review from Juno

This year’s unstoppable upstart Blank Slate unveil a fifth release from newcomer Düve.

If there’s been a label that’s impressed the world of house and techno in 2013 it’s the Supply Records sister label Blank Slate. Since launching at the beginning of this year with an impressive V/A sampler, featuring contributions from North Lake, Qy, Arnaldo and Mirko, the label has almost overnight achieved buy-on-sight status. Subsequent Blank Slate drops have come from the London-based artist Arnaldo, Mirko and label co-founder René Audiard and now the label turn to the unheralded Düve for release number five. Streaming below, Düve expresses a penchant for combining middle eastern percussion, brass, strummed strings and Medina atmospheres with the trippy and longwinding “660″.
