«If you write down and then spell 'Rico Puestel' (with 'ue' instead of the original germanic 'ü') you might think we're talking about a Miami-Cuban cocaine smuggler or something like that. But Rico Püstel is a real german, probably living close to some place like the one on the cover: plenty of snow and below zero temperatures in the winter, and very mild summers. All framed by tall mountains. Not even close to the almost tropical climate of Southern Florida or Cuba. But the music that Rico makes is hot enough to melt the Alps.

'Amatory' is a short EP that samples Rico's primary influences of 90's techno, a pinch of dub and funk and even some IDM thrown into the mix. This recipe results in extremely danceable and feel-good tunes without sounding brainless excercises. There's enough interesting stuff going on to keep you sufficiently interested. Three words: I want more!» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«One of the most interesting funky/chilling EP i’ve heard comes from one of the most interesting netlabel i kwown! “Amatory” composed by “Rico Püstel” is firmed by Test Tube Netlabel. It was for me an experience that i’m strictly recommending! La pura Vida!!!»

«away from any futility, the seventh track of this so danceable amatory is very precisely and so properly entitled "interlude", a spice of time, just a precious gap, an interstice very far from any waste of... time, far from things and other references - we shall certainly do not ignore our pleasing infatuation, not without first thanking Rico Püstel for this luxuriant present.»
