Boomkat Product Review:
Longtime Shitkatapult and Meteosound crew member Lars Fenin delivers his second album since 2005's 'Grounded' with 'Been through'. Alongside Daniel Meteo, Anders Ilar and Pole amongst others Fenin has consistently foraged in the dub undergrowth to roughly define the Berlin dub-tech aesthetic, aiming for a calculated post-dub-techno approach that still clings to the basic tenets of dub minimalism but enhanced by updated production processes and open to incorporating new rhythms and styles from hiphop to electronica. With vocal assistance from reggae singer Gorbi, Fenin moves through dubbed mutations on discoid electro on 'breakin', tricky shufflers on 'colourfields', moody melodic steppers on 'Complain' feat Scorcha and ace dub tech on album highlight 'Red wine'. There's a wonderfully inviting early evening dub haze about the whole album which definitely makes it worth a look in, give it a crack like.
