Three new tracks from Rrose, presented to the world thanks to Function’s label Infrastructure. Arc Unknown emerges from crystalline ambience into sheer late-night techno thump, raw and direct. And the two ‘Specimen’ tracks don’t mess with the program either. High-grade techno materials from the mighty Rrose.

New genre: Antmusic. Nothing to do with Adam and the Ants but the kind of music listened to and reviewed by our Ant. Recently voted the snappiest dressed man in the whole of lower Wharfedale, he'd know just what to say about Rrose. Unfortunately I don't but i like stretching myself, especially where dance music is concerned so I'm going to give it a go.
The opening this is a kind glistening and tight techno piece with hi pitched discordant tweets and a propulsive 4/4 kick. Later there's a hammering synth and shards of percussion littered through the mix. I'm hoping that this side spins at 45rpm and the B sides at 33rpm otherwise I've made a right pigs ear of this.
Overleaf then and I've flipped the speed. There are two 'Specimen's here labelled '2' and '3'. Where '1' went I have no idea. '2' is a nice piece of clank that steadily increases in intensity with metallic shards of percussion and some really scary discordant low end buzz. '3' uses a similar skittering drum machine beat and soon unveils all manner of playful acid squiggles for your enjoyment. They really wander about all over the place and sometimes into the red causing some pretty satisfying distortion to occur.
I presume this is really good. It sounds like it is.
There that wasn't *too* bad was it?
