LumieresLaNuit is glad to welcome Istanbul-based duo Baertaub (Mutlu San & Batuhan Guler) for the 6th release of the label. As in most of the duos, each of the members has his specialty. Whereas Mutlu focuses primarily on the music production, Batu is known by Istanbul's house/techno aficionados as a restless DJ. On the A-side, Entropy reveals a moveable techno feast marked by a distanced horn. On the B-side, Rhizome features a bubbly feeling with insistent though indistinct voice-like cuts led by a determined bassline and a lifting synth melody which travels to various undetermined directions, proposing a fair groove for unfair times. The EP concludes with Strata, an amalgam of spoken words, synths and clear beats offering a solid and relaxing mood that leads to a satisfying exit from this groovy forest. Baertaub's debut EP is called Rhizome (type of plant root) not without reason.Beats, melodies and bassline jump over, crawl under and draw apart from each other in unexpected and non-hierarchical ways. In the end, they all come together in a harmonious manner that creates an overall of excitingly playful forest-like atmosphere. Limited cover designed by LLN. Cover printed with glossy finish on 350g/m2 uncoated black paper, uncoated yellow inside. More info on www.electronlibremusic.com
