Having first emerged as one of the last contributing artists to the now defunct Sandwell District, the enigmatic techno producer Rrose has since channeled her unique brand of techno through the Eaux label. Vanishing Pools is the second Eaux 12" release this year and finds Rrose once again providing some superb spectral techno. Proceedings commence with the creepy modular throb and off-kilter touches of "Hole", before ratcheting up the intensity on the discordant dancefloor buzz of "Purge". There's a strange, industrial-influenced feel to the droning electronics and metallic hits of "Curl", while "Adrift" seems more concerned with mood and texture than dancefloor dynamics. As if to make amends, Rrose finishes with "Undergrowth", a paranoid chunk of slowly evolving ambience.
