Boomkat Product Review:
Dekmantel grip Australia’s Roza Terenzi for a fine showcase of her balmy, “quasi-cosmic” take on electro, ambient house and early rave nostalgia
Since emerging to acclaim with the ‘Planet Euphorique’ 12”, over the last year she’s dished up at least another 5 releases, leading to this, her highest profile release.
‘3.I.Y.’ gives a a nervy, range-finding start with clipped, squirrelly electro and breakbeat rhythms establishing cosmic coordinates, while ‘Bricks’ dips on the downstroke with pendulous ambient house groove and piquant nods to Arpanet. ‘Freak n Tweak’ then brings some late ‘80s hip hop swagger and floating bleeps recalling early B12, while ‘Open Me’ follows thru in a dreamy Detroit-via-UK style.
