    Solid release from Panthera Krause. My personal favourite is the opener "Through My Mind", 6 minutes of pure bliss that begs to be played outside, during sunrise. Accompanied by strings, it slowly leads us deep into melancholic territory, before throwing in the vocals - "there's no one here" - and looping "just through my mind" to infinity and beyond.

    "Isla" sort of keeps the sad mood, but adds a lot of tension with a stronger focus on the beat. You can almost feel the loneliness, stress and confusion poor doggy Laika must have experienced aboard Sputnik 2.

    "If" shows us a different approach, unlike the previous two it's hardly made for the dancefloor, starting as a percussive track before throwing you into a calm break, and then adding more, highly repetitive elements that are loosened every now and then by more synthies or Johanna Neumans beautiful vocals. It's a track that requires patience to listen through, but somehow makes sense once you reached the end.

    "Dubček" gets us back down to earth, something Laika would never experience as we all know, with its 4-to-the-floor pattern and its deep bassline. Maybe that's why - in my opinion - it doesn't fit into the story this EP is trying to tell.

    A quality release that proofs you should keep an eye on Riotvan and the whole electronic music scene in Leipzig.
