Release Press Text
It's that time of year again, when everyone's favourite Canadian-in-Berlin returns to the world's greatest record label. Raised on a strict diet of maple syrup and bacon until the tender age of 12, you can here this mixture of sugar and nitrates in his unique music that is so tender, yet so robust. Sid Le Rock is one of a kind and he's back!
Long live the shuffle! Mount Hope kicks things off with eerie atmospheres setting the tone with anticipation for the brutality that is to come. Classic Sid Le Rock staccato synths mixed with a small sprinkling of Fuck Buttons distortion?
Aurora Heights keeps the momentum going, but moves into much more hypnotic territory. The arctic pads remain though and we can imagine wide, frozen expanses with icebergs slowly floating past. We can imagine a lone wolf, patiently stalking it's unfortunate prey.
This is a perfect winter-techno record if ever there was one, so bring your Vodka and Slanket.
