Quell is a Greek producer based in Berlin and Rave Mouth is his latest release on These Days, a label run by fellow countryman Argy. This four-tracker does much to dispense with the German city's current predilection for streamlined, linear techno. Indeed, it seems to focus instead on the raw and grainy approach of early Bpitch and Boyz Noise. Chicago bass-lines mutate into noisy, clanging forms, drums pound and roll in an unpredictable manner and over the top samples are strewn throughout - just check the daft repetition that prevails on "Fehlerkultur". The only example of a more measured approach is audible on the title track, where Quell does a fine job at emulating jacking acid tracks.
