Hands On Experience
Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback have been at the heart of electronic music for the last 2 decades and have been behind countless releases for some of the worlds leading techno imprints. For their latest collaborative work they have returned to the roots of techno, recordings four brand new tracks with a pair of classic Roland 808s and very little else.
The release features 2 tracks on the vinyl single, "Bellbottom" and "Rockers" plus 2 additional digital only tracks "Headbanging" and "Moodswing" for download.
All of the recordings are stripped and rhythmic with a definite old school flavor, yet there is also a beautiful warmth in the production and a sense that though recorded in a retrospective way this is the sound of now. The hypnotic groove of "Bellbottom" is mesmerizing, "Rockers" is a superb journey down a dark tech tunnel and "Headbanging" and "Moodswing" are both brilliant examples of how much can be done with some limited studio hardware.
