yeah. This is what it's all about. A split 12" from
two wonderfully talented IDM outfits, neither of whom get the
recognition they deserve. What a treat!
Side A of this beautiful twelve-incher houses 3 songs by Line 47,
a DJ / laptop composer who started off his career (oddly enough) as
the drummer for noise/post-rock outfit Mrs. Frisbee in
1994. His first track on this record, "Quavuun Eyes,"
takes a very lovely, relaxing approach, blending token IDM beats with
electro-orchestral melody. "Idel Ruins," meanwhile, is
tightly donned in Plaid, providing even more relaxation.
"Vectoise Un Brks" follows with some complex Squarepusher
mechanics (I think "Come On My Selector" is sampled,
actually), eventually calming down for a warm finish. Clearly Line
47 has mastered both the calm and energetic ends of his sound.
Rusuden takes over for side B. His side starts off
with "Swolnip," a complex, yet profoundly funky number with
a slightly dark undertone. "Baloo is a Bear" then
comes on in an eerie haze of beats and Orbital-esque melodic
abstraction. "Penki-ki" give a nod to Pyrolator
by way of some well-executed
animal samples (dogs barking, crows cawing, etc.) Rusuden's
final effort, "Afterdinnermintz," is a short bit-by-bit,
almost minimal techno number that is sure to get dancefloors movin'.
Overall, this is a fantastic IDM 12" by two relatively new
faces on the techno scene. Perk your ears, baby.
