Steffi‘s debut LP, Yours & Mine, was the kind of brilliantly pinpointed house record one comes to expect from Berghain’s Ostgut Ton outpost. In the three years since its release, the Berlin-based DJ has somehow managed to salvage some time in the studio, and returns under production duties with Power Of Anonymity on November 24. Judging from the title track, the follow-up hones in on Steffi’s formidable feel for the dancefloor a little more than its predecessor, riffing off electro and IDM tropes with a trademark precision and groove. If the album’s remaining cuts can uncannily invoke Incunabula-era Autechre in the way “Power Of Anonymity” does, we sense that Steffi will have many a happy customer.
