9/10 Mike Staff review, 13 February 2014

Opening with some disjointed musique concrete style percussion samples, my initial reaction to this EP was that it was going to be "hard work", but that initial dread was quickly replaced by delight as it blossomed from that higgledy-piggledy beatmaking into an enticing, lolloping polyrhythmic groove with these cut-up drums glued onto an 808 backbone ornamented by some clarinet twiddling. 'Woman' swiftly follows, full of smoky Eastern grooves and twangy bouzouki shapes.

Duve, the duo of Soren Jahan and Ali Cakir, make music which combines "live recorded drums and instrumentation, samples from vintage 78s, internet videos and analogue electronics", and they do it in a restlessly creative and unpredictable way, veering from lollopingly clinical FourTetisms to chaotic cut up layers of relentless scrapey strings and machinegun breakbeats.

It's all incredibly cleverly pieced together, a combination of painstaking precision and maverick cut-and-paste abandon which makes for a head-scratching, genre-defying and highly listenable EP.
