Beware of Shells

‘Beware of Shells’ is a five-track EP of lysergic techno bangers from the London-based artist Rrose. These are grooves stretched way out, sprawling tracks that emphasise digital muck and writhing modulation. It’s a release that comes from her Eaux label and pursues a bloody-minded approach to the techno genre, happy to divert away from what’s commonly expected with deviations into tripping drone.

The Ends of Weather

Immaculate and spacious sound design from Seth Horvitz’s Rrose project, slow ‘n’ steady on the A side before launching into a techno stroll on the flip. Despite a consistent range of timbres, Rrose manages to raise three very different offspring here; crisp, sci-fi back alleys (‘The Smallest Footprints’), simulated outdoor soundscapes (appropriately titled ‘The Ends of Weather’) and rainforest techno, damp as dewy foliage.

Rrose & Lucy
The Lotus Eaters II

This particular decade will probably be remembered as one where the cutting edge of techno became severely twisted. Riding the sharpest point are Rrose and Lucy, who come together on this EP to unveil a typically claustrophobic, swirling mass of dance floor disorientation. Muscular, ethereal and as sideways as you like.

For Aquantice

12” vinyl on Eaux, limited to 500 copies. A-side track Levitate sets the tone for this 12”, with its crazy, earworming polyrhythmic shuffles that just constantly evolve in a way that Mark Fell would be proud. Comparatively Vellum seems to slow, but it really hasn’t at all. All three tracks are hypnotic techno, but careful, I already feel mania coming on.

Rrose x Tujurikkuja

Tujurikkuja is the pairing of Joshua Kit Clayton and Chris Dixon (variously involved in such eclectically-named projects as Death Sentence Panda!, ~scape and Orthlorng Musork), and Omertá is a nice meaty chunk of analogue synth improvisation, backed with a dancefloor version from Sandwell District’s Rrose. White vinyl on Eaux.

Vanishing Pools

Techno experimentalist Rrose presents Vanishing Pools, a five-track, 30+ minute EP that is longer than several albums I own. No matter though, these are pieces that really benefit from being able to stretch out a little. Dramatically crafted with a tight ear for texture. Vanishing Pools is released on the artist’s own imprint, Eaux.
