Darkroom Dubs follow up on their latest vinyl only project - Darkroom Dubs Edits by Skinnerbox - with a continued exploration into bridging post-punk and techno. This time with a new release from a rising star in Paris blossoming underground - Parisian producer, promoter and DJ Id!r.
Clint kicks things off with darting vocoder stabs and reverberated drum whacks that build a rich sense of space. A steadily punching Disco clap and distant, eerie melodies add intrigue before swelling, filtered synth tones suffuse the tracks distinctly 80s tinged track. Monday then melds sharp percussion with trippy, delayed signals and bold, marching synth lines that sit the track comfortably in big room spaces.
No Dust In Vain drives a purposeful thud through menacing guitar plucks and horror-movie vocals as tension churns throughout. Manual Music affiliate Sigward then follows up with his interpretation of Monday as he balances brash, thundering stabs against soft, mournful sweeps bringing a rich and varied package to a close and tying up another coup for a bonafide label with over 13 years experience in the game.
