Soundstream makes house music with cut up disco samples. It’s a simple formula. In theory anyone should be able to create the kind of music he makes, but somehow his records sound unlike anyone else.

“Julie’s Theme” is vintage Soundstream. Stuttering keyboards that sound more or less like an old jazz-funk CD skipping introduce the record. Slowly, hi-hats and organ stabs begin to fill in the blanks until a shimmering disco melody is revealed. But, as soon as the record’s reached some kind of equilibrium, Soundstream begins to dismember things until only agitated blips and spartan percussion remain. This leaves space open for an absolutely huge kick drum to dominate proceedings during the record’s second half. Inferno” may or may not owe its name to the Trammps’ ’70s classic, but it shares much of the strutting dance floor energy. Rooted by a bassline straight out of the Bernard Edwards slap funk playbook, the track is propelled by soaring strings, disco hits and those ever-present big kick drums.
