Following his acclaimed debut album ‘Tungsten’ on Kneaded Pains in 2021, as well as the recent ‘Motionless EP’ in February 2022, London based DJ/producer Fossil Archive, aka Roberto, joins forces with Edinburgh’s Stephen Brown, an artist whose work has appeared on Subject Detroit, Djax-Up-Beats, Echocord Colour, and more throughout his illustrious career.
Leading the release, ‘Control C’ sees the duo effortlessly weave syncopated stabs, knocking percussion, and rattling hats together for a suitably trippy start to the EP. Title cut ‘3D World’ follows with dense, emotive pads intertwined into a sleek, building arrangement, one for the early hours. ‘More House’ brings pounding kick drums under swathes of FX and flowing chords before the final track, and ‘Travel’ brings the tempo down for a hypnotic journey built for eyes-closed moments on the dancefloor.
Founded by Roberto in 2015, the Fossil Archive label has released music by artists such as Voiski, DJ Rolando, Sterac aka Steve Rachmad, Roman Lindau, Robert Owens, and many more, including Roberto himself. As a DJ, Roberto has played at the likes of fabric, Tresor, Berghain and more.
