7/10 Souki 01 August 2014

And suddenly there he is, slithering out of the night unexpectedly like an unknown creature emerging from the storm drain; Roberto Clementi with a second instalment of his starkly-rendered Bonton series.  As is to be expected there are no radical departures in sound here and the format is identical: two stone-cold dusty dub tech cuts fresh from the underground bunker, backed up by an esteemed and aptly credible Berghain-resident rework.

‘Barrell’ kicks things off all neat and close-up with tiny iridescent audio-droplets, clicks and, of course, the hallmark sound of somebody hitting a piece of corrugated iron at the other end of a giant industrial space, before opening up and welcoming in the grey skies and gurgling plug holes and static fizz you knew were inevitably waiting at the drop.  ‘Traps’ slows it down a little, taking it very much towards Substance & Vainqueur ‘Immersion’ territory, as if the fact that the whole Basic Channel idiom being a massive reference point wasn’t clear enough.  The amusingly-named Norman Nodge deploys the less-is-more approach in his take on ‘Bonton’, stripping it back to just a truncated bass loop and skeletal kick and hats, whilst letting a scattering of percussive fragments bounce around in the space between.
