Luke SlaterÃŠÂ¼s Mote-Evolver has been busy keeping the techno scene on its toes with a string of releases that have proven the credentials of the label and challenged the status quo. High profile releases such as Planetary Assault Systems Deep Heet Vol. 2 and the Jerome Sydenham vs Function and James Ruskin remixes of GT have set the benchmark for a release schedule that has seamlessly encompassed music from Slater and his peers as well as the best of the new school producers who are evolving the techno sound for the next generation.
One such producer who could be attributed to either of these categories is Cari Lekebusch. Often credited with serving as inspiration to a generation of electronic music producers, the founder ofÃŠÂ»Swedish TechnoÃŠÂ¼has earned a reputation as a diverse and evolutionary force within techno thanks to a steady stream of quality
productions and so Mote-Evolver welcomes Cari back to the label for his second release with open arms.
Third Eye Vision, inspired by ideas of cerebral exploration, is one for the heads. Built around a building groove emitting a constant melodic hum; the effect is a disorientating hypnosis enhanced by psychedelic chimes and detuned reverbs.
Ana Kata, with its playful, off-centre styling, continues the EPÃŠÂ¼s theme of other worldliness. Warm and enticing yet stark and challenging at times, the fusion of contrasting elements from both sides of the palette creates an alluring harmony.
Octave Mundi closes out the EP with an epic flourish. Part cinematic soundscape, part muscular rhythm track, the sonic alchemy at work creates a moment for the late hours; delivering in equal measures for the head and for the feet.
