LA BEAUTé DU NéGATIF

Cult leftfield techno / noize / ambient label, ran by Matéo Montero aka Rawmance outta Rome. As usual, a varied selection of uncompromising cuts. Starts off with the clamoring assault of "If You Want More.." by Penelope's Fiance, an industrial artist from Greece. Next SSIEGE totally flips the mood on "Arborea" and soaks us in an unfathomably rich layer of liquid ambience and sensual textures; allowing us to float temporarily in a place that's both celestial and submerged in equal measure, and a firm reason for fans of Huerco S and Deepchord and Actress to get on board this release. Finally, Cardiff's own noisesmith and beat mangler, DJ Guy makes a welcome return to the label; offering up another storming reinterpretation of breakbeat hardcore / jungle via his warped and lysergic mind. Another record from this staple that bursts out the blocks and takes no prisoners. Ridiculous! - and highly recommended.

Rawmance's La Beaute Du Negatif is exactly the kind of obscure, limited run, no-hype record label that always piques my interest. After giving us coastal acid courtesy of Toisvesi, a crazed psych swirler from Deviere and a pummeling V/A EP, this might be their strongest record yet. CCC kicks off with an untitled number spanning the whole of the A-side. Throbbing 808 kicks and a sharp electro beat characterize this dark cave-dweller as a rising synth motif emerges from beneath the fug; penetrating all but the strongest craniums and bending consciousness as it does so. On the flip Cosimo Damiano's "Norvegian Landscapes" is a wonderful way to describe the serene, glacial beauty contained within this track. Another tour de force of epic synthesizer prowess coupled with a keen ear for inflicting mountains of emotion into a simple chord sequence, this is an absolute killer of a track. The serene, cryogenic nature is continued into Commodity Place's "Life Is A Georgeous Lie", as glitchy beats tumble over delicate piano notes and mournful strings; having a similarly calming effect as one might achieve after reaching the peak of a great summit. Breathtaking stuff from this buy-on-sight label. A 100% roman release.
