Released on Alula Tunes label, the release promises a sublime exploration of peak time techno soundscapes. DOBé's penchant for dark grooves and mesmerising ambients has cemented his reputation for crafting immersive sets that draw listeners into an enthralling aural journey.
Both the opening title track and the following ‘Kruskal’ showcase DOBé and Mark Valsecchi’s distinctive and complementary styles, which blend dark grooves, hypnotic ambients, acid bits and melodic lines. ‘Bodkin’ is a peak-time banger that will make you move with its driving bassline and crystal plucks. ‘Kruskal’ is a more atmospheric and adventurous tune that will take you on a journey with its eerie synths and cryptic vocals. The collaboration is a result of their mutual respect and admiration, as well as their shared passion for electronic music.
The Cape Town-based producer Ryan Hill offers his own take with his remix of the title track.
