Boomkat Product Review:
The gray area sound just jumped the shark with Von Grall’s clunky batch for Samurai Horo.
“Parisian producer Brice Groulier has built a reputation as one of the new guard of techno artists to watch closely with consistently high quality sub aquatic, rhythm shifting Techno for labels like Semantica, Midgar, Planet Rhythm, and Modularz. While looking for music that integrated with our Grey Area releases, we found ourselves blending more Von Grall tunes than any other artist, so a Horo release was requested. What originally began as a 4 track EP bloomed into an 8 track debut album that sees Von Grall expand his style beyond the muscular but hazy rhythmic mist he has become known for.
The title track Infinitum opens the LP like a contemplative bubble. Hyper Density and Inside are pensive, evocative jogs, while Emerald City and Disturbance ramp up the energy and will be the most favoured floor tunes from Infinitum. Antonym Allegory combines the Von Grall rhythmic bounce with an emotive pad that will echo in your mind long after listening. Motel closes the LP with a quirky, almost joyful flow.
Infinitum wanders confidently into new ground for Von Grall and cements him as a versatile and singular voice in Techno.”
