||1.||"Between The Lines" (6:51)|
Here's something to moisten the palette of all those who enjoy atmospheric techno: a collaborative EP from Spanish stalwart Sverca and Italian ambient techno duo Voices From The Lake. Naturally, it's a hazy and mind-altering affair, with the trio first burying bustling, surprisingly intense drum beats beneath sprawling, sound design style textures on "Circa". The paranoid creepiness continues on the bolder "Isolation", where an almost constant synth loop rides a matter-or-fact techno kick-drum pattern. There's a noticeably dystopian feel about the buzzing riffs and foreboding electronics of "Beneath The Lines", while closer "Shado" sounds like a moody techno take on early British bleep, crossed with drone style soundscapes.
