Lights from the Inside
Subtlety is not the first word used in connection with most DJs, but there is much more the metier of Germany's Gregor Tresher than simply playing records, as Lights from the Inside attests. In fact, after he completed pre-production on his third full-length, Tresher actually stepped away from the decks for six weeks to clear his head. "DJ'ing is my first profession," he admits. "It's what I love to do and what I have been doing for almost twenty years now, even before before I started to write my own music." in the past two years, the producer of 2008's best-selling Techno track on Beat port ("A Thousand Nights") has aspired to make music he would want to play out. "But for this record, I had the feeling that this shouldn't be my priority." While Lights from the Inside features several songs sure to find favour with Tresher's nightclub colleagues-"Frontline," "Breaking Routines," the giddy "As Days Go By" (recently issued as a single on Josh Wink's Ovum label)-this twelve-song odyssey.
