Sbire label boss Isolated Lines and Colombian producer Gotshell come together in an inspired meeting of minds, collaborating on 'Particule' and 'Dual'. On the B-side, two solo tracks from Isolated Lines complete a high quality EP and step in a darker, dancefloor direction for the label.
Having met whilst Isolated Lines was touring in Colombia, the pair found common ground in their tendency towards austere atmospherics and tense exercises in rhythm. Their collaborations here are mind-bending bleep techno tracks with high-impact arrangement and sound design; 'Particule' recalling the eerieness of Isolated Lines' 'Obsid' on Tommy Four Seven's label 47. On the flip, his headier side is on show. Alluring pads sweep between the drums like an icy wind, making these the type of tracks that glow within a techno set. The record delivers on the high expectations set for these rising artists and shows Sbire to be pushing the front line.
