Sales Note: The third part of the ruts vinyl mini compilation series features 4 tracks, searching for common and less common grounds between functionality and abstraction. Immer.Chic kicks things off with a genuine techno trip called The End Of Eternity. A dark and futuristic track, with a stumbling groove that stands out because of its atmospheric density and its unconventional sound design. Vakula is a man of rhythm, musically raised by his grandmother, who introduced him to african american soul and jazz music. This education has had its consequences, as is shown on We Shall Dance. Basically an amalgam of jittering and spacy sounds, Vakula layers different grooves and soulful samples over a house rhythm that directly aims for the legs. On the B-side, two more established producers step into the limelight. Paul David Rollmann is a man of many trades. Here, under his Even Tuell moniker, he delivers an easy but also unsettled track. Thanden Strakk is a mid-tempo shoegazer of a house track. Softly tapping beats, an organ playing chords in the background as well as a light but dissonant synth chord form the framework of this psycho-trip of a track. Move D & Benjmin Brunn are clearly soulmates. After superb releases on Smallville and Bine, they are featured here with a track that fully exploits the possibilities of stereo. A wonderful piece that communicates a spatial deepness, echoing Basic Channel.
