8/10 Laurie Staff review, 29 April 2015
Skip Intro? OK! With 15 minutes to review this it’s a necessity, but always nice to have permission. Another Trilogy Tapes release sees Lorenz Lindner pretend to be a furry thing called ‘Mix Mup’ which is depicted on the cover. Haven’t heard this one’s stuff before but TTT can surely be trusted.
An off-kilter groove kicks this off (well, after the passable intro) with kicks playing off the toms to make some funky patterns, being joined by some afterclubby pads that sets this up for some very early morning spinning. Getting quite a Swamp81 vibe off this due to those funk/tech toms and slightly slower pace. A2 is perhaps even less straight, even bringing some reverse kicks and bubbling ridges of hats in little bursts per bar. Some deep dubbed out layers clunk away calmly at ease with their anonymity.
A more primetime slot at B1, still quite slow but steady and relatively constant, a little speed on this and it’ll be close to an old school techno banger tinged with, but not hidden by broken beats. Some weird sporadic reverbed synth wails in distress. It’s back to the style of A2 for the second on side B, gentle pads caressing the introspective beat while a...sax?... noodles around in the distance. Interesting, non-traditional stuff.
