This third and final EP taken from the album ‘Trialog’ of the duo of HVOB on Stil Vor Talent opens with the original mix of ‘Tender Skin’, with dark melodies, the creation of musical layers impregnated with feelings and the voice of Anna Müller that gives these atmospheres of melancholy, this time accompanied by a vigorous and forceful bassline, a cut that is accompanied by Dj Tennis remix, leading the remix to 9 minutes, with a more nervous pace, voices with echoes and loops, and with an atmosphere full of mystery and darkness, with a development that remix is becoming a second part which makes it more magical and dreamy.

The second original cut by HVOB, ‘The Anxiety To Please’, a more melancholy composition, with the addition of chords on piano and the always wonderful voice of Anna describing those dark landscapes, musical sensitivity, beautiful composition that is accompanying by the remix from Scuba, leading the remix to 7 minutes with a few sounds more techno, and a pace more oriented to the sound of club, a dark and hypnotic remix.
