Arid House MP3s

All the people in the house, say … “Blip. Bleep. Click.” True to the name of its netlabel, One Bit Wonder, Sven Tasnadi‘s Love, Despair & Hope album is entirely lo-tech techhouse. On it, the thump of minimal techno is achieved in a virtually echo-free chamber. The arid state emphasizes each little beat and sample as self-contained element, rather than as a ripple in some composite musical pond. It’s remarkable to achieve this level of languor without depending on humidity. The key track is the lead, “Fuck of N.Y.C.” (MP3), which is rife with microscopic little pleasures that cycle by in unpredictable combinations. It’s the sort of track you’d love to hear some singer lend lyrics to. More at 1bit-wonder.com.
