DEAD CERT. Records
13th October 2020
(Fossil Archive aka Roberto Remix)
DEAD CERT. Records is a label linked to the well known website deathtechno.com ran by Jack! Who? in the UK. A diverse palette has seen the previous releases feature music from artists including Audio Injection / Truncate, Paul Mac, TWR72, Echoplex and Petter B, to name but a few.
Uruguay-based William Arist returns to DEAD CERT. following his fierce vinyl only contribution “Cyanophyta” that has gathered pace as an essential DJ weapon. Having released on labels like Animal Farm, Vinicius Honorio’s Liberta, Deano (ZA)’s Knowledge Imprint, his very own Perseverancia and soon Marco Faraone’s UNCAGE, he also lists support by the likes of Ben Sims, Charlotte de Witte and Tensal.
He has delved into his vast production archive especially for DEAD CERT. and alongside three original works is a remix from Fossil Archive aka Roberto.
Fossil Archive also goes by the name Roberto to many and has a back catalogue including Radio Slave’s Rekids, Mike Dehnert’s Fachwerk, Emmanuel’s ARTS, On Edge Society and collaborations with the late Trevino and Roman Lindau for example, his huge, consistent and educated sound is much loved.
“Drastic” kicks things off with a raw, angular jam, wrapped in analogue grit and infectious electronic funk that tears forward with a jovial heart at its core.
Second up is “Desire” that opts for a different approach. The rolling bottom end, pulsing phasers and deep chords add a warm sensitivity to its otherwise energetic framework.
Fossil Archive aka Roberto goes full throttle with his rework, jackin’ at its best with both feet on the dance floor and a style that will defy anyone not to succumb to its monumental influence.
Showing his production skills in full effect, “Dystopia” is a lesson in abstract grooves and rich sound design, for those who like leftfield techno dripping in character and creativity.
