Adam Port’s background as a techno and house producer eschews many house music clichés, with his first musical influences actually coming from the hardcore scene of the east coast metropolises of the USA. Along with his straight-edge lifestyle, hip hop was also a crucial part of his life and which led to him learning to spin records. Fortunately for us he found his way to electronic music and especially to house music, otherwise the scene would be without a very talented musician.
On his Moon Harbour debut, his ability in creative sampling comes to the fore. The central theme of “Basement” is the drum loop, which in spite of its simplicity keeps the track vibrant and organic. Daniel Wilde’s vocals add a haunting atmosphere and characterise many of Port’s tracks. Together you can just feel the dark but enthusiastic vibes of techno basement parties.
In his remix Moon Harbour label-boss Matthias Tanzmann places less importance on the drum loop and concentrates more on small and detailed effects without abandoning his trademark dry and reduced funk.
The track “Tell you” delivers a crazy disco jam, highly polished with piano and drum loops and a vocal sample as sweet as candy - catchy without being cheesy.
