Genre: Techno

I got passed the promo of this a few days back and jumped at the chance to take a listen and write a quick review for you folks. This is the second instalment on Roberto’s Fossil Archive imprint, and this time he teams up with friend and fellow techno aficionado Jamie Anderson.

First up on the release is “Billingsella” which is a track that is filled with low end and some great acid influenced stabs and pads that keep everything deep and groovy. The track makes use of some great warm and almost ethereal pads in places, and the percussion and hi hats are just devine. Acid appears to be making a little bit of a revival at present, and this is something that makes me a very happy man. This track has a deep edge but it packs a strong energy that any thought provoking dance floor would surely appreciate.

Next up, and the final track on this two track release is “Corrugata” and it is certainly a little more peak time than the opening track but still has that deep edge that Roberto seems to favour. This is a track that is filled with bounce and energy, and those haunting keys used seem to penetrate your mind, and put you in an almost lost like mind state. The bassline has a strong steady groove and all the elements link in perfect harmony to create a techno gem! To quote the press release the track is like “Colin Mcrae on crystal meth, and hardly qualifying as easy listening, ‘Corrugata’ has plenty of grab, nurturing a deep, melody-fractured trip through machine-made music”… I couldn’t have put it better myself!!!

Another very strong release here on the Fossil Archive label, and I am sure the label is going to continue to grow over the coming months. Roll on the next release Roberto!
