A four-track release from Doubler on the appropriately-named Confuse House label. Alter VU does have the fundamentals of house music, but the edges are fuzzy and stranger things are going on, so that this can’t necessarily be called dancing music. Tasty quasi-ambient unhouse sounds. Alter VU is released in a limited edition of 200 12” copies.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 February 2017
I’m enjoying this. I think.
Because I’m so confused I’m not sure if I’m playing it at the right speed, or what day it is…or whether I put my trousers on this morning. The label moniker is perfect for this frayed at the edges take on house music. It bleeps and bloops in the sort of dreamy way you expect from today’s kids who look at classic ‘90s house through a prism of distorted nostalgia. There beats here are so simple they are silly but the dreamy and grainy synths are delicious sun dappled treats, kind of reminding me of that first Patricia record or the earlier work of Huerco S.
Sometimes it’s like listening to a house night from the car park. Or a ghetto blaster in a subway. It’s muffled but that’s how I like my house music. Long live wool.
