Barcode: 827170569362 Release: 08.12.2014 Tracklist: 1 / Xhin - Blade Moth 2 / Tommy Four Seven - FFFFF 3 / Kangding Ray - Vega 4 / DSCRD - Apparition Hill Short info: For the third in its fifth anniversary release series, Stroboscopic Artefacts brings together tracks from Xhin, Tommy Four Seven, Kangding Ray and Dsrcd. Xhin’s Blade Moth’, previously released digitally by Meerestief, finds today new (and remastered) life on SA. It is deep and propulsive, with scattershot percussion reverberating around finely tuned kicks and sci-fi oscillations. The detailed sound design and experimental quirks are typical of the producer; they made for a stunning debut album on SA in 2011, and here elevate the functional 4x4 skeleton into a fantastically ethereal piece of dance music. On ‘FFFFF’, an incessant bass groove channels pounding kicks and high-end distortion into powerful form. Tommy Four Seven’s experience in the DJ booth informs the less-is-more approach, as carefully selected elements roll dynamically and to gripping effect. Flip the record over and Kangding Ray provides the most dramatic offering in ‘Luna’. Warehouse-style synths slide from behind drums and throbbing pulses of sub bass, driving the track forward with vigour. ‘Luna’ closes with an extended and euphoric outro, it heightens the peak-time force and lends itself to spellbinding mixes. Parisian act Dscrd end the EP with slow, grinding techno cut ‘Apparition Hill’. It opts for tension over release, ebbing and flowing with restrained arrangement and masterful guile. Illusory vocal samples and washes of noise rise from the murky atmosphere, filling the mid-range with harsh textures. Dscrd’s contribution offers something slower and more heady, finishing a special record with finesse.
