Boomkat Product Review:
BleeD boss Volte-Face alloys with Daniel Avery as Rote, backed with DJ Nobu and Svreca remixes.
The duo clearly bring the best out of each other here, amounting to the ruggedest and most affective work in either producer's cache.
Rote 1 pursues percolated tribal patterns in 5/4 thru a haze of white noise and Silent Servant-esque synth pads, complemented by a fluidly tripping remix by Japan's DJ Nobu.
Rote 2 is more spacious, carving out space between the rolling, airborne breaks of Ilian Tape's Andrea and Zenker Brothers, and the techno-step of MDR's Answer Code Request, whilst reserving a flush of poignant UK techno pads for just the right moment. Svreca's remix swipes off the soppy bit for a proper, dry techno grind.
Support from Blawan, Silent Servant, Matrixxman, Nina Kraviz, Cosmin TRG.
