- Dots Vol. 2 by Various
7/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 24 October 2014
We've got an international four-way on this latest 12" on Uncharted Audio, the second in a series of compilation 12"s showcasing the finest contemporary house and techno producers from around the globe. The last one had artists from the UK, New Zealand, Italy and the USA, and this time around the cuts are coming in from Croatia, Finland, France and, once more, the UK, with the declared intention of joining the dots between these disparate scenes and artists.
We start out with Davor's 'Ride With Me', a slow-burning and paranoid bit of electronica with weird muddied and phased piano chords, crisply skipping beats and unsettling little chopped and processed vocal details. Ukkonen's more concise 'Terophase' closes side A with a thudding techno pulse and gradually morphing layers of granular synth melody and glassy toneswells, with the rhythms getting increasingly intricate and awkward before cutting away to reveal the glacial purity of the synths beneath.
Flip it and Shlomo has some woozily pulsating techno with washes of alien synth wobbling around over a precise, clicky beat with its muffled pulse belied by energetic and twitchy details. Finally Langer closes things off with some bloopy acid techno fun with bright trebly Roland loops and jazzy keyboard twiddling - it's both acid and jazz, but it's not acid jazz. Cool split, bit of something for everybody (who likes electronic music) here.
