Review: Horizontal Ground #1

Label: Horizontal Ground
Catalog#: #1


A: Untitled

B: Untitled

Buy here


After three Frozen Border releases, gives us the first Horizontal Ground – a record which really brings out a new sound that feels extremely fresh, yet so natural for the current state of techno.

The A-side features a track that in prospect gives a huge finger to most tracks present, featuring a deadly vocal that fits the atmosphere perfectly. Surrounding the voice is elements that feels Robert Hood, but at the same time stripped in a very European way – a way that has yet to be proven successful or the contrary. As the structure develops itself by maintaining the energy at a very pleasant level, there are very unpredictable turns applied on the sparse and sporadic sounds and elements. A track that most likely will span through a few different crates of techno DJ’s and fans.

On the B-side, the seriousness gets a bit of shadow in order to pull out a melody that is more haunting but also self aware in a more “party” sense, made with monumental grace and style, pulled off in a way I’ve never experienced before.

Killer release, we will probably see atleast two more on this label!
