rRoxymore Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
A nice mixed bag from Batu’s excellent Timedance imprint. Gearing up for the release of the label’s first compilation, Patina Echoes, this three-track sampler brings together old heads and new faces under the banner of forward-thinking soundsystem techno. rRoxymore and Chekov both turn in busy club jams, while Timedance veteran Bruce takes a left-turn into blissful weightless sound design.
rRoxymore’s third 12” for Don’t Be Afraid (Karen Gwyer, Semtek) is another installment in her Thoughts Of An Introvert series. Part 2 displays a bit more zip than the first release, bringing new sounds and aesthetics into the producer's already rather leftfield techno takes. ‘Run … Feet’, for instance, is a zany double-time jam that has a little DJ Paypal in it.
rRoxymore delivers three mid-length tracks on this here 12” EP for Don’t Be Afraid. Thoughts of an Introvert, Pt. 1 is indeed kind of introverted in its production style, with a rolling, pulsating electronic landscape that seems to be driving at something deep within. Still, could definitely get moving to those drums.
