Al Wootton - Artefacts [TRULE017]
Al Wootton fuses bass and techno better than almost anyone i the game right now. He is a core part of the likes of Livity Sound and ZamZam Sounds as well as heading up his own well respected Rule label. It is there here returns now with four more precise and devastating cuts of infectious and futuristic body music. 'Rope Walk' glides on airy drum patterns and heady synths that rise and fall then 'Temple Ball' mixes scuffed up kicks and twisted blurts of modulated synth sound with complex melodies that melt theming. Brain and body are again perfectly catered for on the flip with the gurgling bass of 'Artefacts' and wet and watery synths of 'Russell' both taking you deep into a techno mind maze.
