B. Put That Record on


Next up on Sudden Drop we have Dutch native and member of ESHU (along with Ivano Tetelepta) Roger Gerressen supplying the luscious beats. >Faithful< is a spritely groove with elements of dub techno and tech-house with its lush chords and forward leaning percussion really giving the track a sense of pace. Flip-sides >Put that Record On< delves deeper with a headier combination of deep bass and spoken >put that record..< refrain.

Date: Sept 2012
Format: 2 x 12″ Vinyl

Well known for his minimalistic choice of ingredients Christoper Rau somehow frees himself of any straight format. Songs full of sweetness, a glimpse of soul here, a detroit electro influence there, broken beats, breaks that are no breaks, sexyness and funk and fun.

The debut album of these two young lads with baseball hats not only honours and delves into a sound that already peaked some fifteen years ago, it also hones and elevates it, without ever falling into the Reynoldsmania trap (please see Retromania for further reference) or being old gold retold. And this is all oh-so-clear from the very start: the fine flutes of >When Its There< go straight to your heart and they do so without any self-mockery or hipster smiles as much as the gasping 303-sounds, chirping birds and healing DX-like bass sounds a few tracks later do. >Salty Days< – an allusion not to grim times, but to a certain members adoration for the crystalline mineral – is blessed with a coherence that isnt samey, with tradition that isnt leaden and a feeling that is pure.
