Review: RUOK? RUOK? Everyone's been there at one time or another but no one's documented it quite so explicitly as Ambivalent (aka Kevin McHugh) on his first release for Minus. Set against a stripped down groove, you can almost feel the back of your eyeballs start to sweat as the pitched down vocals narrate an all too familiar tale of late night over-indulgence (also included in acappella form). The whip-crack snare struggles to contain a sliding, elastic bassline and a fuzzy synth line infiltrates the proceedings like a wasp that's somehow got trapped inside your head. The vocals grow increasingly demented in the breakdown before the subsequent return really cranks it up a notch. The hi hats double up and the subsonic toms pound the life out of the sound system right through to the end of the track. As with all Minus EPs, there's a cold logic running through this body of work that may not be immediately apparent by just dropping the needle casually on each track. "R U OK" is a collection that demands detailed consideration and will no doubt make a timeless companion for any DJ.

Detente (12")
Cat: COR 12156. Rel: 29 Aug 18
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Detente (6:34)
  2. Dutchless (6:06)
  3. Wallfall (6:25)
Review: The legendary Dutch producer Martijn Hoogendijk aka Alden Tyrell (of Clone Records fame) teams up here for some main room bangers with Berlin based American Kevin McHugh aka Ambivalent: who has had a productive past decade recording for such respected imprints as m_nus, Ovum Recordings and Kompakt in addition to running his Delft and Valence imprints - where he records as acid expert LA-4A. The Detente EP brings the furious warehouse style bounce of the title track (featuring some relentless drum work!), the dusty and greyscale dub techno workout of "Dutchless" and the totally heads down and strobe-lit affair of "Wallfall" that is reminiscent of Jell Mills seminal Waveform Transmissions series.
