If you are into high-quality Dub Techno and proper Deep House, you should check, if you still haven’t, Made of Concrete’s catalogue on your favourite music outlet. The German label has been delivering proper stuff – available both on digital and vinyl formats – since its foundation in 2015. This is the second review we write for them, and as we did at the first time, skimming through their previous releases is something we failed to avoid.
Their next offering comes from the hands of Rebar, the label owners themselves, a Berlin/Dresden-based duo focused on delivering blue-chip atmospheric, trippy, and extremely-far-from-melodic Techno/House themes. Despite being the big bosses, they haven’t released original works on their own imprint since the superb “The Rise Of A Crisis” in September last year. The lads now deliver “Phenomena”, three spaced-out, dubby Techno rollers that come accompanied with a boom(!) remix by Markus Suckut.
The track we were solicited to review/premiere, “Solar Storm”, is a minimalistic and hypnotic extravaganza whose synth stabs and leads seem to depict real disturbances and flares on Sun’s surface. Its dark yet pensive mood provides a mesmerizing aura, suitable to lose yourself to dance and forget the chaos we have been currently living in.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
