Bass Culture welcomes Frenchman Leo Pol to the fold for this fresh new fourtracker full of analogue vibes. Leo’s penchant for synthesisers and the warmth of his beloved machines is evident throughout this new release, with a retro soul spliced with modern sensibilities and, of course, visions of the future.
Things get off to an energetic start with ‘Caliente’, a track that combines a killer main riff, scintillating pads and steampowered percussion to really get those feet moving. This is followed by ‘Fnc Burning’, which totally slips the script with its offkilter rhythm and UKinfluenced breakbeatesque sound. Get ready for a sublime breakdown, with more UK rave stylings in the second half… fresh!
On the flip side we get ‘Dark Outside, which harks back to the early days of postelectro Detroit. Those formative years when masters like Juan Atkins were the soundtrack of Motor City… from the hushed, silky vocal to the cosmic bleeps, this is a homage to the ghosts of techno’s past, with a contemporary sheen.
Finally, we finish up with ‘Techyes No!’, a dark, marauding stomper with a menacing atmosphere and spinetingling strings to really amplify the eerie feeling that pervades throughout.
A diverse, yet cohesive collection of killer cuts from the young master Leo Pol and another superb Bass Culture release. Only the finest from D’Julz’s excellent label…
