Bold Font Method
Press Info (English):
Herla is the collaborative effort of two Austrian producers who´ve tipped their focus of sound towards warm analogue warmth, rugged drums and earthy soundscapes achieved through an amalgamation of analogue hardware.
Bare Hands, the newly formed label of the duo, is dedicated to delivering rough british influenced Techno and other related material. After their debut-release “Shadows of a Conclusion”, Herla themselves are contributing the label’s first EP release, which contains three rugged and driving tracks for connoisseurs of a harder, distorted sound.
The release kicks off with ‘Bold Font Method’, a percussion-driven vibe whose heavy elements and dark synth line are particularly captivating. Nearly seven minutes long, this track fires up the dance floor with its energetic ride and rattling tambourine sounds. The B-side provides two equally compelling numbers. The recurring, darksome and 303-heavy bass line on ‘Raddled Scriber’ lays a solid foundation for the cracking, metallic percussion cadences interspersed with acid sounds. A rough, swaying synth added towards the middle of the track, creates an almost apocalyptic atmosphere.
‘Tossing Barrel’, the second B-side track, is carried by a snappish hi-hat. Aside from its rhythmic elements, this vibe is also distinguished by a combination of a high, short Moog-synth and a deep, coarse bassline, while a down-pitched voice sample gives it a mildly eccentric attitude.
