UK artist Rene Wise is back on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver label this June with the ‘Lakota Fox’ EP.
Andrew Shobeiri, aka Rene Wise, possesses an uncanny ability to create a sound that fuses hip-shaking grooves with a raw but modern touch. With a fine ear for infectious rhythm derived from a love of classic 90’s era techno, Wise breeds a deep sense of knowledge and maturity beyond what you’d expect for an artist of his age. A digital EP on Mark Broom’s Beardman imprint and a debut 12’-inch release on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver imprint laid the foundations for his musical journey. Wise has continued to showcase his artistic abilities with a consistent run of releases in 2021, including a split EP with techno heavyweight Rodhad on WSNWG and a solo EP on Setaoc Mass’ imprint SK_eleven. The ‘Lakota Fox’ EP now sees Rene Wise return to Mote-Evolver as he displays his flair for producing dynamic techno rollers and spectral soundscapes.
‘Raptor’ kicks off the EP with menacing grooves, enrapturing fx and fluttering synths that fluidly unite with one another before icy yet shrilling pads, shimmering drums with hypnotic bass meandering underneath sets the tone for ‘Marbles’. Up next, title track ‘Lakota Fox’ masterfully explores deeper techno territories as the mesmeric rhythms, shadowy pulsations, and moody reverb create a trance-inducing atmosphere throughout.
‘Hand Tap’ makes way for skeletal bleeps, psychedelic undertones and tension-building minimalism that effortlessly entices you until ‘Truffles’ rounds off this impressive techno five-tracker with spiralling synths that fuse with reverberating low frequencies and bumpy kicks exquisitely.
