Freund Der Familie returns with the second instalment of its Grau series, coming as a 2x10'' vinyl with printed inner sleeves.
Leipzig's Freund der Familie has established itself as a driving force in the world of contemporary dub techno over the past decade, releasing material from the likes of Sven Weisemann, YWF, S.Channel and label bosses FDF amongst others. Here the imprint continues its Grau series with more dub leaning electronic cuts.
'Margin' opens the release and lays down pulsating subs, cavernous hats and expansive chords across six minutes with processed dub vocals ebbing and flowing throughout. 'Scope' follows next and embraces a more off-killer feel with choppy stab sequences, menacing bass flutters and spiralling, dubbed-out spoken word.
'Limbic' opens the second part of the package, bringing ethereal atmospherics and shuffled percussion into focus atop weighty muted kicks and snaking subs. Last up to round out the release is 'Utils', bringing a bumpy broken beat and swaying dub chords into the mix while intricate delays and hypnotic vocal chants unfold within.
