One of my favorite producers of recent years is Sleeparchive. His sound, vision and philosophy are spot-on: stripped-down warehouse techno with limited release, hand printed labels, old-school ethic. Taking the dub-tech sound of Basic Channel and the bleep of early warehouse techno Sleeparchive has crafted his own unique take on techno with a series of releases that took the secene by storm, getting play from DJs such as Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Damian Lazarus, and Ricardo Villalobos.
This new, limited edition 10″ record dropped today with impressive sounds to say the least. This release is a departure in sound for Sleeparchive, apparently the result of his experimentation with the LBB (Little Boy Blue) synth. LBB1 and LBB2 are both almost straight noise, distorted and stretched in different directions of rhythm. There is no kick, snare, vocal sample, high hats.. this is a very abstract release. I’m liking the experimentation and eager to hear where it brings him in future releases. Listen to LBB1 and LBB2
