The ninth release on the DSR-C series comes from Rhine. A new name with his roots in atmospheric techno steps up for his first solo EP. ‘De Storm’ opens the account with a loose collage of textured drums and scuffed-up synths. It makes for a bubbly groove that journeys far off into the night while ‘De Bron’ is more rooted underground, with cavernous echo chambers run through by supple bass synths and icy hi hat trails. Spooky and haunting, its a track to send shivers down your spine. Last of all, ‘Het Meer’ is a watery affair, with aqueous drips and drops, radiant pads and then more tightly coiled drums brushing up against one another to make for something atmospheric but also nicely driven. All three tracks are characterised by a rather tender and reflective mood that makes them all the more unique.
Up front and emotive tribal grooves feature on the next Blue Hour 12” as well as two ambient leaning works – forming a well balanced and mature sounding EP that nods towards the more string led/pad driven sound found on earlier releases in the series.
Detroit rooted techno tracks with morphing synths and layers of percussions and breakbeats designed for the dancefloor.
