Starting in 2004 with ‘Made Within The Upper Stairs Of Heaven’ and 2008 with ‘Toinen’, Lindblad has a tendency for symmetry, and now with the release of ‘Third Encounter’ in 2012 is no coincidence, just a scandinavian way of saying good things take their time and it’s worth the wait. Analog synthesizers, sequencers and tape decks are something which are widely used in todays electronic music, but it is the mixture of the old and new - keeping the tradition of live jams instead of pre defined arrangements, choosing high standards in fidelity but keeping the rough feel to it – these elements together keep the sound of Sasse one step ahead of the competition, and why he is considered to be one of the most consistant producers in the scene. While ‘Fingers Inc’ and ‘707 Heaven’ pays homage to the gold era of Detroit and Chicago house, songs like ‘Analog City’ and ‘Fantazy’ brings memories of the mid 90s Sasse material, true Deep House as it used to be done. While ‘Alpha’ and ‘Der Groove’ takes a naked live jam approach to how to abuse analog goodies, ‘Low Slove’ and ‘Treat Me’ are raw sample based tunes, perfect for a late night dj-set. The album Third Encounter showcases the 20 past years of Klas Lindblad as a musician, dj and sound engineer, one who’s seen most of the modern musical styles evolve and dissolve. Always relying on the basic principles of Electronic Dance Music that less is more, Lindblad brings another fine full-lengt artist album out, surely to be considered his finest work til today.
