LNS & DJ Sotofett - Sputters 2xLP - Tresor
While LNS and DJ Sotofett are old studio buddies - the Canadian and the Norwegian producers have previously released a string of singles on the latter's Wania imprint - Sputters marks the first time they've recorded an album together. Like previous outings, it's a hardware-driven affair - so dusty drum machines, synths and effects units all the way - united not be one rhythm or beat pattern but rather echoing electronic sounds, alien-sounding motifs, intergalactic riffs and a decidedly sci-fi ethos. Over the two slabs of wax you can expect to hear heady, intoxicating mutations of techno, IDM, ambient, Rephlex style "brain-dance", electro and slo-mo electronica. Throw in plenty of dub style effects and you've got a genuinely impressive, entertaining electronic trip.
