ANALOGUE ATTIC

Albrecht La'Brooy's Analogue Attic imprint welcomes Citizen Maze onto its roster with the four-track EP "Serenity In The Woods.

Australian duo Albrecht La'Brooy have been steadily carving out a name for themselves over the past few years with their jazz-inflected take on deep house via the likes of Apollo / R&S, Night Tide and of course their own Analogue Attic imprint which has become a home for their own output as well as fellow Australian artists like Sleep D, Rings Around Saturn and more. Here though we see the label offer up the inaugural EP from Melbourne's Adam McCoy aka Citizen Maze.

Leading the package is the ten-minute "Natural Playground", embracing the labels signature field recording background aesthetic whilst stirring in organic drum grooves, fluttering pads and jazzy sax licks throughout. "Glade Hollow" follows with bumpy, off-kilter drums and ethereal chords at its core whilst horn lines and twinkling synth melodies wander across its eight-minute duration.
"Moonlight Sanctuary" opens the flip, edging into darker territories with murky dubbed out synth flourishes, robust drums and tension building strings before title-track "Serenity In The Woods" rounds out the package, laying focus on a snaking sub bass groove, metallic percussive shuffles and expansive atmospherics.


Albrecht La'Brooy's Analogue Attic imprint say hello to summer with a solo project from one half of the duo, Alex Albrecht, under his newly formed Melquiades guise...
The past couple of years have seen Albrecht La'Brooy steadily hone their unique spin on the ambient end of the house and techno landscape via self-released gems & acclaimed projects on Night Tide, Voyage Records and Butter Sessions, culminating with the release of their debut long player 'Tidal River' on R&S offshoot Apollo earlier this year. This solo material from Alex's new alias combines the textured shimmer of ambient with a rhythmic approach which should add some atmosphere to your standard club set. The material recorded live, retaining an improvised feel and managing to capture the surreal and mysterious atmosphere of the Australian bush. Combining atmospheric field recordings, Jazz tinged double bass-licks and bright piano elements, all woven together with the label's trademark intricately programmed rhythms, the "Bluff EP" is an engaging, mesmerising and addictive addition to the label's already well-loved output...

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Whether he's shimmying through broken beats and jazzy house or drifting through forth world mysticism, Alex Albrecht keeps the quality high and the content original with this solo debut.

After the success of 2016's "Open Water", Udmo returns with three meticulous compositions based on themes of industry and space. The tightly woven, ethereal sounds that we have come to associate with this young artist are even more developed with his second release, with heavenly rhythms cascading through bliss clouds of serene ambience. Distant echoes of delicate percussion ripple against sumptuous pillows of sound and soft focused melodies. Occasionally we'll hear club friendly breakbeats develop, only to be pacified by injections of calm tranquility. It's a glorious contradiction which Udmo works to great effect, contrasting forward kinetic motion with static, non-linear waves of atmosphere. Label heads Albrecht La'Brooy add to the vibe with a deeply hypnotic 'Friday arvo knock-off' remix suited to the early hours with its suspended strings riding a deep thudding kick and intricate hi-end polyrhythms, further embellished by some near epic, dreamy piano work. Top, top stuff indeed.
