Catalogue number ten at Uncanny Valley and for this occasion the Dresden based label returns to its roots with another Various Artists EP. Actually, this is long overdue since there are a lot more talented producers to find in the Elbe Valley. On Uncanny Valley 010 we present four of them.
Sandrow M who focussed on the C-Beams project recently has been part of the label right from the start. With “The Three Trees” he makes his solo debut for Uncanny Valley. The track is a summery House tune that shines with Garage vocals and warm synth pads. Steve Kasper is slowing it down with “Unvexed Dub” which is an immersed House excursion for the morning hours.
On the flipside Scherbe’s ‘Kill Bill$’ stumbles but does not fall. Instead, the track lives from tottering interaction between bright percussions and fractious drones below. Finally, it’s Jacob Stoy who closes the record with ‘S51’, a dreamy Deep House study including heavenly pads and subtle drum programming.
For the artwork we are very glad to welcome back Paul Waak and his colourful figures that gave the first four compilations their unique look!
