Lauer returns from Mascat's orbit to New York City's Beats In Space Records with a new two-tracker, Hands & Feet / Stigma. Since 2012's Mascat Ring Down, Lauer ditched city life for a quiet village outside of Frankfurt. Lauer embraced the space for his young family and settled his creative headquarters in a quaint attic studio. The new environments and housemate, a slumbering infant son, inspired these two songs to breathe a delicate and patient air. Recorded during the first summer of his new domesticity, both tracks swell with echoed piano riffs buoyed by Lauer's dependably precise programming. 'Hands & Feet' rides galactic grooves alongside patient 303 lines and melodies reminiscent of Fourth Floor Records' finest. 'Stigma' digs deeper into pop nostalgia, tugging at the heartstrings of a teenage romance's memory. Crystalline chords lead layered arpeggios through inspired '80s Top 40, mechanised with a distinctly Lauer-ian machine funk. Each 12 on Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. Kensei Yabuno recasts Mascat's squid into a pez dispenser for the vinyl cover of Hands & Feet / Stigma. The 12" packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
