Infrastructure
Dave Sumner relaunches his pre-Sandwell District label with a split release featuring Ed Davenport. Both artists draw heavily on '90s techno for inspiration; Davenport’s 'Rhyl' is a brooding mid-tempo affair, inspired by the spaced-out atmospherics of Speedy J’s ‘Ginger’ album. Sumner’s ‘Odeon’ meanwhile, is characterised by his signature sound, subtle in its use of perucssive licks, nagging acid and dubby beats. As its centrepiece though, Sumner uses ice-sculpted synths so frosty that the temperature will fall to 10 degrees as soon as the needle drops on ‘Odeon’.
