BATTISTA

Some Flow With...

Uaudio Records

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £8.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: UA02.2

Berlin's Battista brings the dirty house swing on 'Some Flow With…' via his Uaudio label. The title cut is frankly rude as fxxk, fixing foul mouthed samples to jagged dub chords in a pendulous groove running riot with syncopated subs/claps and natty tabla infusions. John Swing chimes in with a more rugged, bucking dub before Battista gets back on it with the crumpled disco sample jam 'Listen (Club Version)' and the puckered peacock strut of 'Dance - Me'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: RAW1001

Raw Ten is a smart new house project and label from the guys behind Pittsburgh Track Authority. They make a fine start with the deeper vocal house burn of 'Funny Thing' including writing and production assistance from !!!'s Nic Offer and coolly distinctive vocal by Lou Tanning inna throwback to classic Innercity styles for KMS. Flipside, the Detroit Tech Remix ups the sub-bass/kick-drum pressure and jettisons the vocal in favour of hypnotic lead synth.

Following on from Line Idle's duties with local DJ hero, Teamy, in the Wrong Island duo, he pares down to a sort of Afro-centric minimalism here with the chiming rhythmelodic cadence of 'Woodblocks' and the swaying slow-house patter of 'Time And Time Again', leaving the chunky kicks and crystalline modular tweaks of 'When My Love Is Too Much To Bear' to unwind and refract across the B-side and a dancefloor near ye.

Apparently "born and raised in the Bavarian wilderness" and "the first forest dwelling animal to use the prefix 'Deejay'", gives pretty much f**k all away, but a quick listen to either track should trigger trigger some clues. On 'Natural' they swirl head high piano chords and rugged breakbeat house bounce landing somewhere between Martyn, Redshape and Shed, whilst 'Unnatural' rushes up with flanging metallic chords and swung garage breaks like the nexx generation of Joy O's 'Hyph Mngo' amped by Four Tet. It's probably just Dave The Drummer having a laugh, though.
