Within the whole retro-mania of ’80s induced club music, you rarely find an artist being as deeply immersed in the affective reverberation of old synthesizers as her. Jennifer Touch shares her second EP on Riotvan, featuring reworks by Llewellyn and Fabrizio Mammarella.

Let’s lower our heads in gratitude and move our feet in elation, it’s the resurgence of Jennifer Touch on Riotvan. We’ve witnessed her dropping a substantial cycle named “Feeling C” on the label, a couple of years ago, and just praised her contribution to the second “Familiar Faces” Compilation. Now it’s time for her second artist EP on the label, displaying the evolution and further refinement of her unique style, with as center piece, her immaculate ability to build dance floor-ready bridges between ’80s synth-aesthetics, Postpunk and wave.

Taking care of the reworks, we’ve the undisputed one man army Martin Enke, under his Llewellyn moniker, and Slow Motion head honcho Fabrizio Mammarella. Honouring the original by taking in almost everything of the source material, Llewellyn retouches “Chemistry” into a vibrant, dance floor chugger, focussed on Touch’s Postpunk- and Wave-kissed dreariness. Highly recommended!


Chemistry is scheduled for release March 1st. Grab your copy via Muting The Noise & Bandcamp.
