Rote is a debutant artist, formed by Volte-Face and Daniel Avery, best known for his LP ‘Drone Logic’, widely considered to be one of the breakthrough dance albums of the last decade. Rote is a project with no precise mission statement. The goal is to approach each studio session with a fresh impetus, to release club EPs with minimal fanfare and fuss.
This time around, the 2 original tracks are characterized by dense atmosphere, tense white-noise and Space-Echoed flourishes allied to a tough techno backbone. Rote 1 is an economical and direct peak-time track, equal parts hypnotic and subtly uplifting. Rote 2 is an altogether more epic proposition, opening with a heads-down broken beat, before taking flight with fluttering hi-hats and transcendent pads. Remix-wise, both artists use the source material to subtle yet masterful effect. Nobu takes things deep and polyrhythmic, with Svreca taking a more minimal and immersive approach.
