Album Review

Similar to the preceding Phylyps Trak record and the succeeding Radiance record, Basic Channel's Q 1.1 offers multiple variations of a particular motif. The featured motif on this record involves a steady, pumping dub basslines and some dark, mechanical, dusty drum machine percussion. This all works primarily because of the record's pristine clarity, making the dub basslines sound tangibly warm and the percussion sound more robotic than it perhaps should. To top things off, some classic techno synth appears periodically to further bolster this record's range of unique sounds. In sum, it's rather amazing to listen as this Berlin collective creatively rework the same sounds in such different ways, inciting a broad palette of emotive responses within the listener while always remaining true to dancefloor aesthetic. These compositions aren't nearly as epic as most residing within the collective's canon, but it's almost refreshing to hear songs that don't necessarily challenge one's patience.
