Is WeMe the new Rephlex? The Belgian imprint has been embracing Rephlex artists for a few years now, but since the label has shut up shop WeMe are keeping the fire burning with releases this week from Jodey Kendrick and this here 12” from MNLTH aka Dave Monolith / Photodementia -- His second slab of wax on the imprint.
Oh man this is soooo AFX, like ‘VBS.Redlof.B’ vibes galore. Depending on your perspective a; clone/ tribute/ rip off/ whatever. Even the label art is well Analord. Regardless, what producer David Barnard may lack in originality he compensates for in production skills and really nails that melancholy / euphoric balance. I can’t knock the man really as shit like this aint easy to do, plus I’m rubbish at everything, I can’t even take out the bins without cocking it up and personally I think there’s a lot shitter things you could be heavily inspired by... I certainly wouldn’t be sat in the corner at a rave moaning about it.
These dark times call for a more utopian vision of electronic music and this EP put a grin on my solemn chops so he’s clearly doing something right. Still I can’t help but feel this artist has more to give if he follows his own path.
