DOPAMINE CLOUDS (PURPLE TRANSLUCENT VINYL)
12" Vinyl D
Etui Records welcomes Dub mastermind Van Bonn
ETUI welcomes dub techno wizard Van Bonn with his ep ‘Dopamine Clouds’. The German born lives currently in northern Europe where he draws a lot of his inspiration from his walks along the fjords, adjacent forests and open fields.
The three tracks present different facets of Van Bonn’s sound palette. The eponymous opener is a dub techno monolith. Every element is introduced after the other to generate a dub heavy groove before the break welcomes harmonious pads and contrasting dub effects that carry the listener throughout the time left of this 10:50 minutes emotional journey.
The Drill showcases heavily modulated chords on a forward pushing groove spiced with tonal melancholic sounds. Van Bonn only uses a very few elements in Blurred Submission - a slowed down dubby affair that moves away from the 4/4 kick to make space for deeply processed chords and dub signals that call for the remote future.
Van Bonn - Dopamine Clouds will be out on purple-translucent vinyl in black inside out cover incl. colored sticker. The artwork is based on a painting by Van Bonn and edited by timconduit.
