Album


Album 2006 10 Songs. Repeat Repeat. Dance , 2006. 10 tracks 44:06. RepeatRepeat Format: Audio CD. This album is a real grower, on first listen I was very disappointed but with each subsequent listen my appreciation grew until it had rightfully earned its place as another gem in the Soma crown. Coming out around the mid noughties when Soma's emphasis was on electronicaintelligent techno, this album fitted perfectly with the mood of the label. The tracks aren't just quirky and odd, there is melody and warmth in these tracks, the only real piece of bonkers electronica is 'Crocodile'. Repeat Repeat are vinyl addicts Dave Congreve and Mark Rutherford who met in the experimental electronica aisle of a London record shop. Their mutual love of off-kilter techno and acid house led them to the studio where they have since cranked out funky minimal techno cuts such as 'Bounce your Body to the Box' and 'Blippy'. Fans are Andrew Weatherall, Richie Hawtin and Damian Lazarus. With such a skewed outlook on techno it's only fitting that their debut album is titled 'Squints'. Rutherford explains: We were interested in a distorted vision of dance m. Please wait. Wrong audioTry another Squints. 10 tracks.

I'm a big fan of off-kilter techno, and things don't get more off-kilter than with Repeat/Repeat's debut, SQUINTS. From the first wobbly tones and altered vocal samples of "Flip Flop," the duo take their techno to strange, fascinating places, and you can't help but listen, agog, like a scientist discovering something new under a microscope. "Loops And Boundaries" goes for a more meditative mood, with its aching guitar, though the beat is no less insistent, and "Crocodile" goes for shiny tones. "Carpark (Second Edition)" finds a nice balance between the deep and bright tones, and "Wassily" similarly merges an echoing rhythm with an almost angelic top melody. "Why Must" starts off rather mellow, but then an alternate tone comes in, and the track veers into a new, darker direction, a path that's echoed with "Home Stop Welcome." My favorite, however, is the "Glass," with a cock-eyed melody harmonized with a synthesized steel pan tone. The track never loses its rhythm, and the repeated but varied vocal sample becomes a rhythmic element in itself. This is an album that I put on repeat, and then repeat again.
