Since serving up one of last year's most memorable albums in the self titled LP for Prologue, Voices Of The Lake duo Donato Dozzy and Neel have tread carefully, contributing only a track to Mike Parker's Geophone series. They adopt a similar method with this release for Concrete that sees them drop one production which is complemented by a flipside remix. Very much remaining in the techno netherworld, "531 Hz" is a ranging cut made epic by a vast space opening up in the top register, with a synth that reaches skywards in a kind of desert-based incantation that's as uplifting as it is beguiling. Kab and Minilogue combine for the remix that switches up the ethnic mood for a far more machine-driven ride through aquatic tones and melodies; a veritable oasis of a foil to the dusty A-side.
