    Perhaps a marginally less absorbing spin than Nick Höppner’s addition to the series last summer, but judged on its own merits, Panorama 05 still constitutes a solid house mix.

    Steffi's transitions on Panorama Bar 05 sound smooth enough that they turn a mix listener's typical consideration of song blends towards the complementary selection of plunging machine sounds, naturalized in Panorama Bar 05 upon the steps of an ascendant, emotive trajectory.

    It’s as classy and unassumingly smart as you’d expect.

    Panorama Bar 05, the latest offering, is a consistently well-crafted snapshot of the dancefloor as presided over by long-time resident DJ Steffi.

    Thanks to its introspective depth, it's equally well suited to solitary listening, the rare mix that connects dance music's public sphere--joyous, communal, kinetic, chaotic--with a more private kind of rapture.

    Homogenous and slightly predictable, Panorama Bar 05 is not Steffi at her most adventurous.
