Review: Torrebros – Sitting on the Brink of Eternity (Numoment recordings)
Again it‘s Torre Bros (or is it Torrebros now? Who knows) on Numoment Recordings and again it’s Detroit Techno par excellence. Following the classy “Litote” and “Melted Faces” EPs the “Sitting On The Brink Of Eternity” EP emerged, with two originals and two remixes that follow the Torre Bros vision of a warm groovy Techno fueled by the Motor City origins. Not too much nostalgia but a bow to the inspirational standards of the 1990s included, “Sitting On The Brink Of Eternity” opens with the title tracks spheric intro peppered with some nice bleeps, then kicks off with some more than solid beats pushing ahead, swinging vibrantly. Those spheric pads appear again, bringing in deepness and pathos and illustrating Detroit Technos magical synergy between raving beats and sweeping and at times melancholic strings. Fred Berthet (aka DJ Steef) then comes up with a remix of “La Nébuleuse Du Coeur”. A remarkable bass line and a tight beat form the backbone of an relaxedly grooving piece. “Subtil”, an Tottebros original, delivers driving rhythms, punchy and powerful but still subtle enough to keep the track transparent and, on top, a dramatic string melody. Again this is a good example for the emotional access the strings offer in this kind of music, it’s them that make the whole thing multidimensional and the track touching. Karim Sahraouis “Paradise Remix” of “Subtil” adopts the originals melody and structure but shifts the sounds towards a more intimate experience with lush strings creating a special sweetness and beauty, falling and rising again. Intense and atmospheric stuff expressing the harmonic side of techno and another reason for keeping the very talented Mr. Sahraoui in mind (also very good: his last years’ “Gang Of Love EP” on Compost Black Label). All in all, this is an inspired release with just the right oldschool-touch and four great tracks. First class Techno!
