SUPPLY-012 / 12" / 2016
Release Date : Winter 2016
Label boss Soren Jahan returns to Supply Records with his first appearance under the René Audiard moniker since 2012's Pechorin album. The Spectre EP shows Soren's dub-techno influences evolving into more experimental, stripped down territory. The title track Spectre opens with a smeared, lurching spoken word sample winding between cacophonous buzzing, bleeping synth work. Stabs of dub-influenced chords surface from the dark and fade away, building to a killer climax of 909 percussion. Orly keeps only the essential elements for a groove. A relentless, rolling drum kit and kraut-influenced blips provide a barebones structure for the understated but deadly effective acid line.
Soren stretches his creative side on the B side with the heady microhouse cut-and- paste collage of Odkrycia. In a style reminiscent of the most out-there Background and Perlon releases, he stacks one jagged-edged layer of samples onto the next before sinking full-bodied into a melodic trance in the way only he can. SZCZ rounds things off in a similar collage style but in a steadier, more peaceful progression. 8 series of loops unfold and exchange over nine minutes of blissed out grooves, the most reminiscent of Soren's earlier lo-fi dubby work.
