Stout Cortez - "Berliner"

My discovery of New Haven laptop pop maestro Justin Hunter Scott (better know as his stage name Stout Cortez) was the result of pseudo-obsessively watching Illuminator, to see when they'd put out more stuff. One day they announced that Illuminator's mastermind Bryn Bellomy had produced a track for Stout Cortez and without really thinking about it, I was on it. Normally I'm not much of a fan of electronic crafted indie pop jams and yet, my liking Stout Cortez's "Berliner" is a testament to the man's craftsmanship. Grounding ever-present boom-crashes and dizzy synthy sweeps, it's equal parts dreamy space pop and dancey floorfiller that's downright infectious. I dare you to only listen once. It's all sorts of impossible.
