Following up the critically acclaimed sophomore Greeen Linez album Izu King Street with bandmate Chris Greenberg, Diskotopia co-owner A Taut Line returns with a mind-melting solo single release to round out 2014. Ahead of his follow up to the widely acclaimed Nitriding Portrait album released last year, Matt Lyne presents two incredulously deep, detailed and dancefloor ready burners for the global clubminded community.
Bamboo Holography is drenched in the exotic Fourth World humidity that has become a staple of A Taut Line’s work, takes us to an entirely new land with barely any trace of a passport stamp. Ethereal biology video pads ascend and recline through a tribal percussive workout; the pan Afro-Asia shrill winds of nature coinciding with a mechanical presence being brought to the forefront during a peak-time, hands-in-the-air moment. This is 1984, 1993 and 2020 at the same time in the very early hours of the morning and you’ve just crossed the line into a Twilight Zone warehouse rave of another continent in another world altogether.
Freeze Roll is a churning, insistent boogie freakout reserved for the listeners of days future past. A multimedia mélange of whirlwind b-boy & b-girl battle images meld with ever shifting quantized arpeggios as wormhole-laden 707 transcendental rhythms provide a rock solid ocean floor for the otherworldly chats accenting the proceedings in a particularly fine style. File next to that broken cassette with recordings of your cousin mucking about on a Voyetra over the top of early French house 12”s played at the wrong speed.
