Next up for Rhythm Section’s club focused sub-label – 'International Black' 004 is here and it is bringing the heat - this time from Tennessee, USA. Mister Saturday Night and CGI affiliate Alex Falk delivers a 4 track EP made with one thing in mind – the dancefloor. Taking influence from the likes of Chevel, Levon, Redshape and Phase; Alex Falk achieves a singular vision merging American and European styles of Techno.
Opening with UPP, an effortless techno groove with a tight rolling bass line, classic lead stabs that pulsate, twist and turn as the heavy kick punishes the subs. BETA comes in next with a serious low end bounce – a distorted bass bump pushes the system to the max before being followed up by lower sub all swinging around a fat house kick and tight percussion – another club stomper for the serious rigs only.
The B side is a proper dub techno workout. Beginning with DAB a focused club tool whereupon sharp stabs progress and modulate throughout the track as tight kicks and hats hold down the groove. Its a serious wristbreaker that will cut through any mix. Closing the EP is GATES13, a more downtempo affair. Atmospheric chord stabs dub upon an 808 kick, a must for the warm up or warm down.
International Black is heads down, arms up.
International Black is for your mind, your body and your soul. International Black is late nights and early mornings.
International Black is the sound when the lights go off.
