Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier have it easy. UK dance producers carry the ‘let’s push things forward’ thing round their necks like an albatross. The Americans think that if their tracks don’t have the horsepower of a Harrier jump jet, it’s not loud enough. Meanwhile, because they’re Germans, this stratospherically successful production duo are free to get on with making immaculate, tactile house music. Some isolated moments make you want to vom a bit – Groove Armada trombone on ‘Many Rivers’ – but ‘Love Inc’ neatly reworks a snatch of Lil Louis’ house classic ‘Club Lonely’ into insistent Balearica, and you can’t argue with that.
