«Another fresh pop-oriented insight into our catalogue, this time by Mr. Jan von Grafenstein who arrives from Germany lands. Jan is pretty much unknown in the netmusic scene, although he had a track - 'Luun' - released onto one of the famous Mercedes-Benz Mixed Tapes sometime ago. This thirteen track collection (hence the release title) that we're releasing could be easily filed under chillout, jazz fusion or even related to the highly productive late 90's Vienna scene. I guess we could call it 'old school' somehow.
Easygoing from beginning to end, with voluptous basslines, seductive orchestrations and crisp string arrangements, it has its apex with 'Backboogie', a fantastic and danceable track which pretty much sums up the whole album. Enjoy!» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«Test tube continues releasing really accessible and enjoyable music. 13 is a great record to listen anywhere -preferably on a train or laying down on a comfy chair near a pool somewhere warm and sunny. Great freestylish electronic music.»

«Pour la 70e sortie de ce netlabel, Jan Von Grafenstein nous propose une electro lounge assez classique, mais qui sonne bien. Effectivement ce n sont pas les trouvailles originales qui priment mais le tout est bien produit dans le style que Jan maîtrise bien. Je l'necourage à continuer dans cette voie en y mettant un peu plus de folie, ce petit quelque chose de personnel qui lui manque sur cet opus.»

«70 sorties pour un même netlabel!!! Ca commence à compter, tout de même, non? Bon, là, Jan Von Grafenstein propose une sorte de lounge chillout electro, sans grand intérêt mélodique. C'est bien ficelé, ça sonne juste mais ça ne m'interpelle pas plus que ça. Sorte de mélange entre William Orbit et The Thievery Corporation (mauvaise période). Je passe les semblants électro d'Ibiza and co... Bref, je ne suis pas vraiment conquis.»
