The next release on US based Tone Control is in the form of "Over the Rainbow" by newcomers Grassini and Moto. Following the approach of many labels at the moment this one is a double a-sider with a track from each artist either side. Both in the bouncy tech style made famous by the likes of Steve Lawler.
Ben Grassini starts things off with a loopy yet driven mid to peak timer "Over the rainbow". This one used more filtering than an 18s movie shown before the 9pm threashold but does so in a formidable manner. A combination of vocal stabs, many an industrial sound and bouncy baseline make for an excellent dub-cut.
Sayro Moto steers clear of the 4*4 drum line in his offering "Dont Try" with an obvious over lap of sound if not composition than "Over the Rainbow". The broken drum line makes for an interesting proposition and is more driven. However, it stays through to its roots with a more progressive-dubbed approach and uses the samples to good effect.
This release throws a nice prospective on past productions, and I can only ask for more the same please.
