Considering Clark’s glitch-ridden back catalogue this teaser for his seventh LP is remarkably lucid. The glitch remains but with more fluidity.
“I love this track, it builds throughout and the rolling percussion keeps hyping the crowd before an old school piano hook comes in. A great transition record!”
The new guise from DFRNT takes his penchant for the dubbier side of the music continuum that little bit further, deeper and more echo chamber-drenched than ever before. ‘While the Lady Sleeps’ is certainly the closest you’ll get to that archetypal Rhythm & Sound aesthetic, but nicely updated. ‘Dwelling’ drops a little touch of Amen to spice things up, whilst ‘Cosy’ is so far into the echo sludge, it's almost static.
I respect producers whose work keeps you guessing; those dudes who seem to like to try and wrong-foot you at every possible integer. Kloke is very much one of those guys and his new 12” for Sub Squared manages to twist itself in five very distinct and different ways. A four-part ambient drone piece? Check. Raspy bass-heavy techno that doesn’t give in all hope and draw to butcher the Amen break for no particular reason? Check, thank fuck.
