1DERL& – Intertwined EP (Processed PRCSD005 – 2013)
Estonian producer Margus Löve aka 1DERL&, to be pronounced Wonderland, was formerly known as dubstepper L-OW but switched to house and techno with the album called “Reflection”, out in 2012. With “Intertwined EP” his Processed imprint drops the first wax release with four remixes of the album material.
The LP spanned from generic tech house to dub techno and “Intertwined EP” offers a mixed bag of sounds too. Whereas the pounding B-side is obvious winner, launched with Mattias Fridell’s giant bass and dubbed out chords in “Section Zero”. Techno crowd is even more satisfied when “Vaporized” is handled by Ness, operating with edgy synth stabs and spiraling badass groove for a perfect dark room experience.
The A-side features two takes of “Ray’s House” that in the interpretation of Kamikaze Space Programme sticks to the peculiar handbag sample of the original while Russia’s Unbalance opts for delicate approach with subtle chords and rolling dubs.
