Tama Sumo / Various Panorama 02

Tama Sumo / Various Panorama 02
As one of the earliest residents at Berlin's legendary Tresor club, and a current resident at the Panorama bar, Tama Sumo (or Kerstin Egbert, to her friends) brings her ample dance floor experience to the second edition of the Panorama bar mix series. Known for her love of deep, funky house, Sumo doesn't shy away from playing with old and new school house and techno, electro and even disco. Also notable is her support of resident friends Prosumer and Murat Tepeli, both of whom are featured several times on this mix, to nice effect. In Panoramabar 02, an excellent beginning full of smooth and warm deep house cuts is followed by a nice rise in temperature, with artists like Shed and Levon Vincent featured past the halfway mark. However, the mix loses direction about three-quarters of the way through and the listener is left a little unsatisfied. Or is this the point and we're just being set up for the next party?
