Yha. I was hoping good house was making a come back, but he kind of got into the more boring stuff later in his career.
THere's some AMAZINGGGGGGGG underground house and disco going on RIGHT now though! I hope it gets bigger (but not too big lol).

Yha. He was really on to something in the beginning. This is my fave track by him. He has a few other pretty ace ones. Lots of harmonies and melody in it (he was actually more harmony based which I liked). I remembering hearing some stuff and going "hmm pretty good", but then I heard Faxing Berlin and I was like "ohhh yha, this is some NICE stuff". Sounded really "thick" mix wise. Haunting, beautiful, nostalgic but modern. I loved it.
His new stuff is just okay. I've seen him live 4 times and he's not consistent, but pretty good. He did upload a new track recently which has some nice orchestra strings on it and goes back to this house vibe. It's on his soundcloud. Hope he goes with it and puts out an album or EP of similar ideas.
