After DVS1 sent his demo to Klock, the response was immediate. Being played by Klock at Free Your Mind festival this year, probably as well as a large number of other DJ sets, DVS1 put out three tracks that represents the current sound and state of the Berghain DJs and followers.

With ‘Searching’, a track that might first strike as quite futile, the power of the excellent progression and mesmerizing capabilities might only be proven at the grounds it was made for; dark clubs with a soundtrack orchestrated by the DJs of the same atmosphere as the track itself. Endlessly climbing with a steady beat, ‘Searching’ combines the elements of Ben Klock’s own material as well as the unexplored sides of producers catching up on the Ostgut sound and influence.

Keeping things just as cool, but more reduced, ‘Floating’ pinpoints the more experimental aspects of f.e. Cio D’or, certain Sähkö tracks and even a dose of Peter Van Hoesen. The same haunting feeling of ‘Searching’ is there, only more abstract and not so direct.

‘Running’ sounds a little bit as a revised ‘Searching’, but exceptionally more climbing and not as punching as the previous tracks – things goes a bit more atmospheric and in the long run, probably, more interesting.
