“It’s finally Summertime, but press play, close your eyes and you’d never be able to tell. Lamont Kohner‘s third single for RP lands with a roomy bass pulse and a dusty loop that slowly splits open to reveal white noise-crusted dub chords and a thumping traincar rhythm. BECKONS does what it says on the tin, with minimal side effects, drawing us into the seedy nightlife of Kohner’s noir cityscapes and neon vapors. Following the irresistible groove of BECKONS is CLOSE IT, a slightly more traditional dub techno affair, recalling the Detroit strains of Deepchord and Echospace while also conjuring a thick-as-a-brick rhythmic foundation that goes even further back to the first couple Maurizio 12″s in Germany. The whole thing congeals into that trademark Kohner shuffle, and we’re once again sitting back in a darkened taxi, window half open, smoke wafting out into the greasy streets. Falling beneath the music’s spell, you feel compelled to close the window – we’re doing something intimate in here.”
We are honored to get support from Girių Dvasios, the mastermind behind the pioneering label Cold Tear Records, which has already delighted us with over a hundred first-class releases, some of which can also be downloaded as free music.
“Cold Tear Records is an electronic music label that specializes in dub techno, deep techno and ambient music. The label was founded in 2010 by Evaldas Azbukauskas, an electronic music producer from Lithuania known as Giriu Dvasios, Tamsis, 101 and SoulSonic. The motivation behind starting the label was to create a platform to release founder’s own music, but also other talented artists. Today Cold Tear Records is a well established label in the dub techno scene and the most active and productive label in Lithuania.”
