Hello Moto


AUSTRIAN dance DJ Clara Moto's minimal dance album Polyamour has lots to love about it.
Never full on, Moto - real name Clara Prettenhofer - has a subtle house sound that could easily get swallowed up in a DJ set - on first play it may come across as set-list filler rather than dancefloor filler.
But the album from the DJ, who has a musical background in classical and jazz which helps raise her compositins above the formulaic, rather than grabbing the listener gradually sucks them in, like a nice hug.
And this delicate touch makes Polyamour the perfect soundtrack to the calm after the storm, an hypnotic comedown-soundtracking joy.
