It's always a good day for me whenever Roger Semsroth unleashes a new 12" under his Sleeparchive alias. This is the first 12" in a two part series following his debut release for Tresor 'Ronan Point'.
The A1 chugs along with a big old kick propelling distant unsettling industrial sounds. It's a functional and reduced slice of hypnotic minimal techno. A2 is an excersise in trademark Sleeparchive disorientating bleeps, the repetition becomes mesmerising with a very subtle almost acidic bassline some hiss and looped hi-hats. It's somewhere between Jeff Mills' more minimal productions and Robert Hood.
B1 is a stone cold dancefloor killer with driving kick and hi-hats and a proper nasty evil EBM inspired lead synth that means business. Somehow once hypnotised by the loops it feels creepily like the track is getting heavier and heavier , pure illusion through repetition.
B2 is a straight up Robert Hood inspired cut sounding like a lower tempo version of 'Minus' from Hood's classic 'Internal Empire' LP which also was released by Tresor.
All functional DJ tools but like a lot of techno lacking in originality slightly, still this guy proves time and time again that this kind of minimalism can be extremely compelling. Fans of early Downwards should check.
