  • Description When Dérive Records released "Ne Travaillez Jamais" in 2009, Christopher Rau succeeds what rarely happens to the universe of House Music: He creates a longtime everybody's darling, a dream around that one magic loop which would last forever on the dancefloors.
    Now after releases on Staub, Laid and Smallville the dream develops, the magic expands: Christopher Rau`s Debut Album Asper Clouds builds up one hour of pure beauty. No trend to be followed no invention to be intended it is the reduced gorgeousness that lets us float on sweet Asper Clouds.
    Nick Holder, Theo Parrish, Moodymann, Pete Rock, J Dilla- they all simply cached the right sense for magic samples, heavenly loops, warmest basslines- Christopher Rau might not connect to this heroes personally but he belongs to those magician who forms happiness out of a lowest amount of ingredients.
    It has been the sweetness and warmth of the city of Hamburg, it's delightful venues such as the Golden Pudel Club and Smallville Parties at Ego that made him diving into deepest music. After "Ne Travaillez Jamais" became the favorite track of all Smallville and Dial Djs and Rau played on one of those magic nights the idea of an Album was born. The plan was as simple and lovely as the music on Asper Clouds is. Here comes the sun.
