Stefan Ringer is usually associated to funky, swinging soulful kinda house with a rough edge but his new Black Suede moniker has replaced that for a darker, more ethereal sound texture. Debuting for CGI Records, the servings begin with "Connect Like 2 Ways", a granular techno driller-thriller with subtle nuances of soul; "Stimulus (Dead)" is an utterly stripped drum machine jam with a nervous percussion and otherworldly atmospherics. On the flip, "7713GH" is rough and ready, swinging and aimed at the floor, while "Purgatory" is deeper, more swollen and rather hypnotic on the ol' cortex. Four stunning and diverse techno excursions.
