Hatch : Arcanoid [S27-168]

“A heavy-hitting masterpiece that deserves some recognition. Hatch (aka London’s Eugene Rowlett) could have easily been pulled for a Gescom or Fear Ratio collaboration where large sandblasted electro rhythms smash against acid, funk, hip-hop, and ultra wide basslines.

Eleven tracks spread across old-school breaks and low-end vibrations, Hatch manifests the grit, debris, and robust machine rhythms from start to end. A stream of melodic slivers glide through each piece as thick drums punch through at every angle. Some tracks are faster-paced electro shards such as the aptly titled and powerful ‘Hatch-Hop’ which could easily be its own genre—massive kick-drums, heavy bass thuds, and a menacing groove.

‘Dopple’ drenches the above-mentioned styles into the shadows with a darker surrounding strain. ‘Extroliated’ maneuvers its acid line through snappy percussive rhythms that mid-90s Plastikman fans would have eaten up. Slowing the production to a walking pace, ‘Block’ drives through downtempo corridors where ambient sheets and wind instruments float to the surface while heavyweight drums take center-stage.
There are a few samples strewn in here and there as noted on the excellent ‘We Can Make It’—where wide-angled percussive jolts bust through the acidic undercurrent. Arcanoid is definitely a highlight for 2018, its breaks, bass, 808s, and hatch-hop blend of graffiti electro is a welcomed addition to the digital library. (igloomag.com)”

Ucleden : Do Not Stand At My Grave [BRQ124]

“Back then, when Ucleden brainstormed titles for his new Broque-EP and came up with Do not stand at my grave, no one could have known that the recently passed US senator John McCain might have said exactly this to his former boss Donald Trump at some point. We also have no idea, whom Andrei Nedelcu aka Ucleden himself actually has been addressing with this request. What we can state with absolute certainty though: the title track of his new EP combines a blissful and relaxed Balearic vibe with a relentless drive on the dancefloor. The five variations of the theme transport it into different corners of club music, in between acid, trance and swinging deep house, but never lose sight of the warm atmosphere of the original track. Next to four versions contributed by Anrdei himself, the final remix is provided by Max Cavalerra who sticks to his signature sound and offers the darkest variant of the original theme, which shuffles slowly but steady through the echo space, but without ever losing touch with the original track. So much about the hard facts: we leave all further interpretation happily to you as esteemed listeners.”
