Incl. Janeret Remix !
Metroline Limited 100th release! OMG!…We would have never expected to reach such an important milestone when we started our label from a pub in North-West London 13 long years ago! Passion and dedication brought us to where we are now with the aim to keep delivering fresh and exciting electronic music as we did back in 2007. There is one guy who has been with us for almost all of the way through, starting with his first release for Metroline LImited back in 2008, and that is Aurelien Riviere aka Doubtingthomas. It’s been a few years since his oustanding Capharnaum EP was released and 5 years on, that release is still a very much in demand minimal techno classic. We are very happy to have Aurelien back, this time teaming up with the very talented Russian producer and good friend Wyro. Our tasty package is completed by non-other than super hot French producer Janeret on remix duties. Aurelien’s trademark sound is present throughout the 3 original tracks in this EP although this time his sound has been ‘maximised’ from teaming up with Wyro and with an injection of funk and good dose of peak time action. On the A-side, the opener ‘Prisme’ stands out for its razor sharp machine funk rhythm and his Positive Education style funky b-line while Unten is pure peak time hands in the air synth perfection over a shuffle’d up minimal techno groove. The B-side sees Janeret take Unten up a notch and create a deep tech-house monster where an immense kick bound and leaps through a beautifully rich and deep bassline while hypnotic pads and super crisp drums bring things forward nicely. A pounding, and truly exhilarating, track. Distancia dives deeper. The track start with a single note bassline and a surgical rhythm made of single bleeps and clicks and then develops into a more intricate arrangement made of delicate synths, atmospherics and the usual expert drum programming.
