As you might assume, ALEX Smith and DIGBY Smith are brothers. Brothers who grew up loving the same thing: TECHNO. The producers first began to appear back in 2014 on their own, effortlessly cool FLASH AS A RAT label, and have consequentially landed on the excellent Hello? Repeat. Two tracks are clearly enough to get their point and style across; the opening "Black" is in the same school of thought as the majority of Villalobos' releases, except that these dudes add in an extra layer of oddity, namely through the field recordings that they manage to blend into the minimalistic groove. "Mink" is more lively, a haphazard minimal techno number barely held together by an intricate fold of percussion elements that really would make ol' Ricardo very proud, indeed.
