Patrice Baumel & Rodnonsonjon - The Tower by My Favorite Robot Records published on 2014/08/04 13:58:26 +0000 The next release from Canada’s MFR sees Patrice Baumel making his label debut alongside emergent talent Rodnonsonjon German & Dutch based producer Patrice Baumel has long been a techno cohort with fine releases on labels such as Trapez, Dirt Crew and Get Physical and is also the long time residentat Amsterdam’s foremost club, Trouw. Rodnonsonjon meanwhile is making his start in themusical world but the two tracks here suggest he has a fine career ahead. First up, ‘The Tower’ is a hurried bit of deep house that’s marbled with industrial drones andmuted rave horns. It’s a tunneling bit of music that takes you ever deeper down the rabbit holeand hypnotizes as you go, with sweeps of white noise the only thing to stop you fully falling into atrance. On the flip, ‘To The End of Time’ mines a similar vein but is even more steely, teeth clenchingand doom laden. A vinyl crackle characterizes the track’s texture, with paranoid voices, edgypiano lines and circling synths all trapping you beneath the groove. It’s a patient and dramatic bitof music that will be truly captivating on a loud soundsystem. This EP is another fantastic feather in the bow of the already tastemaking My Favorite Robotlabel.
