Form And Function
23rd November 2018
vinyl & digital
Form and Function presents the second outing in their FORM series. A series that focusses on the more deep and transcendent side of the techno spectrum.
Movement I contains 3 original tracks and one remix starring freshman Atis and pretty well-known duo Cassegrain.
Movement I starts with “Ismene”, a slow but progressive and dubby techno piece that is filled with deep northern and tribal influences. The variety of different sounds fill up the eerie landscape, assisted by a range of subtle percussive elements.
Entheogen goes a notch faster in tempo without compromising on atmosphere. It’s a tearjerker of a track that with an emphasizing sub-bass that flawlessly grows into a bleepy sonic adventure.
On the B-side, we get 2 pieces that are in stark contrast with the A-side. “Samael” lifts off with a lot of pulsing energy, transferring into a deep sound that sets the mood for the complete track. The reverberating pads and percussion really drive the track forward thanks to some intelligent panning and programming.
As a final piece there’s the Cassegrain remix of Samael. Unfalsified power techno that keeps hinting to the deep sounds of the original track, poured into a body of perfect harmonics and playing the mind with rhythmic repetition.
The digital bonus “Shifting Zone” is an dubby drum & bass track that uses reverbs and delays as the central point to mark the end of a hypnotic release, backed by ingenious percussion.
