INTL BLACK 004
- ALEX FALK
Next up for Rhythm Section’s club focused sub-label – 'International Black' 004 is here and it is bringing the heat - this time from Tennessee, USA. Mister Saturday Night and CGI affiliate Alex Falk delivers a 4 track EP made with one thing in mind – the dancefloor. Taking influence from the likes of Chevel, Levon, Redshape and Phase; Alex Falk achieves a singular vision merging American and European styles of Techno.
Opening with UPP, an effortless techno groove with a tight rolling bass line, classic lead stabs that pulsate, twist and turn as the heavy kick punishes the subs. BETA comes in next with a serious low end bounce – a distorted bass bump pushes the system to the max before being followed up by lower sub all swinging around a fat house kick and tight percussion – another club stomper for the serious rigs only.
The B side is a proper dub techno workout. Beginning with DAB a focused club tool whereupon sharp stabs progress and modulate throughout the track as tight kicks and hats hold down the groove. Its a serious wristbreaker that will cut through any mix. Closing the EP is GATES13, a more downtempo affair. Atmospheric chord stabs dub upon an 808 kick, a must for the warm up or warm down.
