LABEL: Mote Evolver
(Luke Slater's L.B. Dub Corp Remix)
Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver label is not pulling any punches. Having shaken the techno scene to its boots last month with the release of Ortin Cam’s no-holes-barred “Carnage”, the label moves on to their funky 13th release.
The name Cari Lekebusch is synonymous with what has made techno the musical powerhouse that it has become. Globally recognized as a founding force behind the Swedish techno movement alongside the triumvirate of Adam Beyer, Jesper Dahlbäck and Joel Mull, Lekebusch’s distinctive musical style and creative integrity has graced leading label from Drumcode to Soma to Harthouse and Turbo and spawned a career that has maintained over nearly two decades.
Spindizzy is a deftly crafted funked-up tech house track. Constructed from a palette of harmonically aligned keys, bass and horns; its intensity comes from the measured way in which each element is given the space to breath its own energy into the mix. Pacey but musical, subtle yet memorable; this is a standout record.
Luke Slater adding his bass sodden L.B Dub Corp twist to the track completes the package. Deeply dubbed-out tribal rhythms take the mix on a more left-of centre path that winds through a busy soundscape of atmospheric acoustics that seem to breathe in deeply before being exhaled in a release of firing percussion.
