Bass Culture welcomes Frenchman Leo Pol to the fold for this fresh new four-tracker full of analogue vibes. Leo's penchant for synthesisers and the warmth of his beloved machines is evident throughout this new release, with a retro soul spliced with modern sensibilities and, of course, visions of the future. Things get off to an energetic start with 'Caliente', a track that combines a killer main riff, scintillating pads and steam-powered percussion to really get those feet moving. This is followed by 'Fnc Burning', which totally slips the script with its off-kilter rhythm and UK-influenced breakbeat-esque sound. Get ready for a sublime breakdown, with more UK rave stylings in the second half... fresh!On the flip side we get 'Dark Outside, which harks back to the early days of post-electro Detroit. Those formative years when masters like Juan Atkins were the soundtrack of Motor City... from the hushed, silky vocal to the cosmic bleeps, this is a homage to the ghosts of techno's past, with a contemporary sheen.Finally, we finish up with 'Techyes No!', a dark, marauding stomper with a menacing atmosphere and spinetingling strings to really amplify the eerie feeling that pervades throughout. A diverse, yet cohesive collection of killer cuts from the young master Leo Pol and another superb Bass Culture release. Only the finest from D'Julz's excellent label.
