Stephan Bodzin hasn’t put out any solo material in a few years, and Strand serves as a reminder as to why he is so well respected. Issued on Tale Of Us’ Afterlife label, it sees the German producer strike a fine balance between pristine trance melodies and subtle, club-friendly grooves. The title track is vintage Bodzin; featuring a powerful, purring bass and hypnotic synth riffs, it ebbs and flows like the evening tide. “Catamaran” is more understated. It sees Bodzin take influence from Italo and even early German electronic music to create an unforgettable piece of moving, melancholic dance music – its melodies swirling over a dubbed out backing.
