdbeerschnitzel has dropped the aptly namedÂ The Ample Waters 12″. This summer, the heat has been relentless here in North Texas but luckily the rain has become more frequent… what better way to soundtrack it than with aquatic house? The title track “The Ample Waters” dials back the drum machines to give spotlight to the bass licks that are peppered throughout. “Never Tilt,” the track following it gets a bit clumsy as Delsin says, as synth lines become more jagged and haphazard stumbling over the wooden percussion. The bass’ prominence isn’t as formidable, but it definitely provides the balance needed for the new M.O. With the third track “With Level Hopes,” Erdbeerschnitzel stops staring at the shimmering pool, and takes a dive in – this would feel at home within the confines of Bomberman 64. Lastly “Yet Unfulfilled” sounds like a pitched down Toro y Moi track.

Hot on the heels of his last outing for the Delsin house series comes this, another essential new offering from German producer Erdbeerschnitzel. The experienced producer has many skills in his arsenal and this new EP proves that once again.
The title track 'The Ample Waters' is a joyous and lively concoction that fuses curious melodies with busy little piano stabs and more trilling, sunny melodies. It's busy house for bustling dancefloors and next up, 'Never Tilt' slows things down with jumbled, woody percussion falling over lazy drums and stretched, yawning synth smears. Colourful and effervescent, it's a track that makes you want to shake your limbs.
'With Level Hopes' is again characterised by melodic colour, with pixelated patterns stretched over a funky, gooey bassline and clacking percussion. There's a beautifully DIY feel to the loosely assembled track that gives it a life all of its own before closer 'Yet Unfulfilled' pairs slo-mo beats with neo-soul vocal snippets, lazy and stoned summer chords. It's the most emotive of the lot, but all four tracks are truly feel good jams that have come just in time for some serious summer action.
