R-A-G – Dreadfully Nervous [MOSDEEP029]

The R-A-G trio aka Dutch producers Ma Spaventi, G-String & Aroy Dee deliver three raw acid-jams with Aroy on the couch working the mic. The lyrics of Dreadfully Nervous are based on a Edgar Allan Poe story. ‘Dreadfully Nervous (Aryd’s Acid Mix)’ is a gurgling brew of squelchy acid with dark vocals and pinging cowbells pulling you in all directions. Coarse claps and ever more wild synths encourage you to cut loose and make for another timeless cut. ‘Dreadfully Stoned’ is more stripped back, with a rubbery arpeggiated synth the main hook over subtle, supple drums. Those dark spoken word vocals are back again and the whole thing is freaky and unsettling as a result. Last of all is the bright and glistening ‘No Soul’ with metal hits and claps and prickly acid all bursting out of dusty Chicago drums. It’s raw and sure to fire the synapses just like R-A-G productions always do.

M>O>S – Lost Digits EP [DOLLY009]

Dolly’s first release in 2012 and immediately setting a high standard for the year to come! This time Aroy Dee under his M>O>S> disguise is delivering the deepness. Present as usual are his trademark vintage synths & drums, but this goes beyond the average retro Chicago stuff… skillfull on the machines while it’s very clear the music comes from deep within. Marcel Fengler on remix duty adds a little techno punch, which perfectly tops of this very fine release.
