sosolp05: oliver schories – blitzbahn

As the wind whistles through your hair, everything passes you by in a blur. Faster and faster you go, faster and more terrifyingly into the abyss you fall. You scream with a mixture of panic and joyful abandon half wanting this to never end but knowing that it will anytime now: a smile creeps across your face. And as it ends, you breathe a sigh of relief, wistfully remembering with powerful emotive accuracy before hurriedly joining the back of the queue for another go – after all, it’s just a ride. Life is very much like the ‘Blitzbahn’. It goes up and down, round and round and for much of the ride, we never know what’s going to happen. Here on his fifth studio album, Oliver Schories explores all the fun of the fair across 13 expansive cuts that showcase his incredible knack for straddling that House/Techno mid-point with consummate ease. Some artists take years to craft their albums, agonising over every detail before, frustratingly, deleting the whole project and starting again. Oliver, however, is as prolific as he is confident of his ability to construct the kind of dance floor bombs that have helped him to build a significant head of steam in the underground.
