New one from Jacques Renault mixing up nu-disco and electro styles, with the aid of Emperor Machine featuring on key track, ‘I Like It’.
Incredibly perhaps, these four tracks come from the TIP universe’s hundredth album release. The sampler sports four numbers, with Rikki & Martian Arts’ own ‘Wave’, Duotekk’s ‘Zlow’, ‘One Time’ from Born Sleepy and possibly most gratifyingly ‘Into the Vortex’ from the back-on-board Man With No Name. Looking for psy FX excess? Keep walking. On the other hand, for dark, fabulously sculpted trance with Goan spice…
Lorca's second outing on Breach's Naked Naked, and the second Naked Naked release reviewed on this page. Loving your work, chaps. Sam Cassman is on blazing form here. 'Calcutec' sounds simple enough, but half the joy of this synth-loaded, shuffling monster is peeling back the layers. They are many. Similarly, 'Ndlamu' is ostensibly a clattering glut of African-influenced drums and a bassline. But though the palette seems limited, creating something as captivating as this is a feat. It's devastating.
The key to success is to always move forward, something that this duo clearly know. Improving with every release Gerra & Stone have reached a new level with this EP. 'Too Deep' can do little to explain the intensity of this monstrous bass. The drum pattern has just enough life to lift itself to the drone of receptiveness which has become a staple go-to for the minimal/tech end of the spectrum. A standout track.
