Noleian Reusse: Black Tekno EP
(Love What You Feel)
The stand-out tracks are A1 and B1. The former is downtempo and surprisingly jazzy. On the latter, an analogue bass loop and simple synth line are infiltrated by wormy 8-bit squelches.
VA: Music from Mathematics Vol. 7
Jamal continues to curate his series of orphaned tracks from (mainly) European producers. “Jupiter Blues” by Echo 106 is the highlight. Lush percussion and complex electronics evoke Warp’s Artificial Intelligence compilation. Also featured are Vagon Brei, Gentl3men, and John Heckle.
Plant43: Burning Decay
This is solid electro in the Drexciyan style. “Gravitational Collapse” is an epic instrumental with plenty of treble detail. “Tidal Locking” features wonderfully fat bass. On other tracks, vocals are occasionally buried in the mix.
