9/10 according to Ant (Norman Records staff) on Thu 06 Jun, 2013
My techno bible tells me that eight out of ten techno heads said it was a good day when ever a new Rrose record found its way onto their 1210. If you consider yourself a techno freak and don't yet own any of his records then you should take your Plastikman T-shirt and promptly wipe your bottom with it. 'Waterfall' was of course that killer track from the 'Merchant Of Salt '12" that has been twisting the minds and bodies of 909 worshipping fiends into new shapes.. Here we get an early extended mix which brilliantly captures a very classic techno anthem sorta sound but manages to fit it with what's currently going down in the scene.
Berlin resident and Stroboscopic Artefacts bossMAN Lucy is that chap that a few people I know reckoned was a girl (What's in a name? that which we call Rrose, by any other name would smell as sweet. - hehehe). His mix is what I consider to be a proper remix i.e actually remixing the original tracks sounds and not just doing one of yer own tunes with a token sample from the source material and then calling it a remix. This is a fine mix, faithful to the original, slightly rearranging the pace and given some of Lucy's own dark dubbed out flavour.
Plus there's bonus action too with a new ten minute Rrose track called 'Shrouds'. As the title suggests this one is dark, mysterious and destined to destroy global dance floors. No shit this will take the fucking roof off any techno club guaranteed.

Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
