Review: It's hard to believe that Found Ritual is Absis' first release - it's impressively formed and teems with intuitively hypnotic sensibilities. "Floating Around" and "Break Through Far" start the release with eerie synth lines and ominous bass pulses. Absis then ups the pace for "Search And Find", delivering a multi-layered, throbbing piece of techno that is redolent of producers like Dozzy and Neel. On "Running Uphill", he changes tact again, and drops a broken beat arrangement that resounds to a cacophony of bleeps and tones. Meanwhile, "Dive Inside" reverts to the slower, drawn out approach that prevailed at the start of the release, this time with the added benefit of a layered sub-bass.
Review: It's hard to believe that More Love is over a quarter of a century old. Cari Lekebusch originally released this EP under his Agent Orange guise back in 1995, and it still sounds fresh. The title track is an impactful, acid-soaked affair, with Lekebusch dropping gurgling 303s over a slick groove."Give A Little More Love" is more angular and jacking, as vocal snippets are woven into doubled up drums, while on "more Acid", Lekebusch reverts to the 303, for a searing, peak-time affair. Closing out this excellent release is label owner Blue Hour's take on the title track, where he ups the tempo but retains the intoxicating acid flavours.
