After a few EP releases on L.I.E.S Terekke finally drops the big one after 5 years of experimentation with beats and basic equipment. It's a slow moving burble of an album, eight patient tracks which blend simple beatwork with dubby atmospheres. Standout is the gorgeous 'Need U' a lengthy drift into dub techno perhaps with nods to the dubbier end of To Rococo Rot blending in perfectly with 'Swim' a beatless aquatic piece of minimal hazed out dub.
Everything Terekke does is simple. There's not masses of overdubs here - the remit seems to be to get some nice beats and add atmospheric textures then pretty much leave as is. There's some lovely pieces here....'Mix91' is a beautiful blend of reverbed piano along with skittery beats. It has a beautiful bucolic feel with insouciant rhodes piano adding texture and atmosphere. Only 'Padi' even gets close to approaching the dancefloor, it's thumping beat at odds with the relaxed sounds around.
But this is a pretty gorgeous way to spend half an hour. The record quietly goes about it's business drifting from hither to thither taking the listener off into a dreamy sound world. Perfect companion to this week's Deepchord releases.
