LWE review UV002

In the argot of robotics, the “uncanny valley” is the point at which an object meant to appear human becomes unsettling to an actual human. I believe music encounters its own uncanny valleys — the points at which a song sounds too reminiscent of that which came before it and sets off copycat alarms. Perhaps it’s telling Dresden’s Uncanny Valley label chose that as its name, as many of their tracks evoke the familiar aesthetics of dance music greats but manage to swerve away from the perilous gulf. In the process they’re bringing acclaim to newer Dresden producers, some of whom are already known — Jacob Korn and Break SL — and others who’ve yet to break through. Uncanny Valley 002 contains the debut of Credit 00; as well as the debut of C-Beams (the collaboration of Break SL and Stefan Menzel); and new tracks by Korn and Cuthead.
