I'm finding it increasingly hard to write about dub-techno. It’s the definition of simplicity in many sense, and perhaps that’s why so many many people don’t like it. But doing ‘simple’ well is enough in my books. Dewtone consistently strive for this minimalist dub-techno approach, but their stuff is always injected with something addictive… something melodic or just something that makes you go wow.
Forgotten Hearts is a progressive number, embellished with some absolutely lush synths amongst spaced out distant vocals and detailed static. All three tracks are superb, but Bjorn Rohde’s, ‘I Began To Float’ is all of the ‘somethings’ I described above… something else.
