Jerome Sydenham's 10” inch series continues with another offering from premier Techno outfit, Slam Mode.
Slam Mode's deep space theme with their track names, seems to carry over seamlessly into their beats, which almost seem to have an otherworldly essence. Sometimes their productions might not always fit alongside the deep and organic vibes of Ibadan, but it is just that which makes, 'Solaris/Eternal' precisely perfect for the Ten Inch Beats series.
'Solaris' is a straight up driving and moody Techno track with flickering percussion to stave off any monotonous vibes. This infectious little number delves right under your sub-coetaneous, burrowing a little hole there while it spreads its synth laden data throughout your system.
Choosing to exercise their knack for congealing soundscapes on, 'Eternal', the boys layer multiples pads, strings, leads and lines to perfection. Techno with feeling, depth and meticulous craftsmanship, may not be every ones cup of tea, but it sure oozes a seldom seen quality that can be appreciated by many.
