- Motormouth Variations by Rrose X Bob Ostertag
9/10 Brian Staff review, 27 July 2011
Nowt sticks around on SD very long, it's one of the very best techno labels out there these days. Minimal but powerful 4/4 odysseys for feet and minds. This Rrose character had an Antony-endorsed 12" out a few weeks back that sold out in seconds. Just as well they've repressed it in time to ship with his new collaboration/remix project with modular synth maestro Bob Ostertag! I've never heard of dear old Bob but this weighty bassbin thud-a-thon on side one is forged from very pure ingredients - namely an abdomen-bothering kickdrum and tons of scintillating cosmic effects with some gentle, distant aquatic dub techno ripples. It sounds so good on these shit headphones I'd be quite scared to hear it over the much rejoiced Berghain Funktion 1 system that our Ant dreams of buying for his front room. The mix of 'Arms and Legs' over on side two appears like chattering android acid techno with the rhythm slowed down to a dense dubstep stalk, these wibbling analogue chirrups sounding so otherworldly and delightfully strange. This isn't so techno sounding though, more like brooding, muscular thick-skinned electronica. More weighty tech-scapery on the variation of 'Pointillism', once again built simply with a pummeling Maurizio-intense kick-drum at the forefront whilst more dubbed-out cosmic goodness ricochets all over the ship. This is weighty, zen-like stuff indeed. I'm having one, I really don't care about my over-stuffed shelves anymore! The bonus 10" is comprised of some of Ostertag's original modular synth experiments which these deep and futuristic sounding 12"s are inspired by.
