On the back of what has been a successful year thus far for the Ithaca-based Blank Slate, the fifth release from this unstoppable imprint clearly shows these guys are not slowing down with the invigorating sounds. This EP is from a new cat – for me anyway – on the scene called Düve. A favourite is ‘Streets’ which projects the image of Ron Morelli and co. getting caught up in a bustling Middle-Eastern market, feigning of hagglers with their raw weapons of analog. The EP’s sound also ranges from the off-kilter, percussive elements of ‘Karv’ to the escalating, filtered ambience of ‘660’, this offering from Düve is full of unexpected curve-balls. It is music with balls. Music that takes risks.
