Jeremy Mann - Evening Over San Francisco

I didn't know much of Sven Väth's work a few months back, in fact the only thing I knew is he was still playing sets thanks to a poster in my city, and that he'd once done a playful kitsch cover of Serge Gainsbourg's Je T'aime Moi Non Plus with Miss Kittin. I did a bit of digging and ended up on his debut LP from 1992 Accident In Paradise. Trying to ignore the bad artwork I got to listening and was pleasantly surprised by track 3, which opened with pretty much the same sound and progression of F.U.S.E's Nitedrive, but that soon gave way to the smooth techno stylings of tracks before. A nice addition to my small pool of ambient techno for sure.
