Theo Schmitt, a remarkable dj/Producer from Frankfurt Germany, celebrates his recent album release on Re:Sound as it reaches #1 on Beatport's techno charts. “Intoxication” is an eight-track masterpiece that takes us on an emotional journey through Schmitt’s trademark sounds. With support from legends like Maceo Plex, Danny Tenaglia, Max Graham, John Digweed, and many more, Intoxication has become an iconic album for 2019 techno.
We start this journey with “Beat Trip." The song starts with a smooth, down-tempo breakbeat, and ends with a melodic groove from “Good Times." Our minds wander throughout the album, from the acid vibes to the harmonic upbeat rhythms.
My personal favorite from the album is “Gegengift” because of its raw acid feel. The synth used is such a classic, it gives me nostalgia. Though I don't know how to pronounce the title, I sing along to the vocal, pretending as I do.
