Pantha Du Prince’s latest album on Dial Records fuses techno, house and shoegazey indie...

Pantha Du Prince is the solo project of one Hendrik Weber, who has released records on Lawrence's introvert-techno label Dial since 2002 (the imprint scored sixth place in our Top 10 Labels of 2006, a great result for a smaller label). Weber’s latest album is the follow-up to his acclaimed LP ‘Diamond Daze’ from 2004, which was a collection of bittersweet techno that appealed to both dancefloors and headphones.

Pantha Du Prince proves that mixing up house and indie doesn’t have to result in MSTRKRFT. ‘This Bliss’ promises a melancholy mood with feet in both camps: Detroit and minimal vs. My Bloody Valentine and psychedelia (Weber even rejigged the eighties jangle-pop of the Chills’ ‘Pink Frost’ for the dancefloor on ‘Diamond Daze’). Weber looks outside the pop canon for inspiration too on the album: the track ‘Moonstruck’ is a homage to Terry Riley, while ‘Saturn Strobe’ is a cover of a track by contemporary composer Robert Skempton.
