Rooms is a brand new label looking to add some freshness to the global underground landscape. The first release comes from Doomwork, who have been making beats since 2008 and on labels like Cocoon and Ovum and play headline gigs all over the world. First up here, Cantico is seven and a half minutes of stern, steely techno for dark rooms. It has rugged drums and skewed synths bringing soul and scale and the whole thing cannot fail to carry away the dance floor.
Second up is Notes of Desert, another big cut but this time one with more bounce. It has vamping chord stabs laid over the top and real grit in the hi hats. Slowly consuming mind, body and soul, it is a groovy but no nonsense number that will get the floor rocking in no time.This is a great way to kick off a great new label.
