1 ½ years after “Instant Reality” (ka85) Diego Hostettler presents his excellent new longplayer “Open” with 10 brand-new tracks on cd and 9 tracks on double-vinyl. The 24 year old Swiss producer is one of the most active musicians at kanzleramt. “Open” is already his fourth solo-album and the sixth in total. Step by step, Diego’s profile grew from album to album until he found his records in dj sets from the international dj elite. The new album “Open” perfectly bridges the split between usually incompatible genres without any visible or audible conflicts.You can find early 90´s old-school rave monsters hand in hand with funky new-jazz tunes and a deep house track vis-a-vis an almost R&B track. Yet another improvement is the production side of the new album. “Open” is completely made with software synthesizers and samplers but never sounds too digital. It has a “natural” warm electronic hi-fi sound and some very interesting acoustic variations. If there´s any perfect title for the sound of the album it must be “Open”.
