Huerco S.: Colonial Patterns (BONE) LP

Availability: In stock

Reissued! Huerco S. services Dan Lopatin's Software imprint with his debut album proper, following that seductive, rep-making trio of EPs on Wicked Bass, Opal Tapes / Boomkat Editions and Future Times. It's top-drawer stuff, taking the new age ambience and rugged, smoke-choked house rhythms du jour and turning them inside out, opening up new zones of dubwise introspection. 'Plucked From The Ground, Towards The Sun' is a 90s Chain Reaction cut inspected through a smeared microscope lens, but it's the minor key shifts and almost Autechre-ish edits of 'Quivira' that really get the show on the road, building to 'Anagramme Of My Love', the oneiric house choppage of 'linzhiid' and the Newworldaquarium-esque codeine boogie of 'Ragtime U.S.A. (Warning)' - a total killer. Sure there's a lot of stuff like this around at the moment, but the Kansan man brings both a precision and a nonchalant narcotic swagger to proceedings that sets him apart from the pack. Really good stuff.
