Brejcha’s new 12-track album, Never Stop Dancing, is out now on Ultra Records. Here’s what we thought of it.

Reviewed: Boris Brejcha drops a landmark tenth studio album

Global dance music superstar DJ Boris Brejcha is back with a bang as he unveils his latest body of work – a twelve-track assortment of blistering house and techno heaters, known collectively as ‘Never Stop Dancing’. 

Landing on the same day as his birthday, Boris’ landmark tenth studio album comes to us via world-class electronic imprint Ultra Records. A celebration of all things Brejcha, Never Stop Dancing is another shining exhibition of Boris’ almost unbelievable work ethic and unparalleled individuality. 

Interestingly, the album also features a lot of Boris’ partner, Ginger, who delivers gripping vocals across almost half of the tracks. The only other feature on the album comes unexpectedly from the London pop trio Arctic Lake – a masterfully thought and executed decision from all parties involved. 

What can we say about the album itself? Well, first of all, you’ll struggle to find another collection of tracks released this year that stretch across such a vast spectrum of genre-influenced sounds. Boris’ renowned ‘High-Tech Minimal’ style flows between clean-cut House and Techno numbers, each filled with his signature rampant energy and gritty melodies.  

An explicitly club-feel album through and through, you could almost be mistaken for thinking it was a DJ set if you were listening to it without knowing it was an album. That in itself is just one of the many aspects that make Boris such a celebrated global name – fluidity.

Across an astoundingly diverse smorgasbord of tracks, there’s a little something for everyone. On the one hand, the aptly titled ‘House Music’ sees Boris team up with incredible three-piece London act Arctic Lake for a floor-filling flurry of Defected-style danceability. On the other hand, the creatively wonderful ‘State Of Mind’ sees Brejcha and Ginger deliver an undeniably standout musical construction. The German hitmaker relentlessly carves out an archetypally exhilarating journey that feels very much like you may need a sit down at the end (or even a good shower).
