Paul Loraine’s Rhythm Cult welcomes Pvt. Vasquez with his ‘No Quarter’, a three track release into dub techno sounds. The Mr. Loraine’s label activity is active since 2014 but he updated the catalogue patiently and slowly, without that kind of pressure put in effort by most of the labels out there. In the various releases we can find also the only vinyl EPs, the last one was published a month ago and featured the one and only Sasha Dive.
Shifting the focus on the forthcoming release, the productions from Pvt. Vasquez reveal an advanced vision of dub techno, where he hazards with chords, reverbs and delays, combining them with interesting drum loops: the results show an intense sound, captivating and with a particular late night feeling. The only track that mostly detaches from this style is ‘Wake Up’, its industrial and dark contaminations express the artist intentions to do something experimental.
