"A bad tune by FD taken from his EP on Soul:R. This guy is on a roll. Serious."
Olivier Mateu’s transition from hammering techno madness as one half of F-Com stalwarts The Youngsters into the slinky Rodriguez Jr has been a captivating one, never more so than on this subtly substantial four-tracker for Anja Schneider and Ralf Kollmann’s Mobilee, the home of his Latin alter-ego. 'Persistence of Vision' oozes class, all arpeggios and a dirty bassline to die for. The percussive 'Aldebaran' is a joy too, but opt for the rolling thunder of 'Mustang', its Detroit stabs rhythmic and roundly irresistible. Good show.
Straight fire from Santos Resiak, dusty New York grooves and rolling basses from Flumo Recordings new compilation Golden Harvest
Always a label to watch, the Black Acre imprint is a constant source of musical inspiration and sure fiya sonic weaponry of the highest rate. This new Lurka EP is no exception, with the weird dancehall riddim of ‘Holding’, with its metallic percussive nodules and arcane infusions of space. ‘Nah So’ starts out with a plod before pulling out a Glock and shooting you in the face. So thank God ‘KMT’ pops up to slap a salve of aloe vera on the sore bits for a soothing if boom-bapped antidote.
