Voices from the lake aka Donato Dozzy / Neel - 531 KHZ - Concrete Records LTD
Limited to 300 copies! Donato Dozzy & Neel and Kab & Minilogue present almost 23 minutes of voyage inside the techno abyss.
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.
CLTD002 is the second vinyl release- the original track bares the signature of Donato Dozzy and Neel, as Voices from the Lake. 531KHz, is without a doubt, a techno track conceived for the dancefloor, but with the dark settings and mental shades that characterize and make unique the work of Donato and Neel. Very few variations, a wall of bass, and an energy that engages mind and spirit.
On the B-side, Kab and Minilogue give us a remix that is a true masterpiece, not many artists are able to deliver their own personal vision without changing the nature of the original project.
