referencing TV Tower EP, 12", EP, PULVER 012
"TV Tower" is the title for the 12th release of Pulver. A quiet obvious title considering the fact that
the TV tower of Stuttgart is the city’s symbol. And Stuttgart is the city where Pulver Records comes
from. In case of this EP, which is a mini Stuttgart “compilation”, it’s a perfect symbol that also
illustrate the upward mobile sound of the swabian metropolis.

With Pulver Records, a forum for unique club sounds was established, with music that covers the
whole bandwith of electronic grooves between funk, house, bossa, elektro and breakbeats. A
Fusion sound that is represented by Solarstar, who are the main protagonists of this EP.

Solarstar are Kline, Braun and Fab, producers and musicians that currently cause a big stir in
Stuttgart, when they appear live on stage with their singer Fola Dada. The track "Diskohit" is
indeed a hit in Stuttgart’s clubs and it’s quiet likely that major part of the globe will move their hips
and lips to "Diskohit" in the Hotspot Remix of Dublex Inc., with it’s electronic, yet deep and soulful
sounding vibe.

In cooperation with Subson on B1 of this EP, the track "2S1" shows how soulful Solarstar can get.
And this with a funky offbeat, one can hardly resist. Subson originally stems from the South East
Asian Urukthapel but currently lives in Zug in Switzerland where he touched base with electronic
dance music and decided to program beats. During a session in Stuttgart, he met Solarstar and
"2S1" emerged as a fruit of their first joint recordings.

"Prepare To Dance", the closing track of the "TV Tower EP" shows Solarstar finally in full solo
effect: A string ensemble, a laid back beat, and Fola’s sweet soul voice - a track to melt down.

All in all, you’ll find four great tracks on this EP, three fruitful collabs - with Pulver No.12 Stuttgart
and it’s tv tower will surely cause a sensation.
