This was a really pleasant surprise when I bought it at the time. I expected typical Tresor Techno, but this is something completely different. Warm textures & downtempo beats create a very laidback atmosphere, but still metallic & synthetic. For me it's kind of similar to Maurizio's productions: although less groundbreaking, still equally timeless.
The album definitly explores different moods throughout the tracks: shifting from sunny & happy to melancholic & confused/confusing. My favourite tracks are "Alright" & "Highrise": both nearly 10min but far from boring!

The greek native is recording since early 90ies. 1994-1998 he worked with TAYLOR DEUPREE under the names Seti, Futique, Arc, Skai in New York and released two EPs and 8 albums. The different project names stand for the variety of Ysatis' musical directions and interests. Futique: Trip Hop Electronica, Arc: Detroit orientated Techno, Skai: Tech-House. Volume 1 of a series of music based on architecture was the'Tower of Winds' album by SAVVAS YSATIS & TAYLOR DEUPREE. Basedon the structure of the building in Yokohama, Japan, which - through a series of lights that are built into the structure, reflective panels and electronic sensors - emits light patterns asit responds to environmental changes. The Ambient /Avantgarde album will be featured at the Museum of Modern Art in NY as part of a sound installation. Also SAVVAS YSATIS responds to environmental changes. Back in Greece for a while now he produced a veryharmonic summer album. Dance tracks transferring the easiness of life in the sun next to the beach - after a grey and dark winter in Northern Europe not only needed by the Tresor crew, but also definately on Tech-House floors. Ysatis works like an architect producingwise. (S) tone on (s) tone are building up to flowing sounds with laid back grooves reflecting Ysatis' time in the US. Cocktailbar? Afterhour? Dancefloor? It's music that hits yourmind and soul. Enough reason to welcome SAVVAS YSATIS in the Tresor family.
