After a long hiatus, Rotate is back for its 8th release. “Inner Space” by the duo Abé & Lowris as Labello is a three-track 12-inch with a strong focus on psychedelic sounds, warped vocals, hypnotic synths and finely-tuned drum programming.
Like yin and yang, both tracks on the A-side of the EP display exquisitely opposed tones crafted for distinct dancefloor moments. The bright, funky and appropriately named ‘Goodtimes’ stands very different from the dark, cinematic and thrilling ‘Invisible Red’. Still, ensembled, they serve as a statement on the raw potential of sonic hypnotization, where shuffling grooves, wacky melodies and cinematic atmospheres work together to set the dancer’s minds into a seemingly perpetual state of flow. B-side’s extended cut ‘Pkaila’ is one of the deepest arrangements here, reminiscent of the golden age of techno minimalism where dancefloors needed little more than a rolling groove, shuffling drums and impeccable sound design slapping from its sound systems.
Bandcamp buyers also get “FCT”, an exclusive downloadable bonus 18-minute jam that further showcases Labello’s explorational side, rounding off “Inner Space” in a delightfully varied manner.
