aDepth Audio – Rennie Foster – Witch Hazel EP – aDepth 012


aDepth012AaDepth012B



A new aDepth audio record featuring Canadian Rennie Foster, including a remix of Nomadico (DJ Dex/Underground Resistance).
The title track Witch Hazel is a 9 minute long track with no breakdown and a minimal approach to arrangement, with organic elements cycling in and out subtly rather than obviously beginning and ending. A rolling half time, tribal groove drives the power of the track with a haunting vocal sample and layers of percussion creating a heady, polyrhythmic hypnosis on the dance floor. Not since Rennie’s well known Devil’s Water has he presented such an overtly occult offering as this extremely finely crafted EP, and this song represents the initial seduction of the record to the listener very effectively.
The second track, Navigator, is a drum machine driven workout, again with a polyrhythmic and tribal vibe, this time drenched in a rich, holographic pad that morphs and moves in unexpected ways. Minimalistic in presentation, this track is bass heavy and functional for the DJ, yet artistic and emotional.
The Nomadico remix by DJ Dex of Underground Resistance takes the elements of Witch Hazel and re-constructs them in a futuristic style with a more driving kick and molten Detroit attitude. A heavier techno approach to the piece, but still intact is the melancholic atmosphere of the original and siren song of the vocal sample. This mix includes a dramatic breakdown and unique arrangement familiar to fans of Nomadico’s awesome Yaxteq label.
The last track on the EP is called Crossing The Boundary is possibly the only track in this style to sample distorted vocals usually associated with black metal, making this a very unique, perhaps polarizing, experiment in sound. Evocative of the desolation of deep space and suggestive of sonic dark matter. This track combines Rennie’s singular approach to dub techno with ambient and drone music and the result is like nothing else currently in existence.

Neighbour Recordings – Base Pilot – Life Is Rhythm EP – NBR01

RHYTHM is life and life is rhythm. Not only is it our mantra here at Neighbour Recordings, it’s also inspired the title of our debut release from brand-new production partnership and label owners Base Pilot [aka Quantec and Birke TM]. Featuring four original tracks, the Life Is Rhythm EP is a full thirty minutes of dope, low-slung house that perfectly unites the duo’s many years of shared passion for deep electronic music. Identify is the ideal introduction, swirling synths and deceptively hypnotic, it’s a proper crafty cut, whilst Ghosts leans towards a more emotive and subtle groove. Title track Life Is Rhythm is a warm and inviting ten-minute epic of chunky beats, quirky distortion and vocoded vocal snatches, whereas closing number On The Early is seriously heads-down and deep. Repeat after us; rhythm is life and life is rhythm.
