We’ve got some very tasteful techno in this week from the mysterious Anthony Naples, last seen remixing Fourtet and this time showing off his minimal skills in a quartet of crisp, warm and restrained cuts that he made all by himself. The opening title track has womby synth drones and quite a lively beat, kind of a slight early Chicago house feel mixed with Germanic techno, while for the remainder of side A ‘Pueblo’ impresses with subtle beatmaking and a classy little jazz piano sample.
Over on the other side the EP’s lengthiest track ‘Busy Signal’ gets a bit experimental, with a simple kick and hi-hat rhythm with peculiarly shifting gates and filters and reverb and phasing, later joined by a simple three-note synth line and occasional cut-up vocal samples. It actually turns out much more dancefloor friendly than the intro suggests. Then to close ‘La Cuarta’ has a hypnotically shuddering cosmic synth loop and some slightly off-beat sub bumps. This second side seems much more experimental than the first but it’s all pretty interesting listening.
