Immaculate and spacious sound design from Seth Horvitz’s Rrose project, slow ‘n’ steady on the A side before launching into a techno stroll on the flip. Despite a consistent range of timbres, Rrose manages to raise three very different offspring here; crisp, sci-fi back alleys (‘The Smallest Footprints’), simulated outdoor soundscapes (appropriately titled ‘The Ends of Weather’) and rainforest techno, damp as dewy foliage.

My affection for Rrose records is well documented on these pages so I’ll try not to go off on one like some sad fanboy and drool all over my keyboard. This is a good ‘un though… ‘The Smallest Footprints’ is like wading through a swamp of thick black tar-like sludge trying to remain out of sight of searchlights beaming down from above, while swarms of tiny robotic insects are illuminated by the radiance. ‘The Ends of Weather’ is something like a field recording from a futuristic, post-apocalyptic landscape where a cyclone blows huge gusts of contaminated radioactive air through the blue lights of hovering search vehicles, seeking out survivors. ‘Nest of Queens’ is the one for the dancers - a percussive workout straight from the Plastikman school of 1993 circa ‘Spastik’ and ‘Sheet One’ but less “dry” and with Rrose’s eerie, futuristic, atmospheric sound design bring the Hawtin template bang into 2017.
