Kevin Arnemann and Daan Kemp’s Taped Artifact label clocks up its fourth release with a three track offering from Outlaw Rec boss and key part of the Italian Serendipity club, namely Matthew Oh. Matthew has previously released on his own label and others like Side Off, and eloquently marries dub, techno and house into smooth and sensuous sonic landscapes.
The opening track ‘Psycho Hub’ is an atmospheric and spacious roller with dubbed out drums and pads, coupled with incendiary hi hats urging you along. ‘Shroud’ is seven minutes of slick and spaced out deep techno with liquid synths and clacking hits all racing along and making for a frictionless groove that sucks you right in. Finally, ‘Get in the Fridge’ slows the tempo down and becomes an even more widescreen and roomy roller with suspensory pads, smeared synths and aqueous sonic details that make you feel like you are floating in sound.
