Having spent the last decade evolving into one of dance music's most sublimely effective producers, CWPT is delighted to welcome Theo Kottis at the peak of his powers, delivering a further four tracks that demonstrate a playful mastery of widescreen sounds for wide-eyed dancefloors.Capturing the light still shining from his beloved 'Lighthouse', finally released earlier in 2024 via Dekmantel and escalated into notoriety thanks to support from trusted selectors such as Ben UFO, Francesco Del Garda and our own Palms Trax, title track 'Rain' retains a similar, blindingly authentic nineties reverence, finding ecstasy in a wash of cascading synths, powerful plunges of sub-bass and layer upon layer of elasticated everything.The Scottish producer's positive education in the foundations of club music with real personality makes itself known without indulgence; a belief in the subtle tweaks and imagination of classic tech-house, alongside a welcome flirtation with the over-the-top elements that create something potentially anthemic. In this regard, 'Benirras' proves to be pure pleasure for dancers who love to be toyed with, it's stripped back opening giving way to slowly-escalating, wobbly-jawed hysteria.On the flip, 'Grazie' proves as cordial as it's title, a warm and refined slice of sleek house minimalism, a roller with Alfa Romeo sensibilities. Things take a more aquatic turn on 'Lowkey', a logically headsy conclusion that sees Kottis sensually bounce the word 'electro' around in that very style, it's slower tempo and wider space allowing the impressive intricacies of his productions to float up for fresh air.
